Simon Cowell Sounds Off On The Fate Of Fifth Harmony!

We've been wondering for a while now if Fifth Harmony is bound for a breakup.

Considering the girl group has cancelled a bunch of dates on their 7/27 Tour, and Lauren Jauregui, Normani Kordei, Dinah-Jane Hansen, and Ally Brooke Hernandez don't seem to get along with Camila Cabello, it's not entirely unlikely.

In fact, plenty of people are speculating that 5H won't even last long enough to release a third album together! Oof!

On Wednesday, The New Music Buzz caught up with Simon Cowell at the finale of America's Got Talent to ask about the fierce females' fates, since the lovely ladies are signed to the music exec's Syco label.

The TV personality said what's going on with the X Factor alums is the "same with any group." Could he be referencing Zayn Malik's desire to ditch One Direction, or the other guys wanting to explore solo ventures?!

The UK native explained:

"We have conversations about what they want to do. We gotta listen to them. It'll be fine."

While that seems reassuring to all the Harmonizers out there, the 56-year-old quickly cringed before adding:

"I hope!"

Hmmm. Doesn't exactly sound so promising after all. Watch Simon visably grimace over the fate of Fifth Harmony (below)!

"It's not only a song. It speaks to you. You are amazing. Grace has to win. This is my favorite moment of the night."

He's not wrong! She's AH-Mazing!
