Little Mix vs Fifth Harmony: Battle Of The Girl Bands

little mix vs fifth harmony

Little Mix and Fifth Harmony have a lot in common. They both came from the X Factor, they’re both signed to Simon Cowell’s record label and they’re both extremely talented. There’s enough space for both girl bands in the music industry but one will always outshine the other in some way.

Whether it’s Little Mix’s vocal ability or Fifth Harmony’s dance moves, each band is talented in their own right but it seems Mixers and Harmonizers will never see eye to eye. That’s why we’ve created this battle. So both fandoms can fight it out once and for all.

It’s Little Mix vs Fifth Harmony, everybody! Let’s compare the two groups and let the battle of the girl bands commence…


Does Jesy’s strong vibrato give you all the feels or is it Dinah’s powerful vocals that give you goosebumps? Both Little Mix and Fifth Harmony can sing, there’s no doubt. They each have their unique vocalist (Jesy, Camila) and their strong leads (Perrie, Dinah) but what is it that separates each girl group from one another?

Collectively, Little Mix are superior but individually, Fifth Harmony conquer.

Fifth Harmony tend to shine individually. Each member has a distinct voice and they each bring something different to the table.

Little Mix on the other hand mainly stand out when they harmonize. When Perrie, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Jade sing together, it’s pure magic. The girls’ voices blend brilliantly.

Dance Moves

From hair flips to hip rolling, Fifth Harmony can do it all. They make sure to incorporate some sass into every performance and nail every synchronized dance move. Their choreography is almost always sexy and imitates a lot of what the Pussycat Dolls used to do.

Little Mix’s choreography is a little more on the fun side and is similar to how the Spice Girls used to perform. They follow a synchronized routine and shake less booty compared to Fifth Harmony. Both girl groups can bust a move though, that’s for sure!


Who needs Beyonce when you’ve got Fifth Harmony and Little Mix? Both girl bands have released their own feminist anthem. Not only do Bo$$ and Salute sound eerily similar with their hip-hop beat but they also both encourage girl power. You can check out just how similar they are by listening to this awesome mash-up.

Other than Bo$$ and Salute, Little Mix and Fifth Harmony’s music is not so different from each other. Even DNA and Miss Movin’ On pretty much sound the same.

Fifth Harmony and Little Mix have both released stunning ballads, great feisty tracks and fun bubblegum pop hits. It would be difficult to choose one over the other in terms of songs.


Now this is where things get tricky. Little Mix and Fifth Harmony have both recorded some incredible covers. It’s almost impossible to pick one over the other.

Little Mix’s live mashup of Jason Derulo’s Want You To Want Me with Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody is certainly the video to watch if you want to be blown away. Perrie, Leigh-Anne, Jesy and Jade each demonstrate their undeniable talent in this live lounge session and almost have us wondering whether the Fifth Harmony girls can do just as good.

Then there’s 5H’s rendition of Taylor Swift’s Red which truly lets their talent shine. Lauren, Camila, Dinah, Normani and Ally take us to heaven and back with their sensational vocals. This cover will make any fan proud to be a Harmonizer.


In terms of the X Factor, Little Mix obviously hold the trump card. They won the UK show in 2011 while Fifth Harmony came third in the US in 2012. Nevertheless, 5H’s Worth It was a global hit, peaking within the top ten of the charts in 8 countries and selling 1.5 million digital copies in the U.S ALONE.

However the Little Mix ladies have broken a record that was previously held by the Spice Girls. Their debut album, DNA earned the highest debut U.S chart position by a British girl group at number four. It says a lot if you can beat the Spice Girls!

They’ve even made history with the longest reigning girl-group number one album (Glory Days) since the Spice Girls.

While Mixers and Harmonizers have a mutual dislike for each other, the two girl bands actually get on! Here’s a video to prove it…

Little Mix and Fifth Harmony get along pretty well but it seems the two fandoms will never Mix and live in Harmony. So after going through this article, who wins the battle of the girl bands?

Let us know which girl band you prefer in the comments…

  1. I thiink the battle goes to 5thH
    The jezzy’s voice very hard to little mix than other vocals.
    And 5th harmony has amazing camilla but dinahs voice the perfect voice among these all groups.
    And the stage performances killed by 5th harmony.
    And also 5thH lyrics soo good than little mix
    Im so sad cz fifth harmony never releaed their amazing 3 songs that are monies,all again,no way.i think they perfect more than work from home and worthit.

  2. Personally I prefer LM over 5H purely because of their harmonies. Being in a group, male or female, harmonies are a crucial part and although there is no doubt 5H can harmonise, every time they have released an album I’ve been waiting for that stripped back song that showcases their unity in the power of harmony but it just hasn’t happened. I have never really understood why tho. When they harmonise in their covers they sound AMAZING. 5H have just always seemed like a group of solo artists rather than an actual girl group but I am definitely looking forward to their solo material, If Cam and Mani are anything to go by it’s gonna be class.

  3. In my opinion and in my lane, most DEFINITELY FIFTH HARMONY!!!! I honestly don’t listen to Little Mix much but when I do its so much fun to listen to. The kind of personality/style that I have matches theirs. Both girl groups can sing and harmonize their asses off. I will never say LM can do better or 5H can out harmonize them. One thing I will say that LM has shown that 5H wasn’t allowed to show (via their labels) is creativity. That’s one thing ILL DEF GIVE TO LM. Let’s not forget you have to also look at sales and who has charted more in other countries besides their own and 5H has proven that. 5H not only broke down the doors in the US Brazil Japan Australia Canada and the Western part of Europe, 5H has broken down doors in the UK. LM of course has done the same simply cause its home but LM has not garnered much success in the US. I’d have to agree that Little Mix’s lyrics mean something more than 5H’s but 5H’s is NOT at all bad. What I’d like to disagree on is 5H has never written any of their songs: FALSE. Before even gainging control and writing the self titled album, 5H has written on both Reflection & 7/27 as well Better Together! AGAIN, you also have to look at who their production label. Artists for years were told they couldn’t take control of themselves and their music. 5H was also young when they started out (ranging from 15-19) so the industry can take a toll and manipulate young people. This is the same thing that happened to TLC. And OF COURSE 5H and LM are gonna seem similar in some way, they’re both signed to Simon’s record labels. Theyre gonna send some producers who have worked with one gg to work with the other gg. 5H is also signed to L.A. Reid’s label. I wish the best and pray almost everyday for 5H as well as LM because both have worked SO HARD AND DESERVE SO MUCH. I go for 5H because I see so much potential in them and also we live in the same country. Both of them are so different in their unique way: LM has a more child-like young and fun type of style (mostly pop) while 5H is childlike and young but they also have this maturity divaish type of style (Contemporary R&B/ Pop/R&B. #TeamFifthHarmony
