One of the most memorable moments of the night was when Fifth Harmony performed. As the five of them begin to sing on the top platform, the center member(who wasn’t Camila) falls off the platform backwards and the real performance initiates. As many already know it is no longer five of them since their member Camila left the singing group months ago to pursue her own solo career as an artist.
