The X Factor
Lauren Jauregui auditioned for the X Factor in Greensboro, North Carolina with the song "If I Ain't Got You" by Alicia Keys. Lauren was given four yeses and allowed to move on to bootcamp. Demi Lovato was really impressed by Lauren because she has a perfect tone at age 16.
Lauren sang E.T. during the first round of bootcamp, but it was not shown. On the second round of bootcamp, she was put up against country group Sister C with the song These Arms Of Mine. She was later eliminated and put into Fifth Harmony.
Known for being one of the group's strongest vocalists, Lauren and the other members of Fifth Harmony decided to take on songs that showcased their vocal abilities such as "Set Fire to The Rain " by Adele, "A Thousand Years " by Christina Perri, "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) " by Kelly Clarkson, and the performance that put the girls on the map, "Anything Could Happen " by Ellie Goulding (Lauren was the one who suggested that they do the song). After the Set Fire To The Rain performance despite judges LA Reid, who coldly called them "Fifth Unison", and Britney Spears clearing not liking them, the girls got voted through every week by the public and had the support and confidence of their mentor Simon Cowell, who always let them know how proud he was of them.
