Similarities Between 5H & 1D
- One Direction did not know each other before X Factor, as well as Fifth Harmony.
- They both were formed by Simon Cowell.
- One Direction shortens to 1D, Fifth Harmony shortens to 5H (A number and a letter).
- There are 5 people in both groups.
- There are 12 letters in One Direction and Fifth Harmony.
- Zayn's and Ally's grandparents passed away during X Factor and they are both 19 years old.
- Both ended up in 3rd place on The-X Factor.
- Normani performed their song What Makes You Beautiful with Arin Ray in the second round of bootcamp, and What Makes You Beautiful was nominated in the Pepsi Challenge for Fifth Harmony to sing.
- Simon Cowell was their mentor on The X-Factor.
- One Direction sang Torn in the Finals of The X-Factor UK and the video was uploaded on December 12th, Fifth Harmony sang Impossible for the Semi-Finals and the video was uploaded on December 12th as well. So that means that both of the songs that both groups sang on Judges Houses and then Live Shows were uploaded exactly the same date but the difference is that 1D performed in 2010 and 5H on 2012.
- Liam auditioned on 2008 on The X-Factor when he was 14 but later was eliminated, Dinah Jane forgot the lyrics of her song on Bootcamp: If those two facts wouldn't happened probably neither of the groups (1D & 5H) would exist because if both of them (Liam and Dinah) make it trough to Live Shows or Judges Houses they would make it as solo artist later on the show.
- There are three numbers separating 1 (One) of 5 (Fifth), and there are three letters separating D (Direction) of H (Harmony).
