article imageReview: Fifth Harmony puts on magical show at Coney Island Amphitheater Special

Brooklyn - On August 2, girl group Fifth Harmony performed at the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk in Brooklyn, New York.
This was a part of "The 7/27 Tour," where JoJo and Victoria Monet served as their special musical guests, warming up the stage for Fifth Harmony.
As they took the stage, archived video footage of the girls displayed on the giant televised screen, and they opened with "That's My Girl" and their infectious hit "Miss Movin' On," which was met with a raucous response. It was followed by "Sledgehammer" and the title track of their previous studio album "Reflection."
Equally beautiful was their rendition of "I "Lied." Their vocals on "No Way" were delicate, and they sat on stools to serenade their fans to "We Know" and "Dope," where they looked as glamorous as ever. They got up off the stools and sang "Squeeze," and their fans served as their backup singers, as many knew all the lyrics.
After an outfit change, Fifth Harmony displayed their sassy side on the spitfire "Big Bad Wolf," and they were able to show everybody who was "BO$$" on that hit single, and they continued with "Not That Kinda Girl." "Make some noise," they shouted, as white laser lights dimmed from the stage.
They inquired if everybody was having a good time tonight, and encouraged them to sing along on "All In My Head (Flex)." The highlight performance of the evening was "Brave, Honest, Beautiful," where they were backed solely by an acoustic guitar, as they displayed their lilting voices. Following "Gonna Get Better," they closed their set with the fan favorite "Voicemail" and "Worth It."
For their encore, the girls returned to sing the song that everybody was waiting for: their smash single, the multi-platinum-selling "Work From Home," which garnered them a huge standing ovation.
The Verdict
Overall, Fifth Harmony was exceptional at the Coney Island Amphitheater in Brooklyn. Their vocals were soothing and hypnotic, sounding like the Pussycat Dolls meets Destiny's Child, and that ought to be taken as a major compliment. They were able to show Brooklyn what they were made of: pure talent and a commanding stage presence. Their live show earned an A rating.
