Fifth Harmony (formerly LYLAS and 1432)

Category: Groups
Members: Camila Cabello, Normani Hamilton, Dinah-Jane Hansen, Ally Brooke (Hernandez), Lauren Jauregui

  • Genki Girl: Camila is quite often this, especially on Twitter.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Incorporated this into their reprise of "Impossible," (the song they sang at the Judges' Homes stage of the competition), which seemed like a natural decision given that three of its five members are of Spanish-speaking origin.
  • Older Than They Look: Dinah, which is especially jarring since she's the actually the youngest in the group, and the tallest too.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: Originally deciding on the name LYLAS, the group was forced to change their name upon making it to the live shows, since a group (made up of Bruno Mars' sisters, no less) already occupied the name. They settled on 1432 as a replacement, but then again changed it soon after.
  • Transatlantic Equivalent: To Little Mix of The X Factor UK, given how they started as solo artists and were later put in a group. Bonus points if they end up winning the whole thing.

    • Now that they've finished third, they have been frequently been compared to One Direction. Both groups have five members, were solo artists put together in a group, and have the exact same final ranking. Both band's names consist of a number and a word and are commonly called by initials consisting of the number and the first letter of the second word. If they become the show's most successful contestants, then the comparisons will be inevitable.
  • Younger Than They Look: Ally is easily the shortest member of the group and looks like she could be one of the youngest, but she's actually the oldest.

Emblem 3

Category: Groups
Members: Drew Chadwick, Keaton Stormberg, Wesley Stromberg

  • Berserk Button: DO NOT CALL THEM A BOYBAND.
  • Big Eater: Drew always seems to be seen eating something.
  • Old Shame: By the look of things, they're already starting to regard their time on The X Factor as this, and the season hasn't even finished yet...
  • Shocking Elimination: Nobody was expecting Fifth Harmony to beat them to the finals...
  • Surfer Dude: Their main schtick.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Drew is often this, which is something that hasn't gone unnoticed by his fellow competitors.

Diamond White

Category: Teens

Cece Frey

Category: Young Adults

  • Alpha Bitch: Subverted. She only thought she was an Alpha and acted like one.
  • Elimination Houdini: Survived the bottom two 3 times (including the first live show), and was saved over popular and honestly much more talented contestants like Willie Jones, Jason Brock, and Beatrice Miller, before being automatically eliminated in sixth place.
  • I'm Not Here to Make Friends: Directly lampshaded nearly word-for-word in her first appearance.
  • It Is Pronounced Tro Pay: After much confusion, she clarified that her last name is pronounced like 'fry,' not 'fray.'
  • Jerkass: Easily one of the most unlikable and polarizing contestants ever. Displayed an obnoxious, icy, abrasive personality to almost anyone she encountered.
  • The Runner-Up Takes It All. Mostly averted. Apart from producing her debut single "Dead 2 Me", people seem to only remember her as "that bitch from X Factor...back in 2012."
  • Small Name, Big Ego
  • Transatlantic Equivalent: One can't watch her without thinking how similar her trajectory in the competition was to that of The X Factor UK's Katie Waissel.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: She claimed to not care what other people thought about her all throughout the early stages of the competition, which probably didn't help her once it came time for the audience to dictate the eliminations.

Jennel Garcia

  • Badass Adorable
  • The Cutie
  • Expy: It's almost as if mentor Demi Lovato purposely set this girl up to be an exact replica of herself...
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Shocking Elimination: One of the earliest frontrunners and undoubtedly the strongest of the Young Adults, she eliminated by the judges when ending up in the bottom 2 during the third live show.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Eliminated after three performances.
