“Being introduced to the Syco and Epic family means the world to us,” Camila Cabello said. “We get to learn from and work with the best in the business, people who have built the careers of artist we look up too. The fact that we’re being given the opportunity to make music that we want feels like a dream we never want to wake up from, and I literally just have to pinch myself.”

Simon put in his two cents, saying, “I knew from the girls’ first performance at judges’ homes in Miami that we’d done the right thing. The chemistry between the Fifth Harmony girls both on and off stage is fantastic. They are really great girls, who have become best friends. They’re great fun to be around and most importantly, they are all incredibly talented.”

It was just last week that Simon also brought Emblem3 under his wing, signing them to Syco and Columbia Records. Besides 1D, the two groups also join the talents of Cher Llyod, Olly Murs and Leona Lewis. Let’s just say Simon knows what he’s doing!
