Fifth Harmony took the VMA stage on Sunday night to accept their fourth award since being crowned 2014’s Best New Artist, and while they were one member down from last year, they were no less enthusiastic about the win.
The Best Pop Video win, for their single “Down,” is the girl group’s first since the departure of Camila Cabello in late 2016, and 5H’s remaining members, Ally Brooke, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane and Normani Kordei, were effusive with their praise for the family, fans and faith that got them through the tumultuous year.
“We are so honored to be up here on this stage. I can’t believe we won another VMA!” Jauregui marveled, as the girls took the stage alongside “Down” collaborator Gucci Mane. “I’m a little bit in shock.”
“This is such a monumental moment for us right now. This is so special,” Brooke gushed, tearing up as she thanked the “Harmonizers” and her fellow bandmates. “I’m so glad we’re in this together. I had a vision for us, and I’m just so grateful for how far we’ve come. I love you guys with all my heart.”
(August 11th, 2017 — Los Angeles, CA) — Saving Forever share their new single “Million Ways” today via Epic Records. Get it HERE. It’s the latest anthem from the Chicago rock sensation comprised of teen brothers—14-year-old Khaden Harris [lead vocals & guitar], 15-year-old Kye Harris [bass & vocals], and 16-year-old Kavah Harris [guitar & vocals]. “Million Ways” follows the release of the band’s debut single “Twenty 1” earlier this summer.
Kicking off with an unshakable bass line, the song builds into high energy riffing and a wildly chantable refrain. In addition, the boys shared the appropriately raucous and rambunctious music video for “Million Ways.” In the clip, the trio tears it up at a funky karaoke bar, and everyone in the audience gets in on the action taking over the mic. You’ll find a “million ways” to love them after one listen!
Starting to make big waves, Elvis Duran handpicked Saving Forever as his “Artist of the Month.” They make their debut on NBC’s Today Show Monday August 14. Next up, they hit the stage during Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day at the US Open—airing on ABC August 27. Radio Disney recently added “Million Ways” into rotation and NickMusic just named Saving Forever their Fresh Artist of the week next week while the band will also be a guest DJ on NickRadio.
Saving Forever stand on the cusp of a rock ‘n’ roll revolution. Stay tuned for more soon!
Uncovering everything from Ozzy Osbourne to Twenty One Pilots on their Playstation, Saving Forever taught themselves how to play instruments and cover classic rock favorites in the living room. A demo of their first songs landed in the hands of Epic Records, and the label signed the band after one explosive showcase. Now, they’re ready to take over rock—before even graduating high school!
In the artful visual, the indie enchantress captivates with an elegant and enigmatic performance piece. Over a rich and cinematic production palette, she passionately and powerfully delivers every note before a stunning vocal climax. (Think Fiona Apple channeling Florence + the Machine in a David Lynchian landscape for a reference point and you’re a quarter of the way there!)
About “You,” she comments, “I thought it made sense to share it first, because it sort of sets the stage for the stories that will follow in my upcoming EP, 17 HERO. I see it as the first chapter of a grander story.”
“You” marks Saint’s very first single for Epic Records and introduces her “moody pop” sound and forthcoming major label debut EP—arriving imminently.
Born and raised on Long Island, Morgan Saint connected to music during her formative years, learning piano and starting to write songs as soon as she possibly could. A true ingenue, she taught herself how to play guitar and began building a world of her own. Graduating from Parsons New School for Design, she will release 17 Hero EP this fall 2017.
When Katy Perry lands at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards on August 27, she’ll have an impressive gang of stars taking the stage alongside her.

This year’s crop of performers includes three Artist of the Year nominees — Sheeran, The Weeknd, and Lorde will vie for that prize, alongside Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar, and Ariana Grande. Meanwhile, Perry and The Weeknd boast five nominations each, while Lamar leads the pack with eight nominations.
The 2017 VMAs touch down at the Forum in Inglewood, California, on Sunday, August 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Read this article in FULL via MTV HERE!
