Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters are having to come out from under the bed to fight off Fifth Harmony’s Harmonizers for Billboard’s Fan Army Face-Off this week. Five members may mean five times the fans for 5H, but even quintupled, Harmonizers are falling behind against Gaga’s Little Monsters.

Lady Gaga began her glamorous monster motherhood in 2008 with her No. 2-charting Billboard 200 debut album The Fame. Since then, Gaga’s asymmetrical, out-of-the-box costumes alongside her dance/electronica sound, fierce attitude and charitable heart has kept Monsters wanting more. After Gaga’s breakout hit “Just Dance” was ingrained in the minds of millennials, the pop star released hit after hit with “Poker Face,” “LoveGame” and “Paparazzi.”  Gaga quickly became “Mother Monster” as her fame skyrocketed; Gaga’s monster metaphor stems from her EP The Fame Monster (2009). In the past year, Gaga became engaged, rocked an Oscars tribute and was Billboard’s 2015 Woman of the Year.

Fifth Harmony brought together their Harmonizers after they formed on The X Factor in 2012. The girl-power group peaked at No. 4 and No. 5 with their albums 7/27 (2016) and Reflection (2015) respectively. Their hits “Bo$$” “Sledgehammer” and “Worth It” have only emphasized the group as pop/R&B diva feminists. The five women’s recent hit “Work From Home” featured Ty Dolla $ign and brought a sexy edge to Fifth Harmony. Harmonizers are the girl group's biggest source of power.
