Camila Cabello Auditioned for 'The Voice' Before Switching to 'The X Factor'

The former member of Fifth Harmony explains why she gave up her ticket to perform in front of the coaches and chose to audition for the rival singing contest.

AceShowbiz - Camila Cabello once auditioned for "The Voice". Initially finding fame on "The X Factor USA]" in 2012 as part of girl group Fifth Harmony before going on to a solo career, the 25-year-old pop star revealed that her first stab at success actually came in the form of an audition for the rival talent show she now serves as a judge on.

"The truth is - I actually did audition for 'The Voice'. I'm not even sure I can say the story. I did make it in the producer round, not the TV round. I never auditioned for the coaches!" she said.

The "Don't Go Yet" hitmaker went on to explain that she eventually decided not to continue with "The Voice" because she was a big fan of boy band One Direction - who were put together on the British version of "The X Factor" - and hoped to meet them.

She told Access Hollywood, "And then I was like, I really wanted to meet One Direction, and I knew that they were gonna perform for 'X Factor'. So I was like, 'I'm just gonna risk it and not do 'The Voice' and audition for 'X Factor.' And then I did end up meeting One Direction! It was a pretty wild move!! It's like it was a magnet though, I was meant to be back."

Earlier this year, Camila performed "Havana" on "The Voice" alongside fellow judges Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, and John Legend and admitted it was a "really cool" experience.

She said, "They're such incredible artists I feel almost embarrassed that they sang my song. But it was really cool. We did like one quick 15-minute rehearsal [during lunch], which was cool because we didn't have time to overthink things. The next day we performed it, we ran over it a few times and then we [filmed] it."
