So. Fla. X-Factor finalists meet and greet fans
MIAMI (WSVN) -- A couple of South Florida X-Factor stars got a chance to soak up the spotlight.
"We're here for Belen Tombola. It's like a fund-raising event for the school of Belen Jesuit," said Lauren Jauregui. "My brother goes to school here, so they asked us to do like a meet and greet."
Jauregui and Camila Cabello answered the call at Belen Jesuit Prep. The money raised will help benefit scholarships.
They're two-fifths of the X-Factor group 5th Harmony, and they were just as excited to meet fans, as the fans were to meet the South Florida songbirds. "They're really just quirky and adorable and awkward," said a fan. "They're just really relatable."
"I love them so much," said another fan, "and today's my birthday!"
Many drove or waited for hours just for the chance to see them in person. "Four hours," said one girl. "We would stand the whole day just to meet them."
Lauren and Camila said they are still adjusting to X-Factor fame.
This trip home gave them a last chance before heading back to the studio to make beautiful music in LA. "It's extremely surreal," said Jauregui. "Like you get there, and they're like, 'Lauren!' and you're just like, 'How do you know my name?' It's super weird."
"I'm excited to get back to work," said Cabello, "coz we've been here chilling, now back at it."
