Who Is Dinah Jane? X Factor 2012 Contestant Background Info
Well, first off, this girl can sing. Like sing-sing. We’ll get used to the insane amount of talent in these young’uns at some point, but for now, we’re still impressed that Dinah is barely 15 years old. If you saw any of the X Factor promo videos, you probably noticed a girl featured prominently with red streaks in her hair — That would be Dinah Jane Hansen.
Although Dinah didn't make it through as a solo artist, she did get grouped with some other amazing solo ladies to form the girl group Fifth Harmony, which made it through to the final three!
It turns out we might be the last to hear about the singing sensation. Apparently, we could have just asked about her on Twitter or Facebook; she has over 220 thousand followers on the former and another 60,000 or so on the latter!
One of the coolest things about Dinah is that the Santa Ana native’s Tongan heritage is bringing new fans from the Pacific Islands, New Zealand, and beyond to the show. Her roots are strong, and her mom says that she knew Dinah was a star when she was just four years old when she heard the vibrato in her voice as the tyke sang “Happy Birthday.”
We think she’s going to follow in the footsteps of fellow throaty divas Alicia Keys and Beyoncé. What do you think?
