Dinah Jane Milika Ilaisaane Hansen was born in Santa Ana, California on June 22, 1997 (age 18) to parents Gordon and Milika Fot’aika. She is the oldest of six siblings. She is of Polynesian, Tongan and Danish descent. Hansen auditioned for The X Factor singing “If I Were a Boy” by Beyoncé, during which L.A. Reid stated that she “took the song to places that even Beyoncé didn’t”. She cites Ciara, Beyoncé, Leona Lewis, Mariah Carey and Etta James as her musical influences. During the final round of bootcamp, Hansen sang “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson with another contestant. She forgot the lyrics as she was singing the song; due to this, Hansen was eliminated as a solo performer, but was later brought back into the competition to form Fifth Harmony.
