Fifth Harmony member Dinah Jane Hansen used Twitter to praise Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's efforts, congratulating the athlete on his performance.

Both Tagovailoa and Hansen are of Polynesian descent.
Tagovailoa was instrumental in helping his team secure the win, helping to bring Alabama back from a 13-point deficit during the second half of the game. Other members of the sports world also complimented the freshman quarterback, including UFC fighter Max Holloway, ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer and former Alabama running back Mark Ingram.
