Congratulations to Harry Styles. The X Factor UK alum and former One Direction member won his first Grammy award during Sunday night’s live telecast (March 14) on CBS.
The singer accepted a statue for Best Pop Solo Performance for his hit song “Watermelon Sugar.”
“Wow. To everyone who made this record with me, thank you so much. This was the first song we wrote after… my first album came out, during a day off in Nashville, and I just want to say thanks to Tom, Tyler and Mitch and everyone, Rob Stringer, and everyone at Columbia.”
He added, “My manager Jeffrey [Azoff], who has always nudged me to be better and never pushed me and thank you so much. And I feel very grateful to be here. Thank you.”
Then, Harry began acknowledging the the other nominees in his category when he was bleeped for saying, “All of these songs are f***ing massive, so thank you so much. I feel very honored to be among all of you.”
Watch Harry accept his award…without any bleeps!
Plus, more thank yous from Harry backstage after his win.
Harry beat out Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa and his ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift, Who, at this point, couldn’t care less. I mean, look how friendly they are in this short clip!
