Harry Styles has put in some iconic performances in his 10 years in the music business, but we don’t think anything will ever beat him opening the Grammy Awards with Watermelon Sugar and then going on to win his first-ever Grammy.
He set the tone for the annual award show, that adhered to strict covid protocols, opening the music extravaganza which was executive produced by his long time friend Ben Winston and Ben’s production company Fulwell.
Clad in custom black leather Gucci and a feather Boa styled by his long time stylist Harry Lambert and giving the audience a look at some of his iconic tattoos, Harry owned the stage, showing just why he was opening the show. The performance was overseen by Harry’s creative director Molly Hawkins.
The new arrangement of Watermelon Sugar was created by Dev Hynes, who played the bass during the performance. Co-writer and (now Grammy winner) and soon to be daddy, Mitch Rowland, with his heavily pregnant girlfriend Sarah Jones, killed it on the guitar and drums respectively, with Ny Oh on keys and backing vocals. Alayna and India Shawn also provided backing vocals, while Josh Johnson and Spencer Ludwig blew us away on the horns, rounding up Harry’s super talented band for the evening.
If the performance wasn’t enough to ensure the fans went wild, his first Grammy award win was, with ‘Proud of Harry’ quickly becoming a worldwide trend on Twitter.
