Harry Styles Shines in “As It Was” Grammys Performance
Styles performed his Grammy-nominated song "As It Was" in a silver, fringed pantsuit. The 2023 Grammys stage transformed into Harry's House on Sunday night when six-time nominee Harry Styles performed at the awards show for the second time.
Styles donned a fringed pantsuit with platinum sequins and matching silver shoes. Surrounded by a group of dancers on a rotating red stage, Styles trotted from one side of the stage to the other, with the lively energy he's become known for during his Love on Tour.
Styles came into the night with six nods: record of the year, song of the year, best pop solo performance and best music video for "As It Was," as well as album of the year and pop vocal album for Harry's House. The star was previously nominated for three Grammys in 2021 and took home the award for best pop solo performance for "Watermelon Sugar." Ahead of his performance, Styles had already been awarded the Grammy for pop vocal album.
