Harry Styles wins his first Grammy award with Watermelon Sugar single

Accepting his award at the socially distanced event at the Los Angeles Convention Centre, the former One Direction star said he was “very honoured” to be recognised alongside his fellow nominees.

Speaking to reporters after his win, Styles thanked his fans.

He said: “I feel incredibly lucky to get to work in music and make music as my job every day and this is an incredibly sweet icing on the cake of what I get to do everyday, so thank you so much.

“And I want to thank my fans for giving me an environment to be free to make the music that I want to make and supporting me along the way over the last 10 years.

“And everyone who made this record with me and my label and my managers and everyone who supports me and everything, all of it, thank you so much.

“I feel very, very lucky tonight.”

His win came after he started the show with a rendition of the hit, which he performed wearing an open leather jacket and trouser combination with a green scarf.

Host Trevor Noah joked that “the UK is diverse” after noting that Styles is from the same country as Boris Johnson.

Fans on Twitter were quick to note the reaction of Swift was when Styles was announced as the winner. The singer was seen clapping and nodding her head as Styles made his way onto the stage to accept the award.

Others were more focused on his performance and his choice of attire.

“If a year ago you told me i’d be having a breakdown over a 27 year old man singing in a leather outfit and a feather boa I would have probably believed you because harry styles is gorgeous,” one user said.

Another wrote: “I want this video to play on a loop at my funeral. there will be no sadness and pain. just harry styles dancing with his tits out.”
