“I think on nights like tonight, it’s obviously so important for us to remember there’s no such thing as best in music. I don’t think any of us sit in the studio making decisions based on what is gonna get us one of these. This is really, really kind. I’m so, so grateful. This doesn’t happen to people like me very often and this is so, so nice. Thank you very much.”
Earlier in the evening, Styles also performed his hit single ‘As It Was’ on the Grammys stage. Joined by dancers, the star appeared in a silver hassled jumpsuit to dance on a raised red circular stage. After the song ended, he received a standing ovation from the crowd.
