Grammy Awards 2023: Harry Styles is CONFIRMED to perform along with Lizzo, Bad Bunny, and Sam Smith


Harry Styles was officially added to the growing roster of performers at the 2023 Grammy Awards, due to be held on February 5.

The As It Was hitmaker, 28, is nominated for an incredible six awards for his record-breaking album Harry’s House, which was released in May 2022.

Harry’s House is the former One Direction member’s third solo studio album since the boyband went on a ‘permanent hiatus’ in August 2015.

The Don’t Worry Darling actor had the second-largest opening week for an album in 2022, behind Taylor Swift’s Midnights.

He also had four songs from the album on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart, which makes him the first British solo artist to achieve this, and among all British acts, he joined The Beatles, who achieved the feat in 1964.

As It Was sat at number one on the Billboard charts for 15 consecutive weeks, becoming the longest-running US number one by a UK act and the fourth longest-running number-one in the chart’s history.

Harry previously performed at the 2021 Grammys, where he donned a jaw-dropping all-leather outfit, complete with no shirt.
