Harry Styles Performs Nominated Hit 'As It Was' at 2023 Grammy Awards

Styles is nominated in six categories for this year's ceremony

The 2023 Grammy Awards just became Harry's House!

Harry Styles took the stage at the 65th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night to perform his No. 1 hit "As It Was."

Styles, 29, was clad in a pale pink, sequined one-piece suit with copious fringe as he sang for the crowd at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.

He and a group of backup dancers grooved along to the song on a circular red platform, with Styles strolling along a moving walkway lining the perimeter.

The singer, who had already accepted his first award of the night — best pop vocal album for Harry's House — was his signature dancing-queen self as he capped off his second Grammys performance.

Grammys producer Ben Winston recently opened up about Styles' decision to sing "As It Was" on the Grammys stage on the The Town podcast. He revealed that the star — who last performed "Watermelon Sugar" at the show in 2021 — was adamant about his choice.

"We were talking about Harry Styles, about what he was going to play, and actually I had a slightly different suggestion at one point," Winston related. "He was like, 'No, no, "As It Was" is the hit. That's what I'm nominated for...that's the one we're gonna play.'"
