New York, Europe Brief News – Harry Styles closed out an epic night at the 2023 GRAMMYs with his biggest career win to date: Album Of The Year.
Styles got nominated in six additional categories at tonight’s ceremony. He got nods for Record of the Year (“As It Was”), Song of the Year (“As It Was”), Best Pop Solo Performance (“As It Was”), Best Pop Vocal Album (Harry’s House), and Best Music Video (“As It Was”).
He won for Best Pop Vocal Album and also performed “As It Was” during the ceremony.
“I’ve been so, so inspired by every artist in this category with me at a lot of different times in my life,” Styles said as he accepted his award. “I think – like on nights like tonight – it’s obviously so important for us to remember that there is no such thing as best in music.”
Styles added, “This doesn’t happen to people like me very often and this is so, so nice.”
The win came as a surprise to some, as Beyoncé, who had a record-making night, and Bad Bunny, who would have made history with his win, were considered top contenders going into the night, as was Adele, who was up for a possible repeat win.
“Harry’s House,” the singer’s third studio album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts and included Styles’ hit “As It Was,” which stayed at No. 1 on the charts for 15 consecutive weeks..
Sunday’s show was attended by Adele, Taylor Swift, Jay-Z Shania Twain and Stevie Wonder, with performances from Lizzo, Steve Lacy and Brandi Carlile.
