(And they danced all night to the best song album ever.
MAINNEWS) – Harry Styles’ former One Direction bandmates celebrated the “As It Was” singer after he won Album of the Year at the 2023 Grammy Awards.
Liam Payne took to Instagram early Monday to share a black-and-white photo of Styles, 29, accepting the evening’s most prestigious honor for his critically acclaimed LP “Harry’s House.”
“Wow… this image is really something to wake up to and when you write music like you do Harry you deserve every millisecond of that moment looking down smiling at the trophy you’ve earned,” the “Strip That Down” crooner, 29, wrote. “God bless you brother congratulations.”
Niall Horan, meanwhile, posted a photo of his TV as he watched Styles’ big moment.
“very proud ❤️ @harrystyles,” the “Slow Hands” singer, 29, wrote on his Instagram Story.
One Direction’s other two original members, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik, have not publicly reacted to their ex-bandmate’s win.
During Sunday’s star-studded ceremony in Los Angeles, “Harry’s House” also received the awards for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
Styles arrived on the red carpet in a sparkly, nipple-baring jumpsuit and then changed into a silver fringe number to perform his hit single “As It Was.”
His win at the end of the show was polarizing, with many viewers expecting Beyoncé to walk away with Album of the Year for her much-lauded dance record “Renaissance.”
Queen Bey, 41, still had a big night regardless, leaving with four trophies and therefore becoming the most decorated artist in Grammy history with 32 career wins.
Styles launched his solo career in 2017, less than two years after One Direction announced they were going their separate ways.
Since his time away from the boy band, the “Watermelon Sugar” singer has released three No. 1 albums, starred in blockbuster films like “Dunkirk” and “Don’t Worry Darling,” performed a 15-night residency at Madison Square Garden and become a fashion icon.
