Harry Styles made history on Sunday night (Feb. 5) when he won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year! After one of the most competitive races in recent Grammys history, Styles took home the top honor and gave an emotional acceptance speech that had everyone in tears.
The “As It Was” singer was presented with the award by Trevor Noah and a superfan who had championed his work throughout the broadcast. Breaking out in tears, Styles couldn’t seem to contain his excitement when he approached the microphone. “S–t,” he said, breaking into a smile. He thanked his fellow nominees in the speech — including Beyoncé, Adele, Brandi Carlile and others — for being a constant source of inspiration for his music.
Styles also took a moment to acknowledge his surprise win in a stacked category. “I feel like on nights like tonight, there is no such thing as ‘best in music,’” he said. “I don’t think any of us sit in the studio making decisions based on what’s gonna get us one of these.”
Closing his speech, the star tearfully thanked the Recording Academy again, saying, “This is really really kind … this doesn’t happen to people like me very often, and this is so nice, thank you very much.” Styles was nominated for six awards on Sunday night, including for record and song of the year; the star took home the Grammy for best pop vocal album earlier in the broadcast.
