Then he won the night’s first award for Best Pop Vocal Album for Harry’s House.
He also pulled off a pretty big upset for all the fans of our generation’s greatest female performers by winning the final award of the night, Album of the Year, and beating out the likes of Beyoncé, Lizzo, Adele, and others.
But, the moment that really caught my attention was his highly-anticipated performance of “As It Was” because it wasn’t as I expected it to be.
The Don’t Worry Darling star appeared on stage along with a crowd of people on a red rotating platform reminiscent of the one from the “As It Was” music video, and instantly something felt off to me.
However, I was impressed he could recapture the same emotion and visuals from his award-winning song’s music video.
When this profoundly emotional moment hit, it took me back to when I watched the “As It Was” music video premiere at least 30 times.
The climax of the performance was Harry and the dancers breaking out the familiar choreography from the final act of the music video, and honestly, it saved the show for me.
My man was singing his butt off, reminding the world why he can pack concert halls 15 days in a row in New York and Los Angeles, but maybe it just wasn’t enough for some critics.
While Taylor Swift loved every second, rocking out in the audience, Twitter definitely had some mixed emotions.
