Harry Styles performed ‘Falling’ at the BRITS and it left the crowd feeling emotional.
Harry Styles appeared on the BRIT Awards Tuesday in London to perform his song “Falling.” For the performance, the singer stood on a stage covered in water — with more water pouring out of a grand piano — as he crooned the ballad.
The song comes off Styles’ recent album Fine Line, which dropped last year in December. The singer told Rolling Stone that the “dreamy soul ballad” came about when his producer Tom “Kid Harpoon” Hull came over to his house one day.
“Tom had come up to my place to grab something, and he’d sat at the piano and I’d just got out of the shower,” Styles said. “He started playing, and we wrote it there. So I was completely naked when I wrote that song.”
Styles has been making the rounds on TV lately. He showed his love for Joni Mitchell by covering “Big Yellow Taxi” in the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast studio. He also appeared on a segment of The Late Late Show, salsa dancing with host James Corden’s parents in Miami during the Super Bowl. Styles was originally scheduled to perform in Miami that weekend in conjunction with the game, but his set was cancelled due to severe thunderstorms leaving many fans upset.
He did get to perform with Lizzo during her set at Pandora and SiriusXM’s show, dueting on her song “Juice.” Lizzo repaid the favour by covering “Adore You” for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.
Harry Styles attended the BRITS and sported a black ribbon on his Gucci suit. The black ribbon stands for mourning. Caroline Flack, Harry’s ex-girlfriend passed away after killing herself a few days prior. The pair first met on X Factor spin-off show The Xtra Factor, which Flack presented while Harry featured as a contestant on the 2010 edition of the ITV talent show.
