Harry's acceptance speech at the Grammys 2021

Harry thanked everyone who made this possible for him. He felt grateful for the win and kept his acceptance speech very short! Taylor Swift who dated Harry Styles for almost a year back in 2012 applauded her ex’s win. In fact, Harry was competing against Taylor Swift’s amazing song ‘Cardigan’ to win this category and he did it!

While Harry is celebrating his win, fellow One Direction member Zayn Malik couldn’t keep his anger for the Record Academy to himself. Zayn called out the Grammy’s racist behavior on his Twitter account. Twitter users were surprised at this because Zayn’s tweet on March 9th 2021 was a bit too late as the nominations for the Grammys came out in November 2020. However, he later clarified that his post was not about the nominations but rather the lack of transparency in the system. 


Harry Styles has definitely outdone himself this time. Winning a Grammy at the young age of 27 is not easy and Harry did it! Olivia must be so proud of him. Do you think Harry deserved to win this category?
