It’s Easter Sunday here in America, and a British boy band singer has been properly resurrected.
Harry Styles made his televised solo debut last night on Saturday Night Live, showing he’s a bit more these days than just another bloke from the departed One Direction. Styles has been riding high since the release of his new single “Sign Of The Times” a few weeks back, and delivered the ambitious, ’70s-kissed romantic ballad to national television audiences with some pure raw emotion.
Sure, Styles’ voice seems to crack at the end of “Sign Of The Times” — he looked none too pleased with himself — but we’ll take that kind of human emotion and experience over an uber-polished and over-produced pop group any day of the week. And at least we know he wasn’t faking it.
Styles even premiered a new song last night, the appropriately-titled “Ever Since New York,” and you can watch both performances below via SNL.
