While headlining weekend two of Coachella on 22 April, Harry recruited Lizzo for a crowd-pleasing duet of Gloria Gaynor's “I Will Survive” as well as the One Direction calling card, “What Makes You Beautiful.” The best part? The pair hit the stage in matching hot pink outfits complete with oversized feathered coats.
Underneath the campy outerwear, Harry wore a hot pink jacket, strawberry-embellished vest, and matching pants, while Lizzo paired her own lace-up fuchsia pants with a ripped t-shirt. For her beauty look, Lizzo opted for complimentary pink eyeshadow, a holographic lip, and adorable pink hearts affixed to her hair.
Lizzo shared a clip of the performance on TikTok on 23 April:
It's only fitting that Lizzo stayed on stage for “What Makes You Beautiful.” During Lizzo's Saturday Night Live hosting debut on 16 April, the “Rumors” singer addressed speculation about their relationship, joking, "They think I’m collecting members of One Direction like Infinity Stones.”
After bringing the house down at Coachella, Lizzo shared a selfie with Styles with the caption, “Proud of you @harrystyles. Thank you for having me.”
This isn't the first time Lizzo and Harry Styles have teamed up. In January 2020, Lizzo surprised fans by bringing out the “As It Was” singer during a SiriusXM and Pandora concert in Miami, Florida. At the time, the pair performed Lizzo's megahit, “Juice.”
Though Harry Styles and Lizzo's onstage chemistry is undeniable, the “Truth Hurts” singer was not Styles' only special guest at Coachella. On Friday, April 15, Styles enlisted country music icon Shania Twain to perform duets of her '90s classics, “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” and “You’re Still the One.”
“In the car, with my mother as a child, this lady taught me to sing,” Harry said, per CNN. “To you, for the memories you gave me with my mother, I will be forever grateful.” He added, “This is very special for me. Thank you so much.”
Can Harry Styles + Friends perform at Coachella every year?!
