Harry Styles Compared To Freddie Mercury After Incredible Performance In London

Harry Styles has been compared to Queen frontman Freddie Mercury after paying homage to him at his Wembley Stadium gig. Watch Styles imitate the legendary singer below:


Throwing back to Queen's magical Live Aid performance in 1985, the former One Direction singer took to the stage and revved up the crowd by asking them to sing back to him.

Dressed in red and white heart-covered overalls, he then he launched into 'ay-oh', the iconic crowd sing-off initially performed by Mercury on the same stage 37 years ago.

Styles showed off his impressive vocal range while the crowd sang the sounds back to him, imitating Mercury's own goosebump-raising moment.

Fans took to social media to continue the comparisons to the two flamboyant, carefree, and talented men.

One Twitter user said: "Harry Styles giving off the same powerful vibe as Freddie Mercury is a beautiful sight to witness."

A second added: "We were robbed of Freddie Mercury and Harry Styles being absolutely infatuated with each other."

A third capped it off with a very nice thought that we hope is true: "If the multiverse theory is real, I hope that Freddie Mercury and Harry Styles are best friends in at least one of them."

A few fans who were at the show shared just how incredible the 'ay-oh' moment was.

One said: "He was having his 'Freddie Mercury at Live Aid' moment, with the whole of Wembley Stadium in his hands and singing back his work. You could see how moved he was."

A second added: "I have been fortunate to have lived long enough to experience both Freddie and Harry. I believe Harry would never compare himself to Freddie. However, they both have a way of mesmerising an audience and leaving us hanging on the edge of our seats to see what they'll do next."

Former One Direction bandmate Niall Horan was spotted in the crowd bopping along to Styles' solo music.

The Irish singer was seen dancing, singing along, and beaming while his friend performed a solo rendition of the boy band's 'What Makes You Beautiful' as part of the Wembley Stadium show.

Horan and his girlfriend sat in the same box as the Styles family, according to a report by the Daily Mail.
