Viewers Baffled By Harry Styles' Accent As He Makes Speech At Brits

Fans were left confused by Harry Styles' acceptance speech following his Brit Awards win, with viewers unable to get over his bizarre accent.

The former One Direction member was born in Redditch and brought up in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, so his new American-tinged accent came as a surprise:

The 27-year-old said: "I just continue to be baffled by moments like this.

"They make me more and more incredibly grateful that I get to do this job every day.

"I am really happy and proud to be here celebrating British music tonight.

"I want to thank my friends for being so generous to me, always. And everyone who always has my back.

"Thank you so much to everything you did for our country, this one is for you."

Harry picked up the award for British Single of the Year for his hit 'Watermelon Sugar', which was released in May 2020.

Last night's BRIT Awards ceremony left many viewers feeling 'emotional' after seeing the awards take place before a live audience - which was largely made up of key workers.

While big bashes have been out of bounds for some time, the government has recently started trialling large gatherings through pilot events - one of which took place last night with the BRIT awards.

The O2 Arena in London played host to the UK's largest indoor pilot event, with 4,000 audience members.

At the BRITs, 2,500 of those in attendance were key workers, who have been helping keep the nation afloat throughout the pandemic.

Opening the ceremony, host Jack Whitehall said: "I can't tell you how grateful we are to be here tonight for the first live event back in the O2 arena.

"Yes, this venue has been emptier than Piers Morgan's diary.

"Covid's had more comebacks than Craig David but this evening we look forward to a brighter future.

"No more puzzles, no more Zoom quizzes. We have got an audience, we have got dancers, we have got pop stars.

"We are back."
