See Harry Styles Play Mick Jagger, Perform New Songs on ‘SNL’
Harry Styles took over Saturday Night Live as the One Direction singer popped up in multiple sketches while also serving as musical guest.
In one sketch, “Celebrity Family Feud: Time Travel Edition,” Styles was called upon to play a young Mick Jagger, with Styles hilariously embellishing the Rolling Stones singer’s trademark mannerisms.
When Kenan Thompson’s Steve Harvey complimented Jagger’s solo output, the singer responded, “Solo? Why would anyone in a successful band go solo? That is insane,” a nod to the (temporary?) dissolution of Styles’ One Direction.
The “Celebrity Family Feud” bit was one of three sketches that the singer and burgeoning actor appeared in as Styles planted the seeds for a potential SNL hosting/musical guest double duty spot in the not-too-distant future.
Styles also made a cameo during Jimmy Fallon’s David Bowie-inspired opening monologue, then reappeared again during the a musical sketch about Civil War soldiers around a campfire:
On top of all the sketch appearances, Styles also debuted a new acoustic number titled “Ever Since New York,” a track off his upcoming self-titled solo LP:
Styles also delivered an impassioned rendition of “Sign of the Times,” the first single off Harry Styles, due out May 12th.
