Okay, so like I said on air, I’ve unfortunately never seen Harry Styles perform live. I want to!!!! So badly!!! But, I haven’t had the chance yet. And hopefully one day I will. But until then, if you’re like me and haven’t been able to see him perform live, I just know you’ll appreciate this video of him performing at Coachella.
If you’re already a Harry Styles fan, of course, you’re going to love it. But, I myself am not even the biggest Harry Styles fan. I was never a Directioner really (even though I know several of their songs by heart!) But I haven’t listened to every single one of his albums through and through or anything.
So, if you like Harry, or at least know ONE of his songs, I really think you’ll fall in love with him after seeing him perform in this video below. I mean… I did LOL! And here’s why in a video breakdown:
At 0:06 in, the very beginning of “As It Was” starts and Harry runs down these long giant stairs, which provokes even more excitement from the crowd. This move clearly shows that Harry is the rare kind of performer who doesn’t choreograph dances or moves; he just does what he wants in the moment. And yes, when you think about it, this is a rare type of performance. Because it’s so genuine in movement.
Later, at 2:21, he pauses and asks “Coachella, how you feelin’?” And everyone obviously ERUPTS in cheers and screams. I always love when artists address the audience directly like that. And then, at 2:30 Harry takes off his furry jacket to reveal a fully sequined, no sleeves jumpsuit with a deep V neck that shows off his chest tats. And of course, another eruption of screams.
My absolute favorite moment though is at 2:34. Harry throws his jacket in the air behind him and starts dancing in the cutest way I’ve ever seen. And it’s infectious!! Him jumping around and spinning makes you want to do the exact same thing watching it…and that’s my favorite thing about this whole performance.
Bravo, Harry. Can’t wait til I get to see it in person one day!!
Enjoy the whole video here 🙂
