Harry Styles will make his first television appearance as a solo artist on ‘Saturday Night Live’ on April 15, alongside Jimmy Fallon.
The 23-year-old singer will appear on the American sketch show on April 15 in what will be his first appearance on a television show since becoming a solo artist in the wake of his band One Direction taking an extended hiatus in 2015.
Harry will appear on the show alongside late night television host Jimmy Fallon, who announced the news on Tuesday (28.03.17) via his Twitter account.
Jimmy wrote: “So excited!!! A young heartthrob and Harry Styles will be on SNL together April 15th! #WhenHarryMetJimmy #FallonStylesSNL (sic)”
And ‘Saturday Night Live’ confirmed the British heartthrob’s appearance on the show as they also took to Twitter to express their excitement.
They wrote: “Excited to announce @jimmyfallon and @Harry_Styles will be in Studio 8H on April 15! #FallonStylesSNL (sic)”
As of the time of writing, Harry himself is yet to acknowledge the news via any of his social media accounts.
The news comes after it was revealed on Saturday (25.03.17) that the ‘History’ hitmaker would be unveiling his debut solo single on April 7.
A clip shown during the commercial break for ITV singing competition ‘The Voice UK’ shows the star, soaking wet, walking across a room in shadow before walking through a door bathed in light. Piano music can be heard playing in the background and “April 7” flashes up on screen at the end.
Harry’s announcement came after iHeartRadio DJ Elvis Duran revealed he had heard the single and said it would be released on April 7.
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Harry recorded his debut solo album in Jamaica.
His close pal, BBC Radio One DJ Nick Grimshaw, explained that Harry, 23, jetted out to the Caribbean island to lay down the songs for his record and joked that he expects it to be “awful reggae”.
Nick, 32, said: “He’s [Harry] worried I won’t like his new solo record.
“He recorded it in Jamaica so I’m praying it’s some awful white man reggae.”
