Many of music’s biggest stars attended the 65th Grammy Awards at the weekend and Worcestershire-born Harry Styles took home the top prize.

The 29-year-old singer won album of the year for his third studio album, Harry’s House.

Styles said he feels that his Grammy success is validation that he’s “on the right path” with his music.

Speaking in the winner’s room after the ceremony, Styles said he was “overwhelmed” but “so grateful” to receive the award, and that the album had been “for [his] friends”.

“I think we’re overwhelmed at the moment, I definitely wasn’t expecting to get this,” he told the PA news agency.

“I think being nominated for stuff like this kind of feels like the winning part, being recognised by your peers.

“It’s obviously incredibly nice to receive this, I don’t think it’s the reason any of us in the room do it, but I’m so grateful they thought our album was worthy of it.”

He continued: “I think more than anything it just kind of feels like validation you’re on the right path in choosing, when we get in the studio and just make the music we want to make.

“It feels really nice to feel like ‘oh that is the right thing to do’ and it’s crazy. I’m really proud of everyone who made the album.

“I will continue to say that this one was for my friends.”

The top gong was presented to Styles by a superfan who had been brought up on stage by Grammys host Trevor Noah.

Styles embraced the fan as he accepted the award.

This wasn’t the singer’s only award on the night though as he also won the Grammy for the best pop vocal album.

He also took to the stage to perform his hit song ‘As It Was’ while wearing a long tasselled silver shirt with matching trousers which shimmered during his performance.

Styles was joined by dancers for a neatly choreographed routine on a separate rotating stage piece, similar to the song’s music video.

As It Was also earned nominations for both song of the year and record of the year, but lost out to Bonnie Raitt and Lizzo respectively.
