Harry Styles threw away no time in fracturing a couple of jokes at his expense the second he hit the Saturday Night Live phase as the program’s host– and also he handled to supply a One Directions punchline instantly.
On Saturday night (Nov. 16), Styles bounded onto the Workshop 8H phase to deliver the opening monologue and began riffing on what he recognizes best: songs.
” I’m a really severe musician, as well as nothing claims major musician like speaking while playing the piano,” he said prior to strolling over to the instrument and also taking a seat. Styles accepted his inner lounge lizard and also smirked through a number of jokes (” You know, in Britain we play piano on the other side of the road”) before rolling with his previous achievements.

” I do not know if you’ve heard or otherwise,” he continued. “I’m not in a kid band anymore. I remain in a guy band. I was in a band called One Direction. Exactly how insane would it be if they were right here tonite ?!” He stopped and also smiled, and remained to tease the possibility for a beat. “I like those men. They’re my bros. Niall, Liam, Louie … Ringo.”
The target market nervously giggled in his significant pause prior to Styles chose to name-check a Beatle as opposed to Zayn Malik, who left the group a year before One Direction went on respite in 2016.
This is barely a shock for Directioners, as Designs and Malik haven’t exactly been the very best of pals. In a 2017 meeting, Malik described that they weren’t close, even when they were sharing a stage together: “To be sincere, I never actually spoke to Harry even when I remained in the band … So I really did not truly expect that much of a relationship with him when I left. And I haven’t [had one], to be sincere.”
Designs wrapped the little bit with a kindhearted stab at their former X Factir advisor also: “I’m just so grateful Simon Cowell expanded us in those test tubes.”
