Harry Styles returned to Saturday Night Live after years of iconic appearances.

Harry Styles made the ultimate comeback on Saturday Night Live and this time he was on ‘double duty’, meaning he was given the honour of performing and hosting the show, which is a rare opportunity.

In his latest appearance, the One Direction star showed love to his band members, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, calling them his 'brothers'.

However, he then went on to shade Zayn Malik in the comedy sketch, by referring to the 'Flames' singer as Ringo - the first member to leave The Beatles.

He still managed to impress fans with his skits throughout the night, and he finished off with two amazing performances.

It was the first time Haz performed 'Lights Up' live, and he debuted his new track, 'Watermelon Sugar', which we still have on repeat.

Fans were stanning hard and took to Twitter to praise his successful show, with comedian Matt Bellassai writing: "Make harry styles a permanent SNL cast member or I riot."

"Ok but Harry Styles did the damn thing on SNL. best host/musical performer I’ve seen in a minute," added singer, Kira Kosarin.

It’s not very common for stars to be invited on the show to perform as well as host, but obviously the hitmaker has proven himself as an entertaining asset to the SNL cast.

Although 2019 saw his first double duty, the 25 year old has starred on the American programme before and had some hilarious moments.

After a successful highly-anticipated comeback, let’s take a look back at Harry's best SNL moments...


Hazza made his debut on the show in 2012 alongside the rest of One Direction.

They joined Kenan and actress Sofia Vergara for the ‘Manuel Oritz Show’ sketch, where they dressed up with wigs and moustaches, dancing around for the hilarious skit.

Harry tweeted after the show, saying: "Thank you so much @nbcsnl for having us. That was a lot of fun and we’ll never forget it. X."

Joining him, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan performed ‘Night Changes’ together.

They also appeared in a hilarious sketch with FRIENDS actor, Paul Rudd, about a 1D concert line, with the comedian playing one of their biggest fans.

After the show, he tweeted: “A massive thank you to @nbcsnl for having us back last night. It was a lot of fun. And now I fancy Paul Rudd.”

In their final appearance together on SNL before going on a hiatus, the boys took part in the ‘Girlfriends Talk Show’ skit with actress, Amy Adams, and danced around while dressed up in tracksuits.

Fans were quick to spot how much the band had grown up over the years, with one writing: “I just saw one direction when they were on SNL back in 2012 & I cannot believe how much they have grown. MA MF BABIES.”

Back to prove his humour, Harry performed as a Civil War soldier who sang along with the rest of the cast.

Despite his slight wardrobe malfunction of his fake beard hanging off his face, fans were focused on his funny sketch.

One wrote: “how can y’all be focusing on harry’s beard malfunction when he’s out here giving us FIRE vocals??? [sic]”

“Harry’s jawline so sharp it was cutting right through that beard until it started falling off,” added another.

It’s safe to say his fans were in awe that night, after he appeared in the hilarious time-travel edition of ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ and performed to of his solo tracks, ‘Sign Of The Times’ and ‘Ever Since New York’.

His most recent appearance on SNL was in 2018 when he impersonated Mick Jagger and it was uncanny.

During the skit, Harry as Mick, was asked about going solo, to which he jokingly replied: “Solo? Why would anyone in a successful band go solo? That is insane.”

Clearly it was one of his most iconic moments so far, as SNL recently used the clip of him dancing like Mick and captioned it: “When you realise we’re just one week away from Harry Styles double duty.”

Fans are hoping a bit of the Rolling Stones singer will come out of Haz again in his returning act, with one tweeting: “Harry styles’ mick jagger impression will forever be iconic cant wait to get another serve like this one.”

“If Harry Styles doesn’t play Mick Jagger again on SNL this weekend the what’s the point. #HarryOnSNL.”

We cannot wait to see what the absolute babe has in store for fans this time!
