What do you get when you mix Harry Styles, James Corden, 4 incredible episodes of late night television, and an album worth of new songs to pick performance numbers from? You get #LateLateStyles – the week-long live in where Harry joins James Corden on the Late Late Show.
James and Harry have been friends for a long time, something James mentioned in an interview earlier this month when he was asked about Harry joining his television show. Harry and Louis Tomlinson used to go to James’ home frequently, and he looked over both of them. In fact, he looked over all of the lads in One Direction and became a friend and confidant of them. It came as no surprise to fans of Harry when it was announced that he’d be joining James for this special week.

The entire episode was incredible, and Harry wasn’t the only guest on the series. Aaron Taylor-Johnson joined the show as well where he spoke about film projects and his chicken coop. Did we mention that he named them all after Kardashians? He joked about it but then he actually was able to name all of the sisters.
Harry spent time talking about making his album, the Apple Documentary ‘Behind the Album’, a bit about Dunkirk, and he mentioned that whole stage dive thing that happened in New York City that didn’t exactly go over that well.
So, get this, Harry wanted to stage dive and he felt that it was the right time. He said he thought it would feel like flying, but then, it happened. It wasn’t exactly flying, more like floating and then…well…a sinkhole. We don’t imagine he’d be trying that out again soon, but if you got tickets for his sold-out world tour, we recommend working out a bit beforehand. Just to be safe.
Harry, James, and Aaron also played James Corden’s game ‘Flinch’ where the guests stand behind glass and James tries to make them flinch. He added a British twist and had himself, Aaron, and Harry attempt to hold tea without spilling it as well. Aaron and Harry both seemed to jump out of their skin while James didn’t break a sweat.
The episode wrapped with Harry singing his debut solo single ‘Sign of the Times’ and singing it doesn’t feel like a proper explanation. He got on the stage like he’d been born to perform and with the note changes alongside his passion and confidence, Harry absolutely brought the house down. Fans in the audience and on social media were so impressed with him – and with good reason.
If you missed tonight’s episode, you’ve still got three more to go, so tune in this week and don’t forget carpool karaoke Thursday where Harry will help James get to work on time. It’ll be great.
