WATCH: Harry Styles performs solo for the FIRST time on Saturday Night Live

Harry Styles has performed solo for the first time ever on Saturday Night Live.

The singer is the latest One Direction star to go solo, and chose to perform for the first time live on the hit US comedy show, which was guest hosted by Jimmy Fallon.

The 23-year-old performed his number one single, Sign Of The Times, and a new song, Ever Since New York - which fans believe is about his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift.

Harry's performances went down a hit with fans, and it was the first time in SNL's history that the show was broadcast simultaneously across all time zones in America.


Harry also poked fun at his new solo career as he impersonated Mick Jagger in a sketch based on Family Feud.


After host Steve Harvey (Kenan Thompson) congratulated Mick (Harry) on his solo material, he replied in a London accent, "Solo? Why would anyone in a successful band go solo? That is insane."

Harry was also shown dancing during the show's opening, which saw guest host Jimmy Fallon and Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers perform David Bowie's Let's Dance.


The singer, who rose to fame with One Direction on The X Factor, also featured in another sketch about a group of soldiers in the American Civil War.

The SNL episode also saw Alec Baldwin reprise his role as President Donald Trump, and Melissa McCarthy return as White House press secretary Sean Spicer following his controversial comments about the Holocaust.

Harry Styles' self-titled album is set for release on May 12.
