Harry Styles and Lizzo duet on One Direction hit at Coachella

Harry Styles paid tribute to his One Direction past with the help of friend and special guest Lizzo as he opened the second weekend of the Coachella festival.

The pop stars took to the stage together during Styles’ headlining set at the US festival on Friday, wearing matching fur coats and drawing cheers from their fans.

After performing Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” the pair treated fans to a rendition of Styles’ former boy band hit “What Makes You Beautiful.”

It comes after the singer introduced Canadian country star Shania Twain to help him with his set during the first weekend of the festival.

Styles delivered an electrifying performance on Friday, doing laps around the main stage and blowing kisses to the crowd.

Dressed in a silver and red sequined vest and trousers, he performed favorites like Golden and Watermelon Sugar as well as new material, and only played Boyfriends live for the second time.

Fireworks lit up the skies over the Colorado desert as Styles finished with Sign Of The Times, telling the audience it was a “privilege” to play the festival after two years of Covid-related delays.

“Life is about moments and I won’t forget this one,” he said.

But Lizzo wasn’t the night’s only surprise appearance on the Coachella bill.

Kendrick Lamar also delighted fans by joining his cousin and fellow rapper Baby Keem for a performance of Family Ties before helping to wrap up the set with a performance by Vent.

It comes days after Lamar announced that his forthcoming fifth studio album, titled Mr Morale & The Big Steppers, will be released on May 13.

Several other British acts performed on the second Friday of the world-famous Southern California music festival, including rapper Slowthai and Bristol-based rockers Idles.

Idles guitarist Mark Bowen told the PA news agency it was a “blessing” to play Coachella and the band enjoyed the challenge of being “underdogs” at the festival.

On Saturday, Oscar-winning pop sensation Billie Eilish will once again headline the main stage.

Electronic supergroup Swedish House Mafia are set to team up with The Weeknd on Sunday after US rapper Kanye West quit the slot.

The Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival takes place in the Southern California city of Indio, about 200 kilometers east of Los Angeles.
