    This is really iconic. Not many of the current artists would have the confidence to go to The First Take. It´s THE ULTIMATE showcase. I am excited!

    This is stunning. Boyfriends is already a lovely song, but this just elevated its beauty. Well done everyone.💚

    I’m not updated with Harry Style’s latest songs, or any western songs for years now, since I switched to Japanese songs at the start of pandemic. So imagine my surprise when I saw Harry here at The First Take! It’s amazing, and he’s an amazing artist too.

      Same story for i listened to some k pop by bts but it didnt appealed to me but anime really changed me for last 1 and half years now i listened japanese songs atleast an hour a day with full volume. I was shocked to see harry styles a western singer on this channel.

  4. sunflower says:

    Conozco este canal y relamente no imaginaba que algún día Harry fuese invitado, su presentación me hizo sentir en las nubes♡♡

  5. Ananya Sharma says:

    this sounds EXACTLY like the studio version!!! props to the band and harry for pulling this off so gracefully.

  6. A M says:

    A lot of people seem to be confused as why Harry would be on TFT. It’s because his newest album ‘Harry’s House’ is a tribute to the Japanese pop icon Haruomi Hosono, who’s best known for leading electronic pioneers Yellow Magic Orchestra, and shaping the genre of City Pop. ‘Harry’s House’ is named after Haruomi Hosono album from the 70’s called ‘Hosono House’.

  7. Beverly Carr says:

    This is not a problem for Harry. His live performances are so good and there is no second chance and he doesn’t use auto tune or anything but his beautiful, natural voice. This is a beautiful song and they always do it perfectly live with just guitars.

  8. kay says:

    People saying this isn’t a different version…it is. The album does not have female harmonization or a portion that is a cappella. We just recognize this rendition because he’s performed this version live before and we’re used to it. For those who have only heard the album, this version is slightly different with the female harmonization/ a cappella.

    Beautiful rendition! Loved hearing his voice. Slightly wish the harmonization was softer but either way a wonderful performance!! Hopefully there is a second one. I went and watched other performances and thoroughly enjoyed finding new artists; I noticed they tend to do two songs on this channel. This is an awesome channel with an amazing idea of seeing the raw vocals of artists! Subscribed for more content 🙂

  9. accioloki says:

    his vocals this era so far has been immaculate. this literally sounds like the studio version.

  10. sadikshya says:

    Literally no difference cuz he never uses autotune or something. This is the proof he is real and his voice too. Love you so much H. 💚😭
