“I want to thank my mum for signing me up for ‘X Factor’ without telling me, so I literally wouldn’t be here without you,” Styles shared.
He also referenced how important One Direction had been to his subsequent solo career, and gave a special shoutout to fellow 1D members Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik.
“I want to thank Niall, Louis, Liam and Zayn because I wouldn’t be here without you either. Thank you so much,” Styles continued.
“I’m really, really grateful for this, and I’m very aware of my privilege up here tonight,” Styles concluded.
