The performance came as part of SiriusXM and Pandora’s Opening Drive Super Concert Series. Fan footage captured the moment Styles came out, showing the crowd going completely bonkers when the Cuz I Love You singer welcomed out the former One Direction member.
Styles clearly enjoys “Juice”. As happened when he covered the song on BBC Radio 1, he couldn’t stop flashing an extra-pulpy smile while sharing Lizzo’s stage. During their duet, the two pop stars danced flirtatiously, linking hands at the end in in a show of pure exuberance. Check out the various fan-shot videos of the surprise collaboration below.
Earlier in the concert, Lizzo told the story of how her high school was chosen to attend the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show with Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson. Now 16 years older, she spoke about what it meant for her to be apart of the official Super Bowl festivities (via Daily Mail):
“Our high school got selected to be in the crowd on the field during Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson… Now here I am performing for the Super Bowl. I got a song with Justin Timberlake. And Janet Jackson likes my music. A lot can happen in a lifetime.”
If you happen to be in Miami, you can catch Lizzo and Styles again tonight performing at a different corporate sponsored Super Bowl event, the Pepsi Party. This time Styles will be co-headlining instead of a surprise guest, but fingers crosswed the two will once again share the stage. Get tickets to that and all of Harry Styles concerts here, while Lizzo tickets can be found over yonder.
