Harry Styles' "Sign Of The Times" Review
Harry Styles delivers the best single from a One Direction member to date.

As host of Saturday Night Live‘s April 15 episode, Jimmy Fallon ditched the traditional monologue altogether. Instead, he launched into a spirited musical tribute to David Bowie, the late artist who The Tonight Show host has impersonated for years (and years, and years).

Joining Jimmy was Nile Rodgers, who just received an award from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, for contributions that included what they’d perform that night: “Let’s Dance.” A slew of backup dancers, along with SNL musical guest Harry Stylesjoined in on the fun.

The vibe was more Broadway than what the avant-garde Bowie, a frequent SNL performer, had done at 30 Rock himself. Yet the sight of a beaming Nile Rodgers alone was worth staying up til almost midnight. Watch below.
