Earlier this year, Harry Styles became an honorary Australian when he brought out the one and only Daryl Braithwaite to perform his hit cover of Rickie Lee Jones's The Horses.
“It’s our last show in Australia, so it only felt right to do something a little bit special,” Styles told the audience in Sydney. “Please welcome, Mr Daryl Braithwaite!” You can check out the footage here.
