Former One Direction star Harry Styles made a triumphant return to the show that spawned his career on Saturday night with his first solo performance on The X Factor – and it’s safe to say viewers were impressed.

He even gained a few fans.

Strutting around the stage in a purple flared one-piece as he performed his new single Kiwi, Harry even reminded people of a certain veteran rock star…
It was an unreal performance. I'm a big rock fan but thought Harry Styles was class just then. Young Mick Jagger in the making. #XFactor

They weren’t the only one.

And there were more.

It wasn’t just Jagger though…
Harry Styles, you're a natural, lad. David Bowie would've been proud of that performance #xfactor

Why is Harry Styles pretending he's the offspring of Mick Jagger and David Bowie? All while dressed as The Joker? Help? #XFactor

Of course, there’s one way to decide for yourself whether Harry is more Jagger or Bowie (or Joker) – watch it.
The X Factor continues on Sunday night on ITV at 7:25pm
