Over the past few years, Lizzo and Harry Styles have become the besties we never knew we needed.
The two advocates for self-love and acceptance have been paying tribute to each other with covers of their songs, and surprise performances together, and fans on Twitter have affectionately given the unlikely duo the nickname Hizzo.
See below for all the times #Hizzo were the most adorable BFFs you ever did see.
Harry's "Juice" Cover
Our first glimpse of Hizzo all started when Styles visited the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge, where he covered Lizzo’s smash hit, “Juice.” “She’s exactly what you want an artist to be… which is yourself,” he explained of the “Truth Hurts” songstress during the interview.
Style’s big smile while he sang the bridge (“Somebody come get your man/I think he got lost in my DMs”) soon spread on Twitter like wildfire, and the cover caught Lizzo’s attention. “You know what this means right….?” she tweeted with a wink face, implying that she’d be down to collaborate on a remix of the tune.

Two months after the BBC cover, Styles flew down to Miami during Super Bowl weekend to hop onstage with Lizzo during her performance at the SiriusXM and Pandora Super Bowl Opening Drive Super Concert Series in Miami. The duo, of course, performed “Juice” together.
Lizzo's "Adore You" Cover
It was time for Lizzo to return the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge favor. The singer appeared on the show and covered Styles’ “Adore You” off his recent album Fine Line. “My favorite British import would be Harry Styles,” she joked during the fan Q&A portion of the interview. “I’ve been listening to the entire album, Fine Line is my jam. I listen to it in the morning, on the plane, so I already sing the songs, and now I get to do it with a live band my way.”
Lizzo added a fun little twist to her performance, gushing over the One Direction crooner by switching out the “Oh, honey” before the chorus to “Oh, Harry.”

BRITs Hang Out
In February 2020, Styles and Lizzo attended the BRIT Awards, and were seated at tables next to each other, but sitting back-to-back. At one particularly sweet moment in the night, Lizzo turned around and tapped Styles, and the two held hands as Harry rested his head on his new bestie.
During his headlining set at weekend two of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Styles brought out Lizzo to perform a dazzling cover of Gloria Gaynor’s 1978 disco anthem “I Will Survive” and a lively rendition of One Direction‘s popular “What Makes You Beautiful.” Watch the duets via TMZ.
“Proud of you @harrystyles. Thank u for having me,” Lizzo captioned an overjoyed selfie of herself alongside Styles on Instagram.
She added in a second post, “Thanks @coachella … last night was amazing— @harrystyles is a treasure, gods gift to rock n roll, the light that comes from him is real and infinite.. he makes being on stage in front of hundreds n thousands easy, cus it’s w a friend. His team is incredible— and baby them Gucci coats….?!?? Thank you H, like u said ‘until next time.’”
Lizzo Raves Over ‘Harry’s House'
The “About Damn Time” singer raved about her fellow pop star’s third studio album, Harry’s House on an Instagram livestream. “[Harry] put his… Harrussy,” she said to more than 8,000 viewers, making herself crack up before she could finish the sentence.
“He put the whole Harrussy into that album,” she continued. “I love his new album.”
Harry Sends Lizzo Flowers
In July 2022, Lizzo showed off a massive, colorful bouquet of flower sent to her by the “Late Night Talking” singer in celebration of her Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 single “About Damn Time.”
“Yall harry got me flowers congratulating me on about damn time going #1 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭,” Lizzo wrote alongside a TikTok clip in which she thanks Harry and stops to smell the roses after “Damn” replaced his single, “As It Was,” atop the Hot 100 chart.

Lizzo Reveals She'd Choose Harry to Take Care of Her Over Cardi B
One of the very first questions during an Elle UK AMA was, “Who would you trust more to look after you on a night out — Cardi B or Harry Styles?” and the Lizzo didn’t hesitate to choose between her “Rumors” collaborator and the former One Direction-er.
“So the funny part is, is when y’all were asking me, I thought about Harry,” she confessed. “I’m gonna say Mr. Harry Styles, only because that’s actually happened. And Harry stays really calm under pressure. And he turn up real chill-like, you know what I’m saying? So I think he would be able to keep me together while everything’s falling apart.”
Lizzo also revealed what Styles smells like. “Harry smells very good; he smell like soap!” she said emphatically. “Whatever soap he uses, it smells like that. Like, it’s not a cologne or a deodorant thing, it’s very, like, whatever soap he showers in. … Every time I see him, I’ll be like, [inhales] “‘You smell like soap!’ ‘Cause he really do, he smell fresh and clean.”

Hanging Out in Chicago
The BFFs’ tours both brought them to Chicago in October 2022, which was the perfect opportunity to reconnect.
Lizzo attended Styles’ Love On Tour and spent some time hand-in-hand with her friend backstage. She shared a couple photos of their happy meeting on Twitter, writing, “I had so much fun w Harry yesterday.”
The “As It Was” singer was captured on camera beaming and excitedly clapping for Lizzo when her name was called for record of the year, which she won for her Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit “About Damn Time.” The feat made Lizzo the first Black woman since Whitney Houston in 1994 to win the award, something she later pointed out and celebrated on Instagram.
And when Styles was announced the winner of album of the year for Harry’s House, the “Truth Hurts” musician/flute player extraordinaire could be seen holding up her own phone to record her pal as he made his way to the stage, stopping on his way up to give her a huge hug.
