It's like 2011 all over again! 

Harry Styles took his fans back to the beginning of his career when he performed One Direction's very first hit, "What Makes You Beautiful," at Capital's Jingle Bell Ball 2019 at London's O2 Arena on Sunday. 

Styles paraded around the stage in a longsleevee jumpsuit, encouraging fans to belt out the words to the song, which was given a bit of a makeover. The new rendition of "What Makes You Beautiful" sounded more like the tracks from Styles' new album, Fine Line, than One Direction's pop hits. 

Check out his performance below. 

Styles wasn't the only 1D member at Jingle Bell Ball on Sunday. His old bandmate, Liam Payne was also at the concert -- and opened up about their reunion on Channel 4's Sunday Brunch. 

"I actually saw him for the first time in three years yesterday," Payne said of Styles. "We hadn't seen each other in a long, long time. It was really nice, he's still the same boy as when I left him, really sweet ... he's such a lovely lad." 

As for whether the band will get back together after their 2016 hiatus, Payne said it's a possibility. 

"I think at some point we will get back together. I think we will, for sure," he shared. 

"I don't know when that is yet but, all I know is there is at least two years while everyone's just released new music where you have to go and promo and do all of that," Payne added. "There are at least two years."
