When the British singer accepted his award for British Single at The BRIT Awards last night, viewers couldn’t help but notice a change in his voice.

During his speech, Harry’s accent was, um, almost American-sounding as he thanked fans for their continued support.

“Thank you so much. I just continue to be baffled by moments like this. They make me more and more incredibly grateful to be able to get to do this job every day. I’m really happy and proud to be celebrating British music tonight,” Harry said onstage.

And people definitely noticed:

While I’m no linguistics expert, there’s definitely a difference in Harry’s voice from his younger days, when his Cheshire accent was a lot stronger.

Although Harry’s accent may be jarring to some fans, there’s plenty of explanations for his changing accent, like the increasing amount of time he spends in America.

It’s also possible that Harry’s been working with a dialect coach, particularly for his role in Don’t Worry Darling, in which he plays a 1950s businessman from California.

Whatever the reason for Harry’s recent accent, it definitely doesn’t change who he is as a person — so you do you, Harry!
