Harry Styles has enough star power to make fans go weak in the knees.


His apparently dazzling effect on people was witnessed on the final episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden on April 27–when the Grammy-winning pop singer was a guest.

When Styles was introduced on the show, he was met by an enthusiastic fan on his right immediately after emerging from the curtain reveal at the top of the audience stands.

He greeted the fan with his irresistible smile and fist bump before making his way down through the cheering audience toward the studio stage.

But right after moving on from the fan, she appeared to faint.

Clips showing the exact moment went viral.

It looked like the fan recovered pretty quickly as she was seen seconds later cheering on comedic actor Will Ferrell, who was the next guest introduced on the show.

Twitter users found "the girl" was relatable.

After all the hubbub about Styles' knee-buckling effect on fans that caused the woman to seemingly faint, Cyndi H.–a Twitter user claiming to be her–set the record straight about what actually happened.

She wrote in the thread of Pop Crave's tweet:

"I simply gracefully melted into my seat after the man locked eyes w me."

Cyndi followed up with another tweet, writing:

“ppl thinking I was paid or a James corden writer …literally I f'king wISH IT WAS JUST MY INITIAL REACTION.”

She also said that she and Styles "locked eyes and I was SAT."

People expressed support after her physical reaction on TV was sensationalized online.

James Corden served as host of the Late Late Show for nine seasons since taking over on March 23, 2015.

He followed previous hosts, Tom Snyder–who was the variety program's first host in 1995–Craig Kilborn, and Craig Ferguson.

Once Styles took a seat with Ferrell beside him, Corden commented on how there were no other recurring guests he would rather close out his run of the show with than those two.

To which Styles responded:

"Can I just say that as a friend, I'm so incredibly proud of you for everything you've done."
"I know I remember when you decided to take doing the show and watching you do it has been incredibly inspiring to me."

The fellow Brit added that on a personal note, Corden has always been a "safe space" for the singer as a friend.

"I'm selfishly excited that you're coming home. But I'm so happy for you and I'm really really proud of you and I love you."
