Calvin Harris admits he grew a beard so the Grammys would take him seriously

Try as he might, Calvin Harris can't seem to snag Producer of the Year at the Grammys so he tried growing a beard to be taken seriously.

Calvin Harris apparently grew a beard to be taken seriously. This past year he produced DJ Khaled's "Don't Quit" and his own project Funk Wav Bounced Vol. 1, but it wasn't enough. He didn't win the Grammy and lamented his loss on a Twitter rant. He said he tried growing the facial hair, but he still lost to the great Greg Kurstin.

Last year I grew a big ol beard in order to be taken seriously by the Grammys as a producer. It worked to an extent - my Producer of the Year nomination came through and I was happy the beard was performing as well as I had hoped...

He has now shaved his facial hair and will be starting a new 2018 with the support of his fans which he is very thankful for. He's still one of the more popular producers and will surely churn out some hits in the new year.
