Award season continues with the Brit Awards that took place just a couple of days ago.
Calvin Harris finally won two titles, which he definitely deserves. You know what they say: fifteenth time's a charm.
We all know Harris for his legendary collaborations, such as "We Found Love" which she wrote together with Rihanna. Never forget.
But it was "One Kiss" that won him a Brit this year. To celebrate it, Harris spent more than $100,000 on his and Dua Lipa's performance at the Brit Awards on Wednesday.
But that's not what shocked viewers that night. Just hours after the show, social media was flooded with people sharing two surprising facts they had noticed for the first time about the DJ.
They gushed about the impressive change in his looks over the past decade, and his... voice. That's right.
Calvin Harris and The 1975 were the lead winning acts at the 2019 Brit awards

They filmed a video in which they replicated a scene from their music video “Apeshit", posing in front of a portrait of “Queen Meghan Markle."It was meant to be “an emphatic show of support" for Meghan who’s been dealing with so much unwanted attention from the press lately.
Calvin Harris is one of the most-paid DJs in the world.

Yet, somehow, he hasn't had much success at the Brit Awards.

He was presented by Jack Whitehall, and followed Dua Lipa, Sam Smith, and Rag’n’Bone Man's performance.

Calvin Harris' career started with a shelf-stacker's job at Marks & Spencer. His first Top 10 hit didn't happen until 2006, when he was 25.The Guardian says, Calvin's had 31 solo Top 40 hits, out of which 8 were No. 1's. These included "One Kiss," of course.
Even though he won a Brit for his production talents, he's actually a songwriter and performer too.The Sun reports, he spent over $100,000 on the dancing animals alone.
He wanted to have a dancing crab and a dragon (similar to those in the "One Kiss" music video) on-stage that night, even though he was only going to spend around 4 minutes up there.
But that's not all.
Two things shocked viewers and fans that night.
Some folk wish for money, fame or world peace I wish for a transformation like Calvin Harris https://t.co/MHz77gnHMM— Gareth Waugh (@Gareth Waugh)1550698849.0

Calvin Harris had the ultimate glo up tho didn’t he. 😍😍 https://t.co/G39nfPBXPe— Chlo ✨ (@Chlo ✨)1550698372.0
Rebecca Chase said, "I wonder if anyone saw the first video of Calvin Harris and didn’t know who it was."
Have to say, Calvin Harris has got to be the greatest glow up of all time. #BRITs https://t.co/wnBtzTmQGk— Becca West (@Becca West)1550698953.0
What happened? How?The Tab investigated how come he went “from greasy mop head, Topman-esque 2000s boy, to a finely chiselled, model good looking wife-me-up-right-now-I'm-done man."
Turns out, Calvin's break-through moment happened in 2012.
But how did Calvin Harris glow up like that #BRITS2019 https://t.co/ZBl3cA483v— kiks (@kiks)1550698444.0
Mens Fashion Magazine looked at the transformation closer.And they figured out what made Harris' change seem so "over-night" and what it was that he did wrong all those “before" years, and what was right in the “after."
What did he do wrong?

But it wasn't an over-night transformation.
The second shocker on the Brit Awards night was... the fact that Calvin Harris is Scottish.

HOW DOES CALVIN HARRIS STILL SOUND SO SCOTTISH YET LOOK SO VEGAS?!?! #Brits— Grazia UK (@Grazia UK)1550698078.0
Die-hard Calvin fans, who knew he is a Scot, found people's reactions hilarious.
Meanwhile, some fans were reminded of the curious fact.
But they also noticed that he’s now got a bit of a mid-Atlantic sound going on too.
So the secret is finally out: Calvin Harris is Scottish.
Oh, and here's another secret: Calvin Harris is not his real name.
All these people saying they didn’t expect Calvin Harris to be Scottish. Well plot twist he’s not even called Calvin Harris #BRITS2019— Meg x (@Meg x)1550699617.0
