I really don’t see how anyone can beat Conan Osiris.
Usually, his beard looks like this:

But when Conan performs, he actually adds another, metal beard:
He LITERALLY double beards it. That is a high standard of beard dedication.
Is Sergey even in the contest this year? He released a song and then went on tour for his massively successful career in other places.
And I feel like Sergey’s beard is just as unobtrusive as he is. It’s well-trimmed. It’s kempt. It hints at a dangerous side without going so far as to actually be dangerous. It’s the carefully controlled beard of a carefully controlled man.
I wouldn’t underestimate this beard, but neither would I give the beard kudos for merely being a beard from a powerhouse nation.
WINNER Conan by a mile. His beard is free and unpredictable, something that doesn’t chance with the whims of fashion, while Sergey’s beard is there as a marketing decision.
But who would you vote for?
