Eurovision Winner Conchita Wurst Discusses Why She Wears a Beard

Posted on May 16, 2014

British talk show host chatted with Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst (Tom Neuwirth) about her big win and how her drag persona is causing such a ruckus. Graham asks Conchita (who identifies as a she while in drag) why she went with the beard. Conchita says she was always different growing up and never fit in and it "wasn't a lot of fun." She wanted to stand out and make her own rules and just feels really comfortable in a beard. She says she needs to write more songs for her next album as she wants to win a Grammy some day. The other guests are Kirsten Dunst, writer and comedienne Dawn French and survival expert Bear Grylls. Take a look:
