Monday found The Voice going into its first night of the knockout round, but Twitter was fixated on something else: Adam Levine's facial hair. After rocking a mountain man beard earlier this season, tonight he sported a more fresh-faced look (although not totally devoid of scruff), and the Twitter reaction was mixed. Let's take a look at Adam's various bearded and non-bearded incarnations.
1. Scruffy Adam
This is the Adam we saw tonight. Notice the slight 5:00 shadow, pairing nicely with the plaid shirt for a look that's either Brooklyn Cool or too-lazy-to-really-shave, depending on your point of view.
Who gave Adam Levine permission to shave his beard bc it clearly wasn't me- Sarah♬ (@Hey_There_Sarah) October 29, 2013
So happy Adam got rid of the beard. #sigh- Natalia (@nterfa) October 29, 2013
Adam finally got rid of that beard and now he needs to get rid of that shirt #VoiceKnockouts- KRMathison (@ChigleChic) October 29, 2013
2. Beardy Adam
Woah, is that the Maroon Five singer or a guy from ZZ Top? Just kidding. Still, Adam's beard has reached some impressively grungy heights (er, lengths?) over the years, leading one user to comment:
Adam Levine with a beard looks like an oddly attractive version of Abraham Lincoln and that makes me uncomfortable- Olivia (@oliviaaaelllen) October 22, 2013
We'll let you be the judge of that one.
3. Really Beardy Adam
Okay, this is just out of control. If you squint hard enough I'm pretty sure you can see small forest creatures living in there. No more of this, Adam. No more of this.
Whichever way you slice it (or, uh, shave it) one thing is for certain: contestants on The Voice may come and go, but Adam Levine's facial hair is forever. Which one's YOUR favorite?
