    Miss America Pageant

    I liked seeing the child videos on the wall behind for each of the performers. It lets us see that these girls have been on a stage for years. I used to think they just made something up to be in the pageant. But now I see. The pageant is the result of their childhood activities.

    I would have liked for Miss TN to sing Memories in English. That would have had more power.

    We viewers like to know what individuals are going to present. The way they haphazardly eliminated girls took away something from the viewers.

    EXCELLENT answers all

    Loved the evening wear. I am a sap. I like anything that looks like a wedding.

    Some of the girls need to think about posture (hello crowd) when walking their swimsuits out. Stop thinking about twisting their butts...cuz that just is not elegant...




    Love thee old timing singing at the end--man singing "here she is MISS AMERICA....I want some old things.there is so much change. I like it when there is some constancy.

    The last word isn't really important in situations when nobody is listening.

    Re: Miss America Pageant

    I usually don't watch Miss America any more - but there was nothing else on, and I wanted to take a quick look when they introduced all of the contestants. Then I realized that Miss Arizona is the daughter of someone I used to work with, so I ended up watching the whole thing. It's very different from what it used to be.
    • That process of just eliminating some of the contestants in the middle of the talent competition was really weird. One young lady seemed to be ignoring everything on stage and just listening to her music on her iPod during most of the talent competition. Then she ended up getting eliminated without even getting to sing. It was just odd to watch.
    • IMHO, the talent wasn't all that good. We've all been exposed to so many dancing critiques that we know to watch for finishing movements with the arms, hand extensions, etc. A couple of the singers were just dreadful, and I kept wanting to scream at the pianist to SIT UP!
    • Brooke Burke Charvet (sp?)? No thanks.
    • Mark Ballas and Kris Jenner as judges? Really? Wonder if Mark was wearing spats.

    All in all - a waste of a couple of hours.

    I don't like the elimination format. I thought Kris Jenner after the the girl answered the question had the duh look on her face as to what did she say. Then Chris H. kept telling the girls after the questions to go get changed. I think the Miss America Pageant has lost it's appeal.
    You don't have to attend every argument you are invited to.

    Re: Miss America Pageant

    I realize this is an old thread, but I wanted to see if anyone watched the pageant last night?

    I tuned in a few times and almost cracked up when I heard what Miss Wisconsin had to say! She invited the viewers to "COME AND SMELL OUR DAIRY AIR." (Say it out loud.) lol Check it out. I mean who thought that was appealing?

    Miss Wisconsin want us to smell her ‘dairy air,’ Twitter thinks it’s cheesy

    OMG! And then there was the winner's very confusing answer about whether or not Tom Brady cheated during Deflategate.

    I missed that comment.

    The young ladies sure were out there. I've never seen such a bunch enthusiastic and outgoing women. It was almost too much. Talked about hyped up. Man, they were off the charts.

    I didn't watch, but I heard that they finally apologized to Vanessa Williams for shaming her into resigning all those years ago. I thought that was nice.
    Seeking form amidst the void.

    But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.
