    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Re: Miss America Pageant

    Did anyone else watch this year's pageant?

    We had the bad wordplay again (not as bad as dairy air though! MinneSNOWta, haha), weird elimination process again, and lots of bad talent. I guess when you've let red cup playing win, that sets the bar pretty low, and girls don't even need to try to be good at anything really. So much for the weighted scores. Gabby must have been laughing inside at all the bad jumps/twirls/twists! And poor Ciara having to listen to the awful singing with a straight face because the camera would come to her every so often! She could not have been impressed.

    Mark Cuban licking his lips while watching the eventual winner was quite horrifying, as were the non-answers given to all the unfair political final questions. What do you think of Hillary? The wall? Trump?

    I can't even tell you what the winner did for her talent, because she was so underwhelming all evening I barely noticed her. There wasn't anything wrong with her, but I paid very little attention to her. All I can recall is that she's into black evening gowns with no crystals or jewels - she's apparently against glitter, because she was very proud that there wasn't one rhinestone on her dress at all. (They were all loaded up on her earrings!)

    NY did a nice job, and even almost answered her question. I thought she could've taken the title, but instead she got 2nd and Miss AR won. Betty, last year's winner, could really sing, and seemed to do a great job in the role. Big shoes to fill for little Savvy!

    I was flipping between channels from 10-11 pm, so I only got to see the top 10 or so sitting down. I thought the elimination was very odd. I was impressed with the baton twirler. I know nothing about dance, so all of the dancers seemed pretty good to me. The singing, though, oy! I did think Miss NY did a very good job singing "Sway" and her response to the judge's question was pretty decent as well. A lot of the responses were mostly gibberish. FWIW, I think they should all be in a sound controlled booth and each contestant should get the same question. I think that's the most fair.
    I'm trying to remember what Miss Arkansas's talent was but can't remember. All I remember thinking is man, she is one old-looking woman! Of the group that remained, I thought SC was the prettiest. There may have been others prettier, but as I said, I tuned in very late.
