  • Dominique says:

    But apparently no lack of self-confidence.

  • Jevgeniy says:

    She’s got it, yeah

  • Christy says:

    Miss Georgia, who won, singing Tu Tu Piccolo Iddio. Yes, there are issues, but to choose this aria on Miss America? That’s someone who knows and loves opera. Apparently she’s majoring in Vocal Performance and also interested in Broadway.

    Past winner at NATS.


  • Az Opera Fan says:

    Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode…

    • Helen says:

      Yes, indeed this could be right out of a Seinfeld episode.The only problem is that in the USA nowadays, it is a very fine and blurred line that separates fiction, including science fiction and pure horror, from reality and more often than not, fiction would be preferable.

    • da96103 says:

      Which one? The one that Elaine danced and thought she was really good?

      • Az Opera Fan says:

        The episode where Kramer is dealing with a beauty contestant whose act is some pigeons, which are killed by Seinfeld and George. She still has to do something so goes on stage and sings, even though she’s never sung before – “It’s a most unusual day….”

  • Mark says:

    Gretchen Carlson, Miss America 1989, played the violin (and was quite good)

  • Alvaro says:

    Someone will invent AUTOTUNE for the violin…then BOOM, the profession is over.

  • Jorge Grundman says:

    Seems that the ears do not need to be beauty to won….

  • Charlotte says:

    Be thankful for hollywood tape

  • da96103 says:

    You guys have no clue. The best classical music performance in a beauty pageant is this one.

    This 4th runner up of Miss Texas is better than Argerich, Yuja Wang and Khatia Bunitshvili put together.
