What a loss on Thursday morning in Minnesota, the death of famed singer and businessman Prince Rogers Nelson, known to zillions simply as "Prince" and later also by a symbol:
http://www.destinyman.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Prince-symbol.jpg

While people and the media mocked and teased Prince (his real first name) for using that symbol, the reason for it's use. After Prince's big fame and tremendous success for Warner Brothers Music Record Company (including being the arranger for the Warner Brothers' 1989 Batman movie), he was told that he could no longer use his name, Prince, in his future independent recording business.

He complained that Price was his real name and that he had rights to use it (much like Madonna's real first name is actually Madonna). After bitter fights with his over-controlling record label, Prince then began to use the moniker "The Artist Formerly Known as Prince", and his symbol creation for his later successful work and concert tours, as a form of protest and advocate that artists and musicians should have naming and creative rights to their work.

There are some memorable pageant moments that involve people or Prince indirectly with pageants.

*Last December, cable network FOX News aired a holiday show "Did you know that?" featuring their anchors Gretchen Carlson Close (Miss America 1989) and also Lauren Susan Green (Miss Minnesota 1984), both coincidentally former Minnesota pageant winners in the Miss America program.

Gushing, Lauren told anchor Bill O'Reilly that she had a slight crush for Price, when she and her cousins grew-up in the same Minneapolis area as Price. You can see that Prince comment about one minute into this film clip:
http://www.billoreilly.com/video?chartID=754&vid=307527820655140302


*Another Prince connection to pageants came in January 2007 when Miss Georgia 2006, Amanda Kozak used his upbeat song "Baby I'm a Star" for the talent portion of the Miss America pageant, where she later placed second runner-up to Oklahoma's Lauren Paige Nelson.

That was the second year when Miss America moved to January and also held in Las Vegas and televised on Country Music Television (CMT) cable. However, when CMT replayed the 2006 Miss America pageant telecast, the tap dance talent song for Amanda was changed due to some copyright issues. Any one remember what song they played during the two or three subsequent pageant repeat airings?

Knowing that the Miss America pageant would be repeated on CMT, why didn't the Miss America and/or Miss Georgia pageant make preparations to get copyright release to have that Prince song used more than just the live CMT telecast?

*One year on the CBS televised Miss Universe pageant, the Prince song "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" was used as the introduction to the Miss Universe evening gown competition? Anyone know the year? This song here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmqSi7lulMM


*Prince was involved with Denise Kartrina Matthews from Canada. Before Prince changed her name to Vanity (and was the inspiration for his hit movie and song "Purple Rain", she competed in pageants in Canada, which you can read about here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanity_(singer)

Sadly, less than two months after she died on February 15, 2016, her ex-boyfriend Prince died on April 21, 2016. Both were 57 years young.

Anyone know of other connections of Prince to pageants?? Other than it was Prince, back in 1988 who wrote the song "Donald Trump (Black Version), shown here but there is no indication that former Miss Universe/Miss USA pageant owner Donald Trump will use it as a presidential campaign theme song!!:
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/prince-once-wrote-a-song-called-donald-trump-black-version/


For those who wish to watch the 1996 Oprah Winfrey interview of Prince, the one-hour program will air later tonight, Saturday at 8 pm Eastern/7:00 pm Central time on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), check local listings for channel number.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/prince-oprah-show-interview_us_57191e7be4b0d912d5fdee1b

Also, the famed 1984 movie "Purple Rain" which features hit songs "Purple Rain", "Baby I'm A Star" and also "Jungle Love", will re-air on MTV and VH-1 cable networks this weekend.

The air times are....airing now at 4:30 pm Eastern/3:30 pm Central time on VH-1, then later tonight at 9 pm Eastern/8:00 pm Central on MTV...followed by 11:30 pm/10:30 pm on VH-1, and on Sunday, April 24 at 1 pm/Noon on VH-1; 9 pm/8 pm on VH-1....and final Purple Rain showing at 11 pm/10 pm Sunday evening on MTV.

Long live the memory of Prince Rogers Nelson. Anyone else know of other pageant connections to Prince??

What a loss yesterday morning in Minnesota, the death of famed singer and businessman Prince Rogers Nelson, known to zillions as simply "Prince" and by a symbol.

I recall Miss Georgia 2005, Amanda Kozak used his song
"Baby I'm a Star" for the talent portion of the Miss America pageant, where she later placed second runner-up.

That was the year when Miss America moved to January in Las Vegas and televised on CMT cable. However, when they replayed the pageant telecast the talent song for Amanda was changed due to come copyright issues. Any one remember this and know what happened why they could not prepare for this possibility of Amanda doing her dance talent on tv?

Also, what year was the Prince song "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" was used just before the televised Miss Universe evening gown competition? Anyone know the year? This song here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmqSi7lulMM

Any other Prince-related pageant items to mention?

Hi gang,

Thanks for your patience! I've started setting up the RTMA Board (www.voy.com/241665/). There are threads for all pageants through the end of May, and I'll start working on June and July soon.

Here's how it works:

Post your choice for who you think will win each state pageant. You get ONE choice; you can't change your vote once the prelim winners have been announced. (Note: This has nothing to do with People's Choice. Friends and family members of contestants, please don't vote incessantly for your relative or friend if you're not participating in the contest as a whole, because it has no bearing on the outcome of the actual pageant. I will delete multiple votes for the same contestant from the same IP address.)

If your choice wins the state title, you get 10 points.

If your choice finishes 1st RU, you get 5 points.

If your choice finishes 2nd RU, you get 2 points.

And new this year, to reward those brave enough to make predictions before prelims, if you pick the winner before preliminaries start, you'll get 5 additional bonus points.

You can participate if you've never done so before. Just pick a user name/handle and use it EVERY TIME. Please don't pick something generic like "MA Fan" or "MAO Fan" or something like that--too many people pick the same ones.

Happy predicting!! Hope to see an even better turnout this year!!
