Subject: The Bets Talents This Year


Author:

Date Posted: 23:11:08 08/18/15 Tue

I have made a list of ten contestants who I believe have strong talents - not that I've seen any of them, but based on the discussions on this board. I'd like feedback on the list - feedback on these 10 talents - and names of other contestants who are really strong in talent (i.e., capable of a prelim win or a NFT).

Here goes:

Miss Alabama, Meg McGuffin
Miss Georgia, Betty Cantrell
Miss Indiana, Morgan Jackson
Miss Kansas, Hannah Wagner
Miss Mississippi, Hannah Roberts
Miss North Carolina, Kate Peacock
Miss Pennsylvania, Ashley Schmider
Miss South Carolina, Daja Dial
Miss Utah, Krissia Beatty
Miss Wisconsin, Rosalie Smith

Also, if anyone knows of any talent performances online for any of the contestants, I'd appreciate the links. I plan to search YouTube by contestant name, but I'm stumped as to where else I might find talent videos at this point.

Thanks for your input!

Subject: With a few minor adjustments I hope the OP won't be angry about, I thought this comment was so great it deserved to be reposted: "...I competed in the 90s. I started out in 94 and ended in 2000. When I started at 17, I looked up to the older girls and aspired to be like them. Let me tell you, they really weren't relatable. They were someone better than I thought I could be. Keeping with the system, I did better myself and became that type of role model to the next group coming in. Nowadays, the people they are crowing is so random. It starts at the local level when you see someone totally disheveled crowned over very well put together girls.There seems to be no clear idea or direction as to what any given panel of judges is looking for. MAO has lost their way all the way down to the local level but I still ❤️ them."

Subject: Nick Jonas to be on Miss America Telecast Selecting the Music

Date Posted: 12:34:13 08/26/15 Wed

Nick Jonas is loving Atlantic City this summer.
Jonas, formerly of the Jonas Brothers and a current pop recording star, will be the music curator for the live broadcast of the Miss America competition on Sept. 13. The event will be shown on ABC, starting at 9 p.m.

What is a music curator, you ask? According to a release by the Miss America Organization, Jonas will select the music to accompany the swimsuit and evening gown competitions, as well as provide live commentary on the melodious picks.

The lifestyle and fitness in swimsuit portion will feature the top 15 contestants, whittled down from this year's 52 women. The evening wear portion will only be done with the top 12 contestants.

Jonas's stint with the competition will come about a month after his performance on the Atlantic City beaches. He joined Maroon 5 and Matt McAndrew to put on the first beach concert of the summer, which attracted about 50,000 to the sand.

He will join several celebrities for the live broadcast. Brett Eldredge, Taya Kyle, Kevin O'Leary, Amy Purdy and Zendaya will make up five of the seven spots on the celebrity judging panel. "The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison will emcee the event.

More talent and judges, including Harrison's co-host, will be announced in the coming weeks, according to the statement by the Miss America Organization.

Subject: Comments from Judge Amy Purdy on what she is looking for in the next Miss America

NEW YORK – At only 19 years old, Amy Purdy lost her legs due to complications from meningitis but that did not stop her from becoming a Paralympic snowboarder, a “Dancing with the Stars” contestant, a best-selling author, and now, a judge at the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City on September 13th.

FOX411: You’re judging Miss America this year -- what qualities are you looking for in the next winner?

Amy Purdy: I’m really interested in what they do as far as giving back and the amount of work they have to do and the amount of philanthropy. I’m very interested in these women and what their backgrounds are and what they are passionate about. Also, their talents, that’s something they work towards their entire lives.


FOX411: Do you think pageants like Miss America are becoming passe or are they evolving to fit the woman of today?

Purdy: I think they’re keeping up pretty good. When you can really learn what these women do and that it doesn’t have to do with just beauty, it takes it away from being just a beauty pageant and more of "look what these women have done, look what they’ve accomplished," and they’re incredible role models.


FOX411: Is it time we get rid of the swimsuit portion of the competition?

Purdy: I liked watching the bathing suit part of it and what they wear and how beautiful they are. I think it has to do with how they take care of themselves and that they are healthy, but personally I like to see a healthy woman; somebody who works out who has muscle. I personally don’t want to see somebody who is really thin, overly thin. But I’m thin myself, sometimes that’s just natural as well, so I just want to see healthy, strong women.
