I never watch the competition, but last night there was really nothing on t.v. that I wanted to see, so I decided to watch the pageant. Now I don't know if it's just me - but where is the talent in Miss New York, sitting on the floor singing, and using a Big Red Cup as a prop?? HUH????? Didn't the judges hear some wonderful voices in some contestants, or the genuine talent of playing musical instruments, the dancers, and of course the ventriloquist who I thought was absolutely charming. Yes - I know talent is only part of the score - but come on now.............what were they thinking?? I was floored when Miss Pennsylvania never even made it into the finals and was cut right away - she had a beautiful voice.
Gotta say - there must be some politics involved here.
