    Default Miss America 2015

    Oh boy, so who watched this? Everyone has there undies in a bundle over Miss New York, now Miss America, having a "talent" of playing a red cup on stage and sincing Pharrell's Happy. Ummm..... Sandra Bullock did the whole "playing cups" thing in Miss Congeniality, but that was more of a MOCKERY of the pageant, plus hers was more entertaining because she jumped off stage and tackled a dude halfway through.

    Miss America talent has truly become a joke now. All the women who really did awesome talent, legit talent, and this cup player won. Part of me finds it funny, part of me finds it sad. Sad that it truly is a joke.

    She's really basic for a Miss.

    Back in the 1980's, when I was a wee Boogs. I thought they were glorious back then.

    A friend's daughter is Miss Arizona. Didn't even get a sniff at the 15 semi-finalist round. Don't know her at all, but I thought she was pretty enough to advance.

    Honestly, Jasmine Murray was Miss Mississippi, she was an American Idol finalist back in the day. Gorgeous African American and sang like nobody's business. I thought she would make top 5. @Brookie, my daughter & I both thought Arizona would make top 15. We are usually halfway decent picking the finalists.

    Read on some blog that the judges were looking for a relateable entertaining talent. To show that "anyone" can be Miss America. You don't need to be classically trained to enter the pageant for the scholarship money. On that basis, then I suppose it's great, but whatever. Of course now my daughter who is a Freshman in college looking at a shitload of student loan debt is proclaiming that SHE can now be Miss America if all it takes is playing cups LOL. In all honesty Miss NY at least carried the tune.

    It's not as important or as relevant as it used to be. IMO it happened after the Vanessa Williams scandal, but I don't think that had anything to do with its decline in popularity.

    Awww she was just on Live with Kelly & Michael and she said she picked the talent because her platform is Children's Miracle Network, and she can sit on the floor and entertain the kids in the hospital with her cups. Well, I guess that's kinda sweet. The kids can relate to that more than an opera singer I suppose.

    Jasmine should have won. (Little bit if local bias)

    She's no raving beauty, for sure. But Miss America has never really been about drop-dead gorgeousness (though many of its competitors are beautiful), but also about wits and brains and talent.

    I just read that she was a Planned Parethood volunteer. I suddenly like her more.
