  • The three who performed but didn't make it to the question round were the two operatic performances (District Of Columbia and Texas), which is interesting because both were great, but I don't think the judges were into opera, and Miss Nebraska, who did a jazz dance that was okay, but in which she spent the last 30 seconds whipping out a sparkly jacket and putting it on

      Hosted by Mario Lopez with help by Clinton Kelly and Jeannette Carlson, the Miss America Pageant 2010 aired on the TLC channel.

      Judges included Shawn Johnson, Vivica A. Fox, Rush Limbaugh, Dave Koz, and Brooke White, which is surprising. Her claim to fame is being in the top ten of American Idol. She’s a nice lady, but I’m not sure what she is doing as a judge. The judges were heavily on the entertainment sector this year. In fact, there’s usually a past crown winner judging and there wasn’t one this year, which seems very weird.

      America got to vote based on a special program that TLC ran the night before the event. Their top three were automatically part of the Top 15 Finalists. America’s Choices are three Miss Kentucky, Miss Oklahoma, and Miss Arkansas. Ultimately, Arkansas was out with the first cut,


      while Oklahoma survived long enough to strut in her gown, though she didn’t make the performing round.

      Wow — for the first time ever, after the top 14 finalists were called (the judges’ choices and America’s Top Three), the 39 remaining contestants voted for one more who will be the 15th contestant. What’s more, they weren’t told about this until right before they voted, during the telecast. Now that’s new, and I like the concept. It adds spontaneity and an extra zap of excitement to the proceedings. Their choice was Miss Oregon. She didn’t make the cut, though, but I’m sure she loved the honor and being able to participate in the swimsuit.

      The performance round was a mixture of talent. Hawaii did the hula, but in a more classical sense than what we normally see, Louisiana played a rousing number on the ...


      • piano, California did a ballet number, New Mexico sang “Somewhere” only with a horrible arrangement, Virginia sang as well and missed way too many notes, Tennessee had a great voice but she really overdid and over performed “I’ll Always Love You”, and Kentucky sang with a whopper of a voice but perhaps didn’t have enough emotion. The three who performed but didn’t make it to the question round were the two operatic performances (District Of Columbia and Texas), which is interesting because both were great, but I don’t think the judges were into opera, and Miss Nebraska, who did a jazz dance that was okay, but in which she spent the last 30 seconds whipping out a sparkly jacket and putting it on.

        For the question round, most did okay, except that Louisiana was a combination of emotional and incomplete, not really answering the question, and Kentucky’s

        answer didn’t impress me.

        As for the production of the show, it is a looser production nowadays than before. For example, Miss America 2009 announced her engagement. Her fiance proposed the evening before, and they even had him stand up. The camera angles used this year were fantastic. We got to see lots of different views of the contestants, from behind and all around. I was very impressed with that.

        I’m not crazy about Lopez, but the show moved along very well, so you hardly noticed him.

        The results? Miss Virginia, Caressa Cameron, in a yellow gown, was crowned Miss America, with California being the 1st runner up. Miss Virginia did her walk with Bert Parks singing the theme song, and you could actually hear him. I like that.

        Overall, one of the most pleasing pageants in a long time was this Miss America 2010 edition.
