Miss America Preliminary WInners in Review

Since Miss America has been "knocked on its sash" by TLC this year, fans agree that it's harder than ever to guess who will make the finals. Many feel that this year especially winning a Preliminary doesn't mean a thing, and that several of the winners will not make the Top 16 cut.
What do you think?


Miss Iowa- Talent

Diana Reed won Talent with and upbeat baton routine to Hairspray's "You Can't Stop the Beat."

Rhode Island- Swimsuit

It was said that Ashley Bickford's ballet en point was not technically proficient.


Miss Massachusetts- Talent

Valerie J. Amaral won Talent with her vocal rendition of Martina McBride's "Anyway."

Miss Michigan- Swimsuit

Kirsten Haglund received very positive reviews on her vocal presentation of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

Miss Connecticut- Talent

Dana Daunis bested her Talent flight with the contemporary vocal "Let Him Fly."

Miss Texas- Swimsuit

Reports were mixed about Molly Hazlett's jazz on pointe routine.


  1. Abby,
    I am sure that Erin might want to join you blogging tonight. How would she go about getting on?


  2. Hi Jenny!

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean...

    If she wants to quickly set up her own blog, I will gladly link it here for people to check out. She'd just need to go to

    Or, I'll be posting several entries throughout the pageant, so everyone can leave lots of comments along the way!
