    “Miss New York Crowned Miss New York 2015…” That is the worst title I’ve read today. Isn’t it obvious that Miss NY is from NY??? How about saying “Miss NY Crowned Miss AMERICA.”

    Do you know that her parents are Russians? But it is very weird, she doesn’t look like Russian, she looks awful

  • kirki

    If THIS is the most beautiful girl, imagine all the others. Sorry but this isn’t beauty. Not even close.

  • fgg

    The talent acts were horrible, including her lame imitation of Anna whatshername. The piano act was the only impressive one.

  • Samantha

    WOW! Be happy for her and the fact she is the 3rd Miss New York in a row to become Miss AMERICA. No hatefulness, jealousy, or meanness please! There is far far too much of it in the World! When you wish only the best for others you receive that which YOU Need and WANT. Congrats to Miss NY, 2015 Miss AMERICA!
