Miss Mississippi teen
The Miss Mississippi teen pageant is on tonight. Right now all the contestants are doing a hip-hop inspired dance dressed in baggy shorts of shades of yellow, green, orange, and pink, and shirts and baseball caps the same. Their song is "working at the carwash" . All the ten semifinalsits are just walking slowly across the stage to show off their "physical fitness" in the "activewear" competition. This is modest tank tops and shorts or skirts that are relatively modest. They are doing this while everyone else does dance moves in the background. YOu can see the contestants here
They have also done a dance to a remix of "If I was a rich girl" by Gwen Stefani. Their talents were mostly wan ballet or shockingly off-key singing. There was one monologue one girl wrote - I think she was pretending she was a Confederate nurse. She dressed in long dress and an apron with decorative fake bloodstains on it. She used a very soft tragic voice and pretended she was reaching out to dying Confederate soldiers. Still this is better than the anemic ballet. I wish that more of them chose to showcase talents other than singing - but I guess it doesn't look as cute if you are hunched over a piano in the judges' opinions.
Now all the car-washers are washing a little tractor driven by a five year old boy in a baseball cap. it's all very remarkable. I will let you know who is winning.
