Miss New York Wins Miss America For Third Year In A Row
Miss New York Kira Kazantsev was crowned the new Miss America on Sunday night in Atlantic City, N.J., marking the third year in a row that a contestant from the state has won the nationally televised pageant.
The 23-year-old beauty queen beat out 52 other contestants to win the title and a $50,000 scholarship.
How did she do it?
For her talent, Kazantsev sang Pharrell's “Happy” while sitting cross-legged on the stage while using a red plastic cup as a drum.

There was a bit of a flub during Kazantsev's performance, but it wasn't her fault.
