Night two of the preliminary competition at the Eden Prairie Performing Arts Center kicked off with hosts Brad Carlson & Siri Freeh-Thaden Miss MN 2012.
Miss Minnesota 2015 Rachel Latuff helped in livening the crowd by challenging the judges to a ribbon dance off. Two judges participated; the crowd went wild over the leaps, twirls and splits performed by one judge. Wanting to concede, the other judge took the stage and wowed the crowd with her dynamic ribbon movements painting the stage and sky with ease!
Lifestyle and Fitness in a Swimsuit for contestants 1-14. The ladies were graceful and truly demonstrated why Miss America focuses on overall wellbeing by carrying on the swimsuit competition tradition!
Talent!!! This was a jam packed night! Piano, Celtic vocals, tap dance, contemporary dance, electric violin... You name it we saw it!
Following intermission the crowd enjoyed a performance by the Northern Lights princesses. For Rachel's pageant career she has had the same NLP. Together Amaya and Rachel performed a special dance incorporating ribbon and matching outfits to a montage of Taylor Swift songs!
Evening gown tonight was wonderful! Dresses in reds, blues, a vibrant yellow, brilliant plum, and more!!! The silhouettes were everything from mermaid to ball gown and A-line.
Overall tonight's show was amazing!
