She did not win the interview contest. That honor went to Miss Massachusetts Gabriela Taveras, whose question dealt with how Americans traveling overseas should interact with people in other countries.

Today marked the third and final night of preliminary competition in the Miss America competition. She said she likes the lyrics about getting knocked down, picking yourself up and getting back in the race. She said it was important to know that, 'We as Americans are supporting them and that we are there to help them'.

A Miss America candidate had a quick answer when asked on Friday to name the most serious issue facing the country - replying that it was President Trump.

During the first two nights of competition, some of the onstage interview questions have touched on hot button issues, including NFL national anthem protests.

"It's very important that we also have to take into consideration that it is not about kneeling: it is absolutely about police brutality".

In the talent competition, Miss Louisiana Holli' Conway won for a vocal performance, singing Fantasia's "I Believe".

The Miss America contestant was later pressed on whether she was concerned about possible negative reactions she could face for her response, which also won her a scholarship prize worth $1,000.
