More than just their pretty faces and lovely figures, candidates in beauty pageants now have to hurdle another pageant segment to showcase their natural ability to wow the judges. The eight candidates just did that during the Miss Amlan 2017 Beauty Pageant Talent Competition last Saturday, November 18 at the Amlan Central Square. The talent competition was brought back to the Miss Amlan Beauty Pageant in response to the growing number of requests from fans and critics alike who argued that there is more to these candidates than meets the eye.
Any talent is allowed, and the candidate is given the creative freedom to showcase her ability, be it in dancing, singing, acting, and everything in between. There are several qualities a judge looks for in a talent presentation. Candidates’ performances are judged on execution and skill, technical difficulty, choreography, and overall impact. The Panel of Judges was composed of:
April Angel Bersabal
After the competition, the Pageant Committee announced the top three performers in no particular order. The Best in Talent Award will be announced during the Miss Amlan 2017 Selection and Coronation Night on November 27, 2017.
Here are the candidates’ individual talent presentation:
Candidate #1 Rikah Nina Silorio
Candidate #2 Irish Mae Alparo
Candidate #3 Princess Ann Montecino
Candidate #4 Jennifer Gutib
Candidate #5 Cyra Mendieta
Candidate #6 Khaela Jean Turco
