Last night, Miss New York, Kira Kazantsev, won the Miss America Pageant and her talent was...wait for it...THE CUP SONG.
The cup song combined with Pharrell's "Happy". This is what my own personal hell would be like.

She combined the two things we never wanted to ever hear again: Pharrell's song "Happy" and the cup song from the movie "Pitch Perfect."
And sadly, it wasn't very good. It seemed like she got nervous when the crowd wasn't going wild for her mashup (did we mention she wasn't wearing any shoes?) and her vocals and rhythm were all over the place.
So if I learn the cup song, do I have a shot at being Ms. America?

After her performance most of us watching were sure she had no chance of winning.
I bet NY is going to win it all and be like haha I did the cup song #missamerica

Yet, somehow, she still managed to beat out the opera singer, the dentist, and our personal favorite, the ventriloquist (seriously tho).

We've seen the cup song in a pageant before. When was that?

At the end of the day, Miss America seems like a perfectly nice girl. She looks great a bikini and wears white after Labor Day like it's her job. She's breaking all the rules!
Congratulations, Miss America!
If playing the cup song can get me a $50,000 scholarship I'm putting that on all of my college applications

Can't wait to see what talents we'll see next year now that the bar has basically been obliterated.
AMERICA IS CURRENTLY BEING REPRESENTED BY SHOULDER PADS AND THE CUP SONG
