Every candidate has 90 seconds to perform a talent of her choice in front of the judges and the audience. This phase assesses the contestants’ dedication to her craft and stage presence. Talents include but are not limited to: singing, dancing, theatrical monologue, and instrumental performances. Performances must be done alone (accompaniment music is allowed) and talents involving fire, archery, live animals and firearms are not appropriate talents for the competition. For this phase, the entertainment value of the performance is just as important as the raw talent.
Evening Wear / Social Impact Statement 20%
Allows a look into how the candidate exhibits her own personal style, attitude, personality, grace, presence, and confidence while making her own statement about her mission for the job.
Looks into composure, confidence, the attention she captures on the stage, her command of the stage, presence and how she appears in the spotlight. Allows ability to judge first impression reaction and a look at posture and carriage while providing a chance to hear a candidate’s presentation of her social impact initiative.
On-Stage Question 15%
The On-Stage Interview phase of competition advances the same criteria as the personal interview by bringing it on stage in an interactive and substantive highly energetic way to showcase each candidates’ intelligence, personality, charisma and aptitude for the job.
The Private interview is ten minutes long and assesses the contestant’s preparedness, professionalism, and her ability to articulate her thoughts quickly and effectively. This phase of the competition is always first and has the largest impact on a judges choice in the winner.
