Miss America contestants are a combination of beauty, brains and class, and the 2014 pageant, held in Atlantic City on Sunday, Sept. 15, featured 53 such women competing for the crown. Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, ultimately took home the crown, besting out Miss California, Miss Oklahoma, and Miss Florida for the coveted title
Miss Oklahoma is a-okay! Kelsey Griswold answered a tough question about Miley Cyrus' MTV VMA performance carefully: "I'm going to be honest. I don't think her performance was tweaking for me. Get it?" she replied during the Q&A segment of the competition. "It was not super tasteful but … I have to respect her creativity."
