Kristin Cavallari isn't the only one who was impressed with Heidi Montag's Miss Universe performance.

Miss USA Kristen Dalton tells Usmagazine.com she thought Montag's rendition of "Body Language" wasn't bad.

"I thought it was pretty good because she's known as being a reality TV star, so it's cool that she came out as a performer, as a dancer and singer," Dalton, 22, tells Us.

"I thought she did a great job as a performer," adds Dalton of Montag, 22.

Montag says she hopes her first performance helps her become become the next Britney Spears "career wise." (Pratt even donned a flesh-colored body suit that is similar to the one Spears wore for her 2000 MTV VMA performance.)

Spencer Pratt says his wife reminds him of another pop icon: Michael Jackson.

"The Holy Spirit now has Michael Jackson juice, so boom! For all we know, Heidi gets possessed with Michael Jackson's divine spirit," he says, calling her "way bigger" than Jackson, who died in June.
