Then the emcee tells us that Ana will be representing the country of Africa. Yes, the entire country. Which is actually a continent made up of many countries, most of which I could not name. Cutting the emcee a wee bit of slack, my guess is Quinoa filled out that form. Just a hunch.
And representing the country of Afghanistan is….little help?
One of the judges says Ana was very polished but she just needed to relax a little. Don’t we all?
But before we relax, Mime Girl should be killed immediately.
SCHWEET! World Wear Competition! I really love this idea – oh, man, Mackenzie picked her nose!
Everytime, people, everytime.
Mackenzie is up first and she is representing Portugal, so she does a bullfighting dance/routine. It is so cute and she really does a great job. When she tosses a piece of fabric in the air, it’s the red bullfighting cloth, not any of her clothing. “I’m a rock star!” she says, doing a little more of her dance. Yes, yes you are!
Because killing animals for sport is fun!
Kerry Ann is freaking out about Lacey’s costume and the veil over her head, and she says it out loud so now Lacey’s nervous.
This helps NO ONE.
Lacey gets onstage in her Indian dress and does her dance, and of course the scarf gets caught on her headdress. So she swings it around differently and it works. She does a great routine and really knows her stuff but Kerry looks like she really needs to take a dump. RELAX! She’s fine!One judge says she was impressed how well Lacey knew the routine, she wasn’t coached and she had great energy and enthusiasm. Yay!
This stage is MINE, bitches!
But Lacey freaks a little when she’s finished…she tears up and says, “I’m not going to win and you know I’m not.” Oh, my God, I just wanted to hug this kid and I like hugs less than kids! I’m sure that if Kerry had smiled more during the routine instead of looking so worried/constipated, we wouldn’t be listening to this conversation. Kerry really needs to chill and maybe when she sees herself she’ll realize it and paste a smile on her face next time.
Kerry consoles Lacey and finally Lacey does the kid thing and heads right into mom’s shoulder to cry. And to wipe her eyes on mom’s shirt because why else is it there except for tears and snot?
Hey, Old-Soul Eyes, you did GREAT!
Quinoa adds a hand bump to her headbob when she tells us that Ana is about to do her African routine, “That I personally made up,” she adds, probably from watching Eddie Murphy movies or at least one in particular. Is that Soul Glo in her hair?
Mmm-hmmm and uh-huhhh.
Ana’s routine is great, it’s clear she practiced and is very talented, then Quinoa SCREAMS, “GET IT BAAAAABBBBBYYYY!” and I cringe…
…for so many reasons.
You know, I sort of felt like the scraps of the fabric on this costume were so all over the place, it kind of make the routine a teeny bit sloppy – even though it wasn’t. One judge said you couldn’t see her face all that much and this is, after all, a pageant…and this was World Wear, not Talent. Quinoa screams again.
Shaka Zulu Zamunda!
Time for Outfit of Choice! Mackenzie’s outfit is a piano and she’s all excited because on the way to the pageant room she’s walking backwards and not even falling. Sometimes I can’t do that when I’m walking forward, so kudos to you, kid! Although…who the hell chooses to dress like a piano ever? Why would that be an outfit of choice?
