Me walking down the red carpet when I get my first Grammy nomination... DREAM BIG ⭐️ Tonight, one of my dreams came true. Walking in a gown on the Miss America stage was the most amazing feeling. I shared my passion for the arts and how I will continue my work of advocating for the arts, so that every child in our country can have access to a well-rounded education. ------#advocatingforthearts Gown: @jovanifashions Gown Sponsor: @cocoschateau

"From the state with 84 percent of the U.S. fresh water but none for its residents to drink, I am Miss Michigan, Emily Sioma," she said.

Last criquite of the night by viewers was the new category "Red carpet competiton" where participants shared a short message with viewers, similar to how a celebrity might respond to a question on the carpet.
