Watch Miss America 2015 'cup' her talent round
Newly crowned Miss America 2015, Kira Kazantsev has many winning traits.
The most outstanding? The 23-year-old brought a rather different talent to the table.
The triple-major graduate (Political Science, Global Studies and Geography) took inspiration from Anna Kendrick's 'cups' scene in the popular movie Pitch Perfect but used Pharrell Williams' song Happy instead.
It worked out.
The performance wowed the crowd though many people online didn't think she did as well as the other contestants.
There's also a moving personal story.
Besides planning to enter law school, she is out on a mission to help women from abusive relationships - having been in one when she was a college student.
Beauty, brains and a desire to do good.
What's there not to like?
And here are some shots from her official "Toe Dip" along the beach front of the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City the morning after she won the title.
