From the Miss World website:
As well as bringing singing and dancing skills to the Miss World group performances, contestants are given the chance to demonstrate their own unique talents in front of a panel of judges.
Yes, the talent auditions have kicked off here in Ordos and those who make it through will get to showcase their skill at the Miss World talent show, which will take place on August 10th.
It’s one of the most exciting elements of the whole festival and a great way for the contestants to catch the eye of the judges. It really highlights the richness and diversity that Miss World brings together.
Previous years have seen contestants playing the accordion, performing magic tricks and one memorable performance of the traditional Chinese face-changing dance, Bian Lian.
This year promises to be every bit as memorable and we have already been treated to some incredible performances. You’ll have to tune in on the 10th to find out just what is in store, but we can promise you completely unique vocal feats, some serious musical maestros and contestants dancing up a storm. Talk about a gifted group of women!
After the end of a hard day for the judges, the first contestants confirmed to have made it through to the next round are as follows:
US Virgin Islands
St Kitts and Nevis
