As with awards' telecasts, beauty pageants can be a long slog through stage patter, swimsuit malfunctions, broken heels, and fire baton twirling-and yet, if an audience is lucky, there is sometimes one talent number that galvanizes the crowd into a spontaneous eruption of wild cheers and fanatical applause. Such was the case on Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City as Miss'd America pageant contestant Michelle Dupree took the stage and delivered a knock-em-dead, eleven o'clock number channeling the spirits of Ethel, Ella, Judy, and Josephine that had the audience immediately on its feet with near-universal consensus of the night's most electrifying performance and ultimate winner.
