So harsh! ‘Embarrassing’ and ‘bland’ are just some of the words Twitter users chose to describe 2015’s Miss America, Kira Kazantsev, and her ‘talent’ after her competition win on Sept. 14. See what else they’re saying.
Kira Kazantsev‘s Pitch Perfect-inspired rendition of Pharrell Williams‘ “Happy” may have won over judges during the 2015 Miss America Competition in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Sept. 14, but fans on Twitter were less than enthused by the 23-year-old’s talent. In fact, a lot of Twitter users don’t even think Kira deserved the crown.
Miss America Dissed For Red Cup Talent — Kira Kazantsev Slammed On Twitter
Kira beat out 52 of America’s most beautiful and talented women to take home the Miss America crown on Sept. 14, and we totally see why — she’s beautiful, smart and talented! Unfortunately, not everyone agrees with us.
See what fans are saying on Twitter below:
I just saw #MissAmerica‘s talent. She literally tapped a solo cup on the ground. It’s time to shut the pageant down. Embarrassing.

Somebody please tell me how playing with a red solo cup is a talent. #missamerica

The new Miss America won her crown after singing “Happy” while playing with a red plastic cup (watch the video above), a performance she said was inspired by a similar scene in the 2012’s “Pitch Perfect.”
Kira said she did it to show future contestants they can win the Miss America pageant by performing whatever talent routine they like, according to FOX 8.
We absolutely adored Kira’s talent routine and we hope Twitter users stop dissing her. She deserves her crown and she’ll be a great Miss America!
