After a full night of competition, Miss Colombia (Paulina Vega) took home the crown and won the title of Miss Universe 2014. Kicking off the night, the 88 contestants from 89 nations came out and looked stunning in costumes representing their countries.
From their the lucky top 15 showed off their incredible figures in hot pink bikini’s while Prince Royale performed his hit, “Stuck On A Feelin.” Then it was time to narrow down the field again and the top 10 showed off their elegant evening wear — with three out of the ten stunners wearing red!
Nick Jonas treated the audience to not one of his hits, but three, including his new song, “Teacher.” In the middle of singing “Jealous” he even sweetly serenaded his stunning girlfriend and Miss Universe 2012 winner Olivia Culpo.
Then it was time for the questions, and we must admit that while many have mixed reactions to the answers given all ladies gave their answers with plenty of confidence.
Congratulations to Paulina!
