Who says the Miss America pageant can't keep up with the times?!
On Tuesday's preliminary competition for the 2015 crown, Miss Ohio Mackenzie Bart won the talent portion for her ventriloquism act. Bart took home a $2,000 prize for not just single-handedly making single guys across America suddenly very interested in the lost art, but because she also sang a duet of Mary Poppins' "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" with her blonde puppet (dressed in an elegant red sequined gown no less).
Surprisingly (or not), Bart is the only ventriloquist scheduled to perform at this year's competition. She says she was inspired by Shari Lewis and her famous puppet Lamb Chop.
So where can you see Bart's one-of-a-kind duet and the rest of this year's contenders, you ask? The 2015 Miss America Competition airs Sunday at 8/7c on ABC.
