It seems like criticism is a part of every win. Miss America 2014 Nina Davuluri had to face racist tweets and comments last year and this year- the new Miss America Kira Kazantsev is being criticized for her talent. In my opinion- her singing is better than what many can do, she was confident on stage, interacting with audience, and her performance had ability to make her stand out in the crowd. The world watches to see if their favorite wins, if not, follows the critism. Be a winner anyways!
