MEGAN YOUNG – PHILIPPINES – IS MISS WORLD 2013!

23 year old Megan Young was earlier this evening crowned Miss World 2013!

At the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Centre in front of a sell out audience, Megan Young representing the Philippines recieved the Miss World Crown from Wenxia Yu, marking a new era of Miss World! With a huge array of music dancing, bright lights and of course 127 amazing contestants, Miss World 2013 came to a dramatic conclusion as the cast was cut to 20, then 10, before a final 6 were left on stage to answer the judges questions.

Philippines, Brazil, Spain, Ghana, and France were the judges selection from the Top 10, before they were joined by the wildcard People’s Choice Gibraltar, who received the most votes on the Miss World 2013 App.

They were given the chance to tell the judges why they should be Miss World 2013, before we were treated to a musical trio of Miss World 2012 Wenxia Yu, Indonesia’s Vania Larissa and Australia’s Erin Holland who complimented each othwer perfectly in an operatic collaboration.

Then the fianl three were announced, with Megan Young winning the crown, France’s Marine Lorphelin as the First Runner up, Ghana’s Naa Okailey Shooter second runner up.

The confetti exploded onto the stage as all contestants linked arms and ended with a beautiful rendition of the Miss World song ‘Light the Flame’.

A more comprehensive write up to follow soon with ALL the photos of the night. As we speak, the Coronation Ball is in full swing and the Continental Queens of Beauty will receive their awards!
