Miss Jamaica, Dr Sanneta Myrie, has been placed third in the Miss World Talent Competition on Monday, December 14. Miss Guyana won the competition while Miss Malaysia was placed second, Myrie revealed on Facebook.
Miss World Talent is a fast track competition in the Miss World pageant, in which a number of contestants show their abilities in singing, dancing, poetry, etc. The winner of the event automatically makes it into the semifinals. Jamaica never won this fast track competition. This is the first win for Guyana.
After singing an original song, titled ‘One Last Time’, penned in tribute to her deceased cousin, who was the first person in her life to envision and encourage her prospering singing career, Miss Guyana, Lisa Punch, received a standing ovation from her fellow contestants and the crowd, who were left teary-eyed and spellbound by her flawless voice, captivating delivery, and emotional lyrics.
The Top 5 placement:
1st – Miss Guyana
2nd – Miss Malaysia
3rd – Miss Jamaica
4th – Miss Paraguay
5th – Miss Samoa
“My dance is titled ‘Exodus’ and embodies the movement of the Caribbean people. It tells the story of us going from slavery to freedom and breaking the shackles of physical or mental entrapment,” Dr Myrie revealed in an interview.
Choreographed by the Quilt Performing Arts Company, Miss Jamaica performed to a reggae fusion of Damian Marley & Mutabaruka at Miss World Talent Finals 2015 held tonight in Sanya, China.
Miss Jamaica revealed last month that she would be performing a ‘Mutabaruka and Marley fusion‘ dance. The pageant kicked off on November 20, 2015 with talent auditions. However, the crowning of Miss World is set for December 19.
