Update: Drevlow First in Talent, 2nd Night of Preliminaries 07 Sep 17

Friday September 8th ..

Last night – it was all Brianna …

Thief River Falls native, former Miss North Star and current Miss Minnesota; Brianna Drevlow – taking Atlantic City by storm, winning the Talent Competition on Preliminary Night #2 of the Miss America Pageant.

Bette Jorgenson of Thief River Falls is our “eyes-on-the-scene” this week as we track events in Atlantic City. 

Jorgenson says Brianna was up first with her own arrangement on piano of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue; preformed with enough confidence and panache to bring down the house and bring home another $2000 in college scholarships.

Tonight – the On-Stage Question with the Final Night of Competition to be televised live in Prime Time on the ABC Network – this Sunday beginning at 9pm Eastern.

And we will continue to host updates each morning on Thief River Falls Radio, and again our thanks to Jorgenson, serving as our East Coast Correspondent this week.
