Miss Louisiana Wins Talent Competition with Ventriloquism

 

 

 

Miss Shreveport Laryssa Bonacquisti has been named Miss Louisiana 2017.

 

Laryssa won the talent segment on Thursday with a performance of "I Want to be a Cowboy's Sweetheart" with two puppets, Lucky and Lucy. The ventriloquist sang, yodeled and auctioned. (I think I may have seen pageant contestants do this 10 or 12 times in the past. Wouldn’t it be novel to see one of these contestants actually be funny?”)

 

 

 

Actually, it may not have been her “talent” that sealed the deal for the pageant winner. Bonacquisti also won the swimsuit competition on Friday.  Let’s get some talent like that on the Saturday Night Show at the Ventriloquists’ Convention!

 


Here’s a video of Laryssa’s act from a few years ago.

Chip Shot: When a woman says to you, “OMG I can’t believe I’m doing this,” just remember, she had it planned from the minute she shaved her legs.

This Has More Than 2 Billion Plays on YouTube

 

When this video first appeared on YouTube in January of 2015, I included it in this blog. Since that time it has gotten more than 2 billion hits on YouTube making it one of the most, if not the most, viewed music video in history.


So take a couple of minutes to sit back, smile a lot and enjoy this epic piece of music.
