Choosing the Right Talent for a Beauty Pageant

contest talent

Many beauty pageants include a talent portion of the competition. When they do, this portion of the pageant provides numerous points for those that do well. It can also be an area of concern for competitors if they are not sure what to do.

Popular choices

The three most popular choices for talent are dance, song, and playing an instrument. Each of these takes skill and style and can be a hit with judges and the audience. If you select one of these options, you will have plenty of competition. To stand out, you need to do an awesome job or do something different. This may mean choosing a different style of music or including another twist in your performance.

Stand up acts

Another option is to perform some type of stand-up act. It may be a comedy routine or a monologue or you may choose to do a demonstration. While often seen as the choice for those with no “special” talent, it is actually a great idea for anyone that wants to stand out. To make this work, you must create emotion in your audience. Comedy has to make people laugh or it won’t work. If you opt for something serious and sad, you’d better bring the audience and judges to tears.

Double up

To really make an impression, try combining two talents in your act. Dance and sing, play an instrument while you sing, or even try dance while you play an instrument. Just make sure you are equally talented on each skill before you attempt both at the same time.

Be unique

Instead of sticking with what is traditionally done in beauty pageants, you can go your own way. Select something unusual like juggling or magic to thrill your audience. Find out what is allowed before you decide on a talent that is different, but don’t be afraid to try. You just never know when it might make you a winner.
