By TAJUANA CHESHIER Without a crystal ball, no.
Is it possible to predict the next winner of the Miss Tennessee Scholarship Pageant?
Without a crystal ball, no.But there are some trends in Miss Tennessee pageant history that reveal what it takes to bring home the crown.
"Since the pageant began in Jackson in 1953, there have been more winners from West and Middle Tennessee," Alford said.
For the last 10 years, Miss Tennessee has been a singer, dancer or musician.
"Vocal singing is our most popular talent," Alford said.
The most unusual talent for a contestant was in 1957 when Miss Tennessee Amanda Whitman, of Nashville, jumped on a trampoline.
A trend that hasn't been broken in years is the age of the young lady who receives the crown.
"We haven't had a teenager to win since 1968," Alford said. "That was Miss Kingsport, Brenda Seal. She was 19, and she finished in the top 10 in the Miss America pageant."

HOWELL — Acting and performing are second nature to Amy Polumbo of Howell, but remembering to be herself was the tougher challenge for the 22-year-old crowned the state's newest Miss New Jersey on Saturday.
The theater-performance major sailed through singing "Astonishing" from the Broadway musical "Little Women" in the pageant's talent competition. But she said she tripped onstage during the evening gown competition and had a major case of nerves about the pageant's interview and swimsuit competitions.
"The first night I was nervous, but after I was called for Top 10 I just said to myself, "This is funny, and you have to have fun with it,' " said Polumbo, a senior at Wagner College on Staten Island. "The butt glue in the bathing suits, all the preparation — you can't take everything in life too seriously.
"I really felt that throughout this whole process no matter what happened . . . I wanted to show the judges who I really am," said the 120-pound, 5-foot, 4-inch blonde.
Apparently judges liked what they got to know of Polumbo, who campaigned for protecting children from Internet predators and said she loves pizza and ice cream as much as the next guy.
The self-proclaimed "proud Jersey girl" beat 27 contestants for her crown, passed on by reigning Miss New Jersey Georgine DiMaria at the Music Pier in Ocean City.
CD Features Renditions of Classics Originally Recorded by Legends Such as Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Bobby Darin
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Things always heat up in July and the same can be said for Las Vegas’ own Sandy Kastel (www.sandykastel.com).

MINUTES before Friday night's Miss Hawaii pageant started, all 13 girls backstage shared their worst fear: tripping and falling.
Then just as the pageant started, it happened to 21-year-old Ashley Layfield. She took her first two steps on stage and tripped.
But there would be no tearful breakdown, no startled deer-in-the-headlights look and no jittery responses from a woman who's trained all her life to be light on her feet.
"I'm a dancer and I tried to make it look like part of the choreography, but it obviously wasn't," she said. "From then on, I told myself the worst possible thing happened so just have fun."
Possibly because she felt more at ease, Layfield won the pageant and was crowned Miss Hawaii 2007.
She will be competing as Hawaii's representative to the Miss America 2008 pageant in January.
Kirsten Haglund is a Miss Michigan newcomer -- of sorts.
Haglund, who won the crown on her first try Saturday, is the granddaughter of the 1944 titleholder.
Her grandmother, Iora Hunt, was in the audience and watched a shocked and humble Haglund take her winning walk before a crowd of about 1,400 in the Frauenthal Theater. Haglund, 18, advanced to the state pageant after winning Miss Oakland County. She will take a break from her studies at University of Cincinnati's Conservatory of Music to serve as Miss Michigan for the year and compete at the 2008 Miss America Pageant.
