You know, the girl with the sash whom Bert Parks serenaded? She grew up in Atlantic City but split for Las Vegas back in 2006? The one with the crown?
Ah yes, the crown - the distinctive, four-pointed tiara laden with so much Swarovski that it shines as bright as the tear-streaked beauty queen wearing it.
When she became Miss Pennsylvania back in July, Kendria Perry got one of those - or at least a replica given to local and state winners. But this week in Las Vegas, she's competing for the real thing. After preliminaries, Miss America 2009 will be crowned during a live telecast Saturday night.
