They still do Miss American pageants? Huh...

They're just going with the times -- who actually goes to or watches it anymore?

Would have said throw a Sir Mix a Lot song in there but most of those contestants are non-badonkadonkish

Where else are you going to use that song?

Let's just use the Scary Movie version.

Let it go, and pick a new song. It just ain't the same without Bert Parks.

Couldn't the Miss America pageant sue the songwriter for using their (what I assume is) trademarked name in the song?  Or is miss america just a generic phrase that can have a broader interpretation beyond the pageant?

I don't understand what the copyright holder hopes to accomplish by withdrawing rights to the song... it's not like the song can be used in ANY other occasion.

I'd probably have tried to come to some sort of agreement to let the pageant continue using it, if only to guarantee income to my heirs.

They should use the Styx song Miss America.

Use the one by Styx.

Did Styx have to pay for their use of the term in Miss America?

Speaking of which, why not use that song? The sarcasm will appeal to ironic hipsters.

They could always use "Saving the Best for Last".

Vaseline. You just use it on your teeth, or on your lips.
It's a beauty secret.

the stupid over this issue hurts. how do you run the Miss America pageant and not lock down the rights to the Miss America song?

and for the heirs of the songwriter, this was free money you did nothing to earn. wasn't enough for you? ok, now you get nothing. because there is no reason for anyone to perform that song ever again.

farkstorm FAIL:

THERE SHE IS, MISS AMERICA
From "The Miss America Pageant"
(Bernie Wayne)

There she is, Miss America
There she is, your ideal
The dream of a million girls who are more than pretty can come true
in Atlantic City
For she may turn out to be the Queen of femininity
There she is, Miss America
There she is, your ideal
With so many beauties she took the town by storm
With her all-American face and form
And there she is
Walking on air, she is
Fairest of the fair, she is
There she is - Miss America


My bad.

This is a sign from God that the stupid pageant should be shut down.

Nobody watches it anymore. It even aired on Country Music Television and TLC at one point.

I took my 5 year old to the zoo yesterday and sang that ditty to the komodo behind the glass.  I'm betting he was glad it was only a movie.

That would certainly dispel any remaining illusions that anyone may have that it is anything but a human livestock contest.

Might as well call it as it is, then the host could scream really loud at the winner's butt.

I am guessing someone more enterprising than me could mix the two to see the effect:
