Teary Moments, Unveiling Miss Georgia Betty Cantrell as the New Miss America 2016

Betty Cantrell, Miss Georgia, took home the national crown in Sunday’s  Miss America pageant, defeating 51 other competitors, one from each of the United States plus Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

Miss Betty Cantrell totally owned it in the talent portion of the competition as she sang an opera for her talent performing an emotional rendition of "Tu Tu Piccolo Iddio."

With  a sense of good judgement she had a edge after fielding a unique answer in the question
and answer section .. "if New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady cheated"

Here's her response .."New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was suspended for his part in the so-called ‘DeflateGate’ scandal, then re-instated by the courts," Eldredge asked. "Legalities aside, did Tom Brady cheat?"

"That’s a really good question," Cantrell answered. "I’m not sure. I think i’d have to be there to see the ball, feel it, make sure it was deflated or not deflated. But if there was question there, then yes, I think he cheated and he should have been suspended for that. That’s not fair."

Cantrell, who hails from Warner Robbins, Georgia, was overcome with emotion when pageant hosts Chris Harrison and Brooke Burke-Charvet announced her as the 2015 queen. She is just the second Miss Georgia to win Miss America, taking home the coveted crown as well as a $50,000 scholarship.

During her year as Miss America, Cantrell will serve as a spokesperson for Healthy Children, Strong America.
