ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (Sept. 15, 2014) – A new Miss America has been crowned!

But the apple doesn’t far fall from the tree when it comes to which state holds the title!

Kira Kazantsev was crowned the winner in Atlantic City last night.

This is third year in a row that Miss New York has taken home the pageant’s top prize.

And her “talent” was one of the most talked about of the night.

She sang “Happy” by Pharrell while doing a “red plastic cup” routine, similar to the one in “Pitch Perfect.”

Watch the performance in the video below.
