Miss Louisiana Wows Social Media With Puppet Ventriloquist Act

The 2018 Miss America Pageant was held this past weekend in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and there was one act that stood out from the rest. 

Miss Louisiana, Laryssa Bonacquisti, took the stage during the talent portion with two puppets and performed a ventriloquist act - with yodeling - and she was amazing!

Immediately, the act blew up on social media, being one of the most memorable moments of the evening.
