The third preliminary night of the 2018 Miss America competition Friday provided contestants with one final opportunity to impress the judges before the field is cut from 51 to 15 contestants Sunday night.

For the second straight night, Miss Louisiana Laryssa Bonacquisti came away with a preliminary award, snagging the talent competition with her skit as a ventriloquist.

Bonaquisti received a roaring ovation after switching between three voices — Lucky, Lucy and herself — while singing and yodeling her way to the award Friday night.
