Miss Philippines advanced after winning the online votes.

Comparing my Top 16 predictions (Brazil, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, France, Great Britain, India, Israel, Philippines, Poland, Puerto Rico, Russia, Spain, Turkey, Ukraine, USA, Venezuela) to the official results, I got 11 of the official Top 16. Misses China, Ecuador, Indonesia, Nicaragua and Switzerland are not in my Top 16, but Indonesia, Nicaragua and Switzerland are in my Top 30. Ecuador and China rank 32nd and 40th in my list.

No Puerto Rico in the Top 10!

3:09 AM Evening Gown Competition is next. After this round, 5 of the Top 10 will be eliminated. Performer this time is Russian Superstar Emin Agalarov.

Based on the evening gown round, I think the Top 5 would be Spain, Ukraine, Brazil, Philippines and Venezuela.

Ecuador is IN.
Next up is Brazil.

Philippines is also IN.

No one saw this happening! It should have been Spain for me. Anyway, congrats Venezuela!

It's now the 4th consecutive year that Philippines finished in the Top 5, 3rd consecutive for Brazil and 2nd consecutive year for Venezuela.
