Miss World cancels 2020 edition
The pageant is moved to 2021 due to the COVID-19 crisis

The Miss World Organization announced Wednesday, July 29 that it is postponing the 70th edition of the pageant, and will be holding it instead in 2021.

The announcement was made on the pageant’s Facebook page. A venue for the competition has yet to be announced.

Julia Morley, CEO of the Miss World Organization said: “We have made the decision to delay the 70th Miss World Final. Safety is paramount as we continue the fight against COVID- 19. We look forward to welcoming the Miss World family to our very special celebrations next year.”

The announcement means Miss World Toni-Ann Singh will hold on to the crown for a bit longer, until she crowns her successor.

The Miss World is the second of the bigger international pageants to announce its postponement. The Miss International pageant, which is annually held in Japan, announced in June that they’ve moved the 60th edition to 2021.

In the Philippines, Miss World Philippines national director Arnold Vegafria announced that the 2020 edition of the local pageant will be moved to January 2021. – Rappler.com
