The pageant proper kicked off with a line-up and welcome dance by the twelve contestants dressed in their best, with saree costumes sponsored by The Bombay Palace. The ladies, who hailed from as far as Sarawak self-introduced themselves before they were short-listed to five finalists.

While the scores were tabulated, guests were entertained with energetic dance performances by dancers from Susan Ting Dance Academy and Kavitha Chetty. Loh Carman, who choreographed the girls’ dance routine belted out a Mandarin oldie, and dhol performances by a bhangra troupe made the pageant truly 1 Malaysia.
