Dancing with the Stars finalist Ally Brooke slayed her performance at the Miss Universe pageant with a tribute to late Tejano superstar performer Selena Quintanilla and the debut of her own new tune, "No Good." Ally commented "tonight has been incredible" in a subsequent Instagram post she shared regarding the exciting evening.
Ally opened up the annual show with her new song. Women from around the world competed in categories such as interview skills, evening gowns, and a swimsuit or athletic wear competition in their quest for the title of Miss Universe.
Coming off a remarkable run on the ABC competition dance series, where she placed third alongside professional dance partner Sasha Farber, the singer was sassy in a white midriff shirt and matching pants as she debuted her song on a world stage.
Ally later paid homage to Selena by performing an emotional rendition of "I Could Fall in Love," to introduce the evening gown portion of the competition.
For that segment of her performance, Ally stunned in a form-fitting one-shoulder black and silver gown, which had a dramatic slit up the left side of her body almost to her thigh. Her ensemble was accented with sparkles surrounding the deep cut of the garment.
She paired that look with her hair secured in a tight bun and accented with a diamond headband. She also wore a glittery set of diamond earrings and a bracelet.The former Fifth Harmony singer then belted out a beautiful cover of Selena's "Dreaming of You" throughout the remainder of the segment. At its conclusion, she was joined by the Top 10 finalists of the competition.
