Even MJ cried a river and lost whatever was left of her composure and just let go. It was a humbling victory for her. Moments before the Bb Pilipinas Universe crown was announced, the camera already caught MJ shedding a tear or two when she realized that there was only one crown left and Pia Wurztbach, the other crown favorite was right there with her.
It was now down to MJ and Pia and MJ must have felt that it was now or never
The stars were indeed aligned that night for MJ who gave the performance of her life

"The greatest advantage of being a woman is being able to compose herself. Just like here, we're standing in front of thousands of people, not knowing if they're going to cheer for us or boo us.
But we try to compose ourselves. We keep the emotions and show the beauty that is in us and tonight, thousands of people are standing here, celebrating the beauty of women."
