INFORMATION REGARDING TALENT TIME (EFFECTIVE JUNE 2010)
The Talent Time Limit for all Miss America Competitions, Local, State and National is 1 minute, 30 seconds.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM MISS AMERICA REGARDING TALENT PRESENTATIONS (EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 7, 2005)
"In recent years, many contestants have taken advantage of the rule which allows for BACKGROUND vocals, instrumentation, etc. That "taking advantage" includes instrumentalists and tap dancers using the instrument they play as well as tap dancers using additional taps on their accompaniment tape to enhance their performance. Regardless of the talent performed, the background tape cannot have voices, instruments, or other noises which mimic the talent of the contestant. (Example: A vocalist may have background vocals with "oohs and aahs" or other background lyrics, but cannot have a tape with a voice singing the melody line for the contestant to sing along with. The same would be said for instrumentalists, dancers, and any other talent which could provide for an unfair advantage if a judge could not delineate from the talent on the track versus the live performance of the contestant.)"
