Steve Harvey announced the final three names vying for Miss Universe 2019 crown and title and it is Miss Mexico, Miss South Africa and Miss Puerto Rico. The three beautiful ladies, Miss Puerto Rico – Madison Anderson, Miss South Africa – Zozibini Tunzi and Miss Mexico – Sofía Aragón waited to be declared as the Miss Universe 2019 winner. The other two took on the titles of 1st and 2nd Runner-Up. The three ladies were given one question (same to all) and as they answered, other two will be wearing noise-cancelling headphones. The question that would win Miss Universe 2019 crown was "What is the most important thing you should be teaching young girls today?" In fact, Steve Harvey also introduced a new feature in this year's competition. It is called the closing word, where the Top 3 were given a final chance to convince the judges to give them the title. Truly, Harvey style.

Earlier in the main event day, Vartika Singh, Miss Universe India 2019 made the country proud with her Top-20 finish. The 26-year-old who won the title in India to represent the country at the highest stage received much applause and appreciation. After failing to make the cut from Africa and Asia-Pacific region, Vartika still went on to become one of the 20 semi-finalists as a wildcard contestant. India would be truly proud of her achievements.
