In front of a packed crowd, she also was the overall lifestyle and fitness winner as well.

Bridges, 21, sang "There Will Come A Day."

Miss Warner Robins Olivia McMillan was named the 2014 Miss Georgia Outstanding Teen. Her opera performance drew a standing ovation.

This week marked the 70th anniversary of the pageant.

The three contestants with Columbus ties Miss Atlanta Shelby Rice, Miss Columbus Hayley Henderson and Miss Columbus State Kelsey Ray were shut out of the Top 10.

First runner-up for Miss Georgia was Miss Cobb County. Miss Presidential Pathways was second runner-up.

Contestants representing Cherokee Rose, Warner Robins, Fulton County, Capital City, Lake Lanier, Savannah River, International City, University of Georgia, Cobb County and Presidential Pathways rounded out the top 10.

Bridges, who is from Brinson, will go on to represent Miss Georgia at the Miss America pageant in September.
