Last night, Miss Philippines contestant, Miss Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach was crowned Miss Universe 2015, but not before a controversial crowning. The pageant, which was held at the Planet Hollywood Hotel in Las Vegas, was hosted by American comedian Steve Harvey who mistakenly announced Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez, as Miss Universe 2015 in what would have been a repeated win for Columbia, mirroring last year. 

It was a dramatic end to the coveted competition, with Miss Colombia being de-crowned as Harvery announced: "Okay folks, I have to apologise. The first runner-up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines!" He quickly followed on by saying, "Listen folks, let me just take control of this. This is exactly what's on the card. I will take responsibility for this. It was my mistake. It was on the card. Horrible mistake. It is my mistake."

Elegantly dressed Pia appeared shocked as former Miss Universe Colombia removed the crown from Miss Colombia and presented it to Miss Philippines instead. 

Miss Philippines final words? "To be Miss Universe would be both an honour and a responsibility. I will use my voice to influence the youth and I would raise awareness to certain causes. I want to show the world, the universe rather, that I am confidentally beautiful with a heart."
