Jamaica's Toni-Ann Singh was crowned new Miss World for 2019 while India's Suman Ratan Singh Rao bagged the third spot. They had to take part in six different competitions before the final event took place on Saturday.

Morgan further took to Twitter to congratulate Singh saying, "Beautiful lady with an equally handsome voice".

The top five came from Nigeria, Brazil, India, Jamaica and France.

But it was Singh's powerful voice that had wowed the judges with her rendition of Whitney Houston's "I have nothing".

This was the 69th edition of Miss World contest, and beauties from 120 countries competed for the crown this year.

In her free time she enjoys singing, cooking, vlogging and volunteering. She, according to the website, had previously worked as president of the Caribbean students association. She is a psychology and women studies graduate of the Florida State University. Her special talent is that she can sing classical opera.

She now becomes the fourth Jamaican to win the title - Carole Joan Crawford in 1963, Cindy Breakspeare in 1976 and Lisa Hanna in 1993. She also thanked her mother for her unconditional support.

From its inception in 1951 until 1988 every Miss World Pageant was held in London first at the Lyceum Theatre until 1968 then at the Royal Albert Hall until 1988.

The top 5 will be grilled by controversial British broadcaster Piers Morgan to answer a final question, with current Miss World Vanessa Ponce of Mexico on hand to pass the ornate crown to this year's victor.
