KINGSTON, Jamaica — Miss Jamaica World 2012, Deanna Robins placed in the Top 5 of the Talent Competition earlier today.
The 21 year-old-environmental biology student danced her way into the final five.
“The familiar opening chords of Bob Marley's Redemption Song sound and Deanna Robins of Jamaica appears in a dazzling sequined headband with a black leotard striped with the Jamaican national colours,” said the Miss World website.
Robins’ performance was a modern and contemporary dance which is a “reflection of the hardships overcome and the eventual deliverance felt by the Jamaican slaves as a result of their perseverance and subsequent freedom,” she said on the website.
Representatives from Norway, Philippines, Panama and China were the other four selected alongside Robins.
She also made it to the semifinals of the Beach Fashion competition and was selected as one of the contestants who would participate in the Top Model fashion show on August 12th.
The final is being held in Ordos, China on August 18.
Jamaica won its last of three Miss World titles in 1993 when a then 18-year old Lisa Hanna walked away with the top spot.
Yendi Phillipps finished sixth in 2007.
