ROANOKE, Va. -

The girls are ready.

And tomorrow night a new Miss Virginia will be crowned.

We checked in on the contestants today while they were rehearsing for tonight's final round of preliminaries.

26 girls from across the state are competing for the title and the chance to represent Virginia in the Miss America Pageant.

"I just get really excited and I just enjoy myself, I just live in the moment.  I don't think about what I'm doing next, I don't worry about what I did in the first preliminary night, I'm just excited," said Sarah Grace Fitzsimmons, Miss Virginia Association of Fairs.

"Really smooth, really fun,  I love being out on the stage, there's nothing that can beat that adrenaline rush," added Miss Greater Richmond Charlotte Fraser.

The finals are tomorrow night at the Roanoke Civic Center at 9 o'clock.

Tickets are still available.
