I'm preparing for a meeting I have scheduled next week with the producer of a large beauty pageant. Though I don't have all the details, I'll tell you what I have. She wants me to perform a number with the contestants which will last about 3 1/2 minutes. There will be no talking during the performance as it will all be done to music. I've attached a link to the song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bx7cF8T4F44
(I promise I'm not Rick Rolln' ya) Anyway, she wants me to do something BIG at the end, which I have no problem with. We'll most likely do some sort of production of one of the girls or something. Either way, I have a lot of larger illusions I can show her to figure out which will work best.

So, what is my question? She wants me to do a few bits of magic during the song before the big ending. Below are a few of my ideas. Obviously, I'm not ging to do them all but can you guys think of anything else? The magic will have to be quick and visual. The number will be performed in front of a live audience of about 1,000 and broadcast on TV. The show is in a little over two months. For the meeting next week I just want to have a list of ideas to put in front of her to explain.

That's about all the information I have right now. Thanks to everyone in advance.

Lit a sigarette whit the candle and make it float, later make a rose appear from a flash flame, do a little manipulation whit the rose and a silk, put the rose in mouth and make the candle gone!

Anything with roses would be nice as well as appropriate for the situation. If you had access to/experience with a Crystal Casket, you could produce the real rose at the end of Kevin James' Floating Rose, put the rose into the Casket, cover it, and produce the girl holding the rose. I'm sure it's been done, but it could make for an amazing and beautiful closer.

Never mind... I just listened to the song, and it doesn't seem like "pretty" is what you are shooting for...

There is a great linking ring routine on The new Pendragon videos. His style of handling the rings would work with the feel of your music.

Yeah, music wasn't my choice.
