The coronation ceremony of Miss Global 2019 was nothing short of dramatic as one of the sponsors appeared on the stage and blamed the finalists for manipulating the results.

Miss Global Colombia 2019 strongly opposed it and announced that there was ‘fraud’ in the competition. Few delegates supported her as well. The ceremony was interrupted with the sponsor and Miss Global Colombia 2019’s sudden bashing and the winners were announced after the break at the Miss Global Leadership meeting.
