The reason for her underwhelming performance of “Pray” was attributed to health issues.

The song, which was produced by music producer DTAP, was previously performed by Phuong at a send-off ceremony before her departure to India for the competition. The Vietnamese beauty also wrote a rap verse for the song.

Prior to this, Mai Phuong had also made it to the Top 25 in the Head To Head Challenge, but unfortunately couldn’t secure a spot in the Top 5 of the category.

The 71st Miss World pageant is currently taking place in New Delhi and Mumbai, attracting around 112 contestants. The grand finale is scheduled to be held on March 9 in Mumbai.

In recent years, representatives from Vietnam have achieved notable success at the Miss World pageant. Luong Thuy Linh reached the Top 12 in 2019, while Do Thi Ha made it to the Top 13 finalists in 2021.
