EDISON, NJ - Emily Shah is still No. 1 in New Jersey.

Hoping to become the first Miss New Jersey crowned Miss USA wasn't in the cards Sunday evening. Despite making into the Top 20 finalists, Shah wasn't crowned Miss USA. 

After departing the day after riding in the Edison Memorial Day Parade, she spent the last two weeks on a grueling Miss USA schedule in Baton Rogue, La. prior to Sunday night's competition.

Wearing a Sherry Hill red dress, Shah made the Top 20 after 13 other contestants were called. The Top 20 were selected by judges during the preliminary round prior to the final competition.

Following the parade of the Top 20 contestants in their swimsuits the Top 10 were called, and Emily wasn't among them.

Her experience participating in the Miss USA pageant representing New Jersey will last a lifetime.
