"This decision has been one of the hardest decisions that I've ever had to make," she said today on "GMA." "Lakewood really embodied a whole school spirit. ... It was so incredibly crafted ...so interesting and well done and organized. It was thousands of kids coming together to 'Roar' and that's what this competition means to me."
