LAS VEGAS (AP) — A new Miss USA will be crowned Sunday night after a series of controversies last year with the beauty pageant organization, including a fall out with former owner Donald Trump and the mistaken crowning of Miss Universe.
The 2016 Miss USA competition is being held at the T-Mobile Arena off the Las Vegas Strip with 52 contestants this year. In addition to the local winners in the contests of each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia, the beauty pageant this year also named a “Miss 52 USA” who was chosen by fan votes.
The winner will go on to represent the country in the Miss Universe contest.
The Fox network will carry the broadcast.
