Get your popcorn ready, because the Miss USA pageant takes place this Sunday, May 14, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This year marks the 66th Miss USA pageant, where 51 contestants will compete for the esteemed crown.
Julianne Hough and Terrence J. will be hosting the highly-anticipated event, and Ashley Graham will keep us all posted on the scoop that's going down backstage.
The competition will showcase both evening gown and swimsuit categories. In addition, there will be a Final Look and Final Question round.
Years of hard work, dedication and practice goes into this major finale that's streamed live as viewers keep their eyes glued to the TV screen.

Once every stiletto is strapped into place, and glittery gowns are zipped up, it's time for the day to boil down to one thing: A winner taking home an exquisite crown and the elite title of “Miss USA.”
