Miss USA Pageant This Sunday
Miss USA Erin Brady will be ending her year long reign Sunday, June 8 at the 2014 pageant competition being held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Who will be our next Miss USA? You be the judge.Preliminary competitions in swimsuit and evening gown were scheduled for Wednesday at the Baton Rouge River Center. The final category, interview, will be determined Sunday.
The women have been in Louisiana's capital city for more than a week, preparing for the contest that will propel one of them to the Miss Universe pageant later this year.
They've visited a few of south Louisiana's plantations and other landmarks, including the old state capitol and governor's mansion, tasted some of the state's cuisine and cut loose at a karaoke bar.
NBC will broadcast Sunday's competition at 7 p.m. CDT in a three-hour show that will include musical performances by country music hit-makers Florida-Georgia Line,rapper Nelly and Louisiana native Marc Broussard, whose set will include an appearance by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
Fans also will have the chance to save their favorite contestant during the evening gown competition through Twitter, using #SaveTheQueen along with a keyword that will be provided on screen during the live telecast.
Good luck to Miss Illinois Alexis Atkins! Bring the crown home for "flatlanders" everywhere
