There are already some preliminary winners in the Miss America Pageant 2011 competition as the event heads into the last night of competition on Saturday.

The final competition airs tonight on the ABC network at 9:00 p.m. EST/PST.

The Talent competition in each of the first three nights earlier this week resulted in a $2000 scholarship prize for each winner, while the Lifestyle and Fitness contest gave each winner $1000.

Preliminary talent winners were Adrienn Core, Miss North Carolina; Deborah Saint Vi, Miss Rhode Island; and Teresa Scanlan, Miss Nebraska.

Preliminary lifestyle and fitness winners included Jalee Fuselier, Miss Hawaii; Ashley Davis, Miss Alabama; and Emoly West, Miss Oklahoma.

The overall winner will have to impress judges in the interview room and on-stage during the competitions. Only one will get to perform a year of service with the title Miss America 2011.

This year's seven judges are: Joy Beyhar of TV's The View; Debbye Turner Bell, who is Miss America 1990 and now a veterinary doctor; Marc Cherry, the creator of Desperate Housewives.;  Tony Dolovani of Dancing with the Stars.; actress Marilu Henner; Taryn Rose a shoe designer and orthopedic surgeon; and country singer Mark Wills.
