Miss America 2016 is just around the corner and 52 ladies from each state, as well as Washington D.C and Puerto Rico, are preparing to face off for the highly coveted crown. During the pageant the ladies will be asked to showcase a talent, their passion for helping others, and some modeling skills in both an evening gown and swimsuit competition. The show will be broadcast live on television, but for those without access to a TV the night of the beauty queen showdown, you're in luck!
Miss America 2016 will be streaming live on ABC. Viewers can go to the website now to ensure the pageant is available for streaming in their area. Unfortunately, coverage of the show online will not begin until Sunday, Sept. 13, at 9 p.m. EDT.
As we previously reported, Vanessa Williams has officially signed on to judge the competition. This news comes more than 30 years after she was forced to give up her titled as Miss America after nude photos of her were published in Penthouse magazine. Joining her at the judges table will be Brett Eldredge, Danica McKellar, Kevin O’Leary, Taya Kyle, Amy Purdy and Zendaya Coleman. Miss America 2016 will be hosted by former "The Bachelor" star Chris Harrison, once again.
Be sure to tune in to Miss America 2016. Until then, get to know a little about the ladies competing for the crown.
