The Miss America 2020 pageant is getting a new home and date this year, but women from all 50 states, as well as Washington D.C., are still getting ready to compete for the national title and take the crown.

This year’s competition is getting two new homes this year, with both a return to NBC after several years airing on ABC, as well as a move from Atlantic City, New Jersey. The competition will now air live from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, on Thursday, Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. EDT. This is a change from a previous air date in September when the show aired on ABC.

“The Miss America Organization is proud to partner with Mohegan Sun as we return to our longtime NBC home,” Regina Hopper, President & CEO of The Miss America Organization said in a press release. “We are looking forward to a fresh take on this historic competition that will showcase the incredible women vying for the job of Miss America 2020.”
