LAS VEGAS (AP) - A parade of beauties from every state are primping and prepping to compete for the Miss America crown Saturday night.
The show at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip is the culmination of a week of preliminary competitions and months of practice.
Each of the beauty queens has already proven her poise, charm and volubility by winning her state crown.
After an opening number, the judges will announce 16 finalists.
The women will strut their stuff in swimsuit, evening gown, talent and interview competitions, with cuts after each round until a new Miss America is crowned.
