The 66th Miss USA pageant will be held this Sunday, May 14, in Las Vegas, but before 51 women fight for this year's crown, let's get to know the judges who will be making the tough decisions! The victor of Miss USA 2017 will represent the country at the global Miss Universe beauty pageant.

Their stories stand in stark contrast to the scandal that enveloped the pageant in 2015, when its then co-owner and now president Donald Trump offended Hispanics when he made anti-immigrant remarks in announcing his bid for the White House.

The two-hour event will feature hosts Julianne Hough, Ashley Graham and Terrence J.

Grammy Award-winning artist Pitbull and CMA Award-winning singer-songwriter Brett Eldredge will provide musical entertainment.

The pageant will air tonight on Fox starting at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CT) with contestants from all 50 states and the District of Columbia taking part in swimsuit, evening gown and on-stage questions. The broadcast also will include a performance from a Cirque du Soleil show - a Las Vegas staple - based on Michael Jackson songs.
