There are 51 women who are trying to go home with the title of Miss USA 2017 on Sunday, May 14.  All 50 states and the District of Columbia are represented at the sometimes-controversial pageant. The 66th Miss USA pageant will be judged in evening gown and swimsuit category. There will also be a Final Look and the now-infamous Final Question round.

This year's pageant, which will be hosted by Julianne Hough and Terrence J., will be telecast live on Sunday night from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The show will also feature a performance by Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson ONE, Pitbull and Brett Eldridge. Ashley Graham will serve as the backstage host. Halima Aden, Carson Kressley, Brook Lee, Nancy Lublin, Jeannie Mai and Janet Mock will act as judges.

Last year, the title of Miss USA 2016 went to Deshauana Barber, the first woman to win who was actively serving in the military at the time. At the time she told E! News, "I still am waiting for someone to pinch me, I feel like I'm dreaming, I cannot believe this is happening. I broke down during the crowning when they put it on my head and touched it and said, "Ah! it's really there. So, I'm shocked."

Miss USA will air live at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
