Miss USA 2008 Beauty Pageant

The Miss USA beauty contest has been held annually since 1952 to select the United States entrant in the Miss Universe pageant. The Miss Universe Organization operates both pageants, as well as Miss Teen USA.

Miss USA 2008, the 57th Miss USA beauty pageant, will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 11, 2008. At the conclusion of the final night of competition, outgoing titleholder Rachel Smith will crown her successor. The winner of the pageant will represent the United States at the Miss Universe 2008 pageant held in Vietnam.

The venue is the Theatre for the Performing Arts, a 7,000 seat theater located in the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino which was also the location of the Miss Universe 1991, 1996 and Miss America 2006-2008 pageants. This is the first time that the Miss USA pageant will be held in Nevada.

Donny and Marie Osmond will host the pageant for the first time and Finger Eleven will perform their single Paralyzer.
