The Miss USA 2014 pageant is underway at The Baton Rouge River Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. From the 51 total contestants entering the pageant, 15 semifinalists and then the 5 finalists will be chosen. Only one lady will walk away with the title and will represent the United States at the upcoming Miss Universe 2014 pageant.
The finale of the 63rd annual pageant will air live on Sunday, June 8 beginning at 8 p.m. EST through 11 p.m. on NBC. The show is expanding to three hours for the first time ever, with an additional hour of footage of the contestants in their home environments, “making for a more personal glimpse of the women competing for the Miss USA title,” the organization said.
