LAS VEGAS - The Latest on the Miss USA beauty pageant contest (all times local):

4 p.m.

The show has begun at the Miss USA contest in Las Vegas.

The three-hour beauty pageant will feature hosts Julianne Hough, Ashley Graham and Terrence J. The Backstreet Boys, Chris Young and Nervo will perform.

Steve Harvey made a cameo in a video at the start of the show, poking fun of the Miss Universe crowning that he botched in December.

But don't expect former pageant owner and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to appear.

He sold the organization in September following a falling out with broadcasting partners who cut ties with him after he made remarks that offended Mexicans.

A new Miss USA will be crowned Sunday night after a series of controversies last year with the beauty pageant organization, including a breakup with former owner Donald Trump and the mistaken crowning of Miss Universe.

Fifty-two contestants will participate in the 2016 Miss USA competition will be held at the T-Mobile Arena off the Las Vegas Strip. The Fox network will carry the broadcast at 7 p.m. EDT. Last year, the show aired on cable's Reelz network.

In addition to contestants representing each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia, the pageant also named a "Miss 52 USA." Alexandra Miller, a 26-year-old from Oklahoma City, got the most fan votes among a group of finalists chosen by the organization.

The winner of Sunday's pageant will compete in the Miss Universe contest.
