    LATIN POP BAND CAMILA JOINS THE 2014 MISS USA® COMPETITION MUSICAL LINEUP SUNDAY, JUNE 8 ON NBC (8-11 P.M. ET)

    NEW YORK, NY — June 4, 2014 — The Miss Universe Organization announces Latin pop band Camila will join the musical lineup for the 63rd annual MISS USA® Competition on Sunday, June 8 (8-11 p.m. ET) from The Baton Rouge River Center in Baton Rouge, La. Immediately following the international release of their new album, ELYPSE, the band will take the MISS USA stage for their first official public performance since the record’s launch on Wednesday, June 3. Camila’s set will be added to Sunday’s musical roster along with Florida Georgia Line and special guest Nelly, Marc Broussard, and The Dirty Dozen Brass Bands. Giuliana Rancic, co-anchor of “E! News,” and Thomas Roberts, MSNBC’s “Way Too Early” will host the competition.

    Soaring to the top of the charts in Mexico and beyond, award-winning composer, singer and producer Mario Domm created the leading Latin pop-rock band Camila in 2005 with guitarist Pablo Hurtado. Their two metric hit albums, Todo Cambió and Diamond certified Dejarte de amar, turned the group into one of the most successful Latin American bands of all time selling more than two million copies. Songs such as “Abrázame,” “Mientes,” and “Alejate de mi,” among others, have made them big winners in the industry. The album’s popularity brought them to win three Latin Grammy Awards and three Latin Billboard Awards coining them as one of the most awarded groups from Latin America for the last decade.

    Their third studio album ELYPSE marks a new chapter of success for Camila with the new hit single, “Decidiste dejarme.” The MISS USA telecast on NBC will be the first English speaking network the duo performs on marking a crossover for them domestically in the US.

    This year, fans will have the opportunity to save their favorite contestant during the evening gown competition through a Twitter save in order to secure a sixth spot in the final question round.

    Talent and Hosts Announced!

    FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE, NELLY, MARC BROUSSARD AND THE DIRTY DOZEN BRASS BAND HORNS SET TO PERFORM DURING THE 2014 MISS USA® COMPETITION AIRING JUNE 8 ON NBC (8-11 P.M. ET)

    GIULIANA RANCIC (“E! NEWS”) AND THOMAS ROBERTS (MSNBC’S “WAY TOO EARLY”) TO HOST SHOW WITH NEW THREE-HOUR FORMAT

    NEW YORK — May 28, 2014 — NBC, Donald J. Trump and Paula M. Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization, announced today that Florida Georgia Line, with special guest Nelly, and Marc Broussard will perform during the 63rd annual MISS USA® Competition airing Sunday, June 8 (8-11 p.m. ET) from The Baton Rouge River Center in Baton Rouge, La. Giuliana Rancic and Thomas Roberts team up to host the competition for the first time together as the show expands to three hours.

    The sharp contemporary country sounds of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley create Florida Georgia Line and have become the biggest country sensation of the decade. The superstar duo has skyrocketed since releasing four consecutive, multi-week #1 smashes in the US and Canada including the 6X PLATINUM “Cruise” which FGL will perform with music superstar Nelly during the MISS USA® swimsuit competition. “Cruise,” became an unstoppable crossover hit in 2013 and, eventually, the biggest selling digital country single of all time. The talented twosome will also perform their latest PLATINUM-certified hit, “This Is How We Roll” (featuring Luke Bryan), from their chart-topping Republic Nashville debut album HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES.

    Joining the musical line-up is singer-songwriter and Louisiana native, Marc Broussard. Since his critical breakthrough album ‘Carencro’, Broussard has been hailed as an old-school Southern soul singer with a rarefied gift and innate stylistic and emotional authenticity. The trademark “Bayou Soul” of Broussard will bring a mix of funk, blues, rock and pop which will match the distinct cultural Louisiana roots the MISS USA® show will feature. Additionally, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band Horns will add even more excitement to Broussard’s opening set when the group joins him for an ultimate high energy mashup and Mardi Gras party on stage. Broussard will release his new album, “A Life Worth Living” on July 29th.

    Talent

    MISS USA veteran Giuliana Rancic, co-anchor of “E! News,” co-host of E!’s popular “Fashion Police,” and star of her reality hit series “Giuliana and Bill,” returns to host the competition. Fresh from his hosting duties at MISS UNIVERSE®, Thomas Roberts (MSNBC’s “Way Too Early” and “Morning Joe” contributor) teams up with Rancic marking the first time the two take the stage together for the annual competition.

    MISS USA commentator Jeannie Mai also returns to take viewers behind the scenes to engage with contestants, talent and fans throughout the telecast. Mai is best known as host of Style network’s two-time Emmy Award-nominated makeover series “How Do I Look?” and co-host of the upcoming nationally syndicated daytime talk show “The Real.” She is also recognized for her fashion segments on NBC’s “Today” and The Insider.

    This year, viewers will get to know the 2014 Miss USA contestants better through an extended three-hour format. The additional hour will provide a never-before-seen look at the contestants in their home environments, making for a more personal glimpse of the women competing for the Miss USA title.
    Fans will also have the opportunity to save their favorite contestant during the evening gown competition through a Twitter save in order to secure a sixth spot in the final question round. Viewers can tweet using #SaveTheQueen along with a keyword that will be provided on the screen during the live telecast. Rules and information can be found on http://www.missusa.com/rules.
