GIULIANA RANCIC (E! NEWS) AND NICK JONAS (JONAS BROTHERS) TO HOST THE 2013 MISS USA(R) COMPETITION LIVE ON SUNDAY, JUNE 16 ON NBC

The Jonas Brothers Set To Perform

Jeannie Mai of Style Network's "Style Pop" Returns as Commentator

NEW YORK - May 21, 2013 - NBC, Donald J. Trump, and Paula M. Shugart, President of The Miss Universe Organization, announced today that Giuliana Rancic, co-anchor of "E! News," and Nick Jonas, Grammy-nominated American singer-songwriter, will host the 62nd Annual MISS USA(R) Competition airing live on NBC Sunday, June 16 (9-11 p.m. ET) from PH Live at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"We are excited to announce a veteran and a newcomer as hosts for this year's MISS USA Competition," says Shugart. "The diverse backgrounds of Rancic and Jonas in the entertainment industry will bring a new and exciting energy to the stage."

Rancic, who will return as host for the third year, is co-anchor of "E! News," co-hosts E!'s popular "Fashion Police" and is a mainstay on the network's biggest "Live From the Red Carpet" shows. She is also the executive producer/star of her hit Style Network reality show, "Giuliana & Bill."

Joining Rancic for the first time as co-host is Nick Jonas, American singer-songwriter, musician and actor. He is best known as one of the Jonas Brothers, the mega-popular pop-rock band formed with brothers Kevin and Joe. In addition to his hosting duties, Jonas will be joined by his brothers to perform during the MISS USA(R) Competition. The band recently returned from a three-year hiatus with the hit single "Pom Poms," which premiered at #1 on iTunes in 16 countries. The band spent the last year writing and producing their upcoming fifth album, which is scheduled for release under Jonas Enterprises later this year. The band kicks off their upcoming North American tour, presented by Huawei and Huawei W1, this July.

Returning to the MISS USA telecast is Jeannie Mai, best known from Style Network's "How Do I Look?" and recently launched "Style Pop" as a commentator. Mai will take viewers behind-the-scenes to engage with contestants, talent and fans throughout the telecast.

Contestants from all 50 states and the District of Columbia will be judged in three categories: swimsuit, evening gown and interview as they vie for the coveted title of Miss USA 2013. Nana Meriwether, Miss USA 2012, will crown her successor at the conclusion of the two-hour telecast.

Fans are now able to vote their favorite contestant into the semifinals at the MISS USA(R) Competition. Voting is taking place now through June 15 by logging on to www.missusa.com or voting through the vote icon on the official Miss USA Facebook page.

The MISS USA telecast is televised in approximately 90 countries and territories around the world and was one of the top social media trending topics during last year's show. For more information, visit www.missusa.com.
