Emmy(R) Award winner Julianne Hough was today announced as co-host and creative producer of the 2016 MISS USA(R) Competition. Hough will join Emmy(R) Award Nominee Terrence "J" Jenkins on stage this Sunday, June 5 (7:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX from the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

A true triple-threat, Hough is known to audiences around the world for her success as an actress, dancer and singer in film, television and on stage. The Emmy Award-winning choreographer's role as creative producer, through her production company Canary House Productions, will help evolve the telecast to feature a more holistic look at each incredible woman's life.

"Julianne is an outstanding woman who embodies all that Miss USA celebrates: strong, successful, confident, and generous," said Paula M. Shugart, President, The Miss Universe Organization. "We are thrilled that she has joined us to help shape our evolution both on-air and behind-the-scenes."

In addition to her successful career as a performer, Hough supports a wide range of philanthropic causes, including her work with Kind Campaign to empower girls to become confident, beautiful women and to eradicate girl against girl bullying. Hough's range of charitable affiliations including those that serve women and girls align with The Miss Universe Organization's work to create and advance opportunities for women around the world while encouraging them to embody the company's mission of being Confidently Beautiful.

"I admire and share The Miss Universe Organization's commitment to celebrating young women for more than just their physical beauty and I feel fortunate to be a part of encouraging and uplifting them to make a positive difference in the world," says Hough. "I'm also excited to contribute what I've learned in over a decade in front of the camera and behind the scenes as a performer and choreographer on live television to the Miss USA broadcast."

As previously announced, Ashley Graham joins as backstage host. Backstreet Boys and Chris Young are set to perform during the can't-miss program.
