The other VIPs are actor, producer and writer William Baldwin; percussionist and drummer Sheila E; MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall; 2010 Olympic figure skating champion and Dancing With the Stars finalist Evan Lysacek; Oscar-nominated actor Chazz Palminteri, who recently starred in A Bronx Tale at The Venetian; singer and actress Chynna Phillips; Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress Jane Seymour; and supermodel Nikki Taylor.

“When you combine the world’s most beautiful women, bikinis, a rock star and a panel of top celebrity judges, you have a recipe for success,” said The Donald early today in a media release. “The Miss Universe Pageant is a worldwide phenomenon, and you won’t want to miss this show!"
“We look forward to hosting Monday’s 2010 Miss Universe Pageant at Mandalay Bay,” said Jim Murren, chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International. “The Mandalay Bay team, and the larger MGM Resorts family, stands ready to deliver a stellar event for all of the participants and for the worldwide audience.”

Additionally, John Legend & The Roots will perform during the evening gown competition, and during the swimsuit competition, Cirque du Soleil’s Viva Elvis will perform a medley of songs from the hit spectacular presented nightly at Aria in MGM’s CityCenter.
2009 Miss Universe Stefania Fernandez will crown her successor at the conclusion of the live broadcast. During her reign, she has traveled around the world as an advocate for HIV/AIDS education and awareness. The new Miss Universe will continue this work throughout her reign.
