While Miss Universe is all about the swimsuits, gowns, Q & A, and the candidates themselves, there’s always room for some form of entertainment to break the tension. Luckily, the pageant is bringing five musical talents. The best part? All of them are natives of New Orleans!
In an Instagram post, the organization announces the list of acts that will serenade on the night of the coronation. The caption reads “Dun Dun Dun [musical notes emoji] MEET OUR PERFORMERS!”.
These include the artists Big Freedia, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Yolanda Adams, Amanda Shaw, and Tank and the Bangas.

The search for the 71st Miss Universe will take place on January 15, Sunday, at the Ernst N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. By voting, you may help our representative, Celeste Cortesi in making the semifinals.
Vee De Serra is a go-getter and a writer driven by passion. When in doubt, Vee believes that "Life isn't fair but it is up to you make it one". As a city and a beach person, when the sun is out, expect Vee to spend hours getting lost in the concrete jungle or laying by the shoreline with both finishing the day by watching a beautiful sunset.
