We have a new Miss USA!
On Sunday, Steve Harvey got a break from the pageantry world as cohosts Julianne Hough and Terrence Jenkins hosted Miss USA — and they even announced the right name!
During the competition, not only did Ashley Graham give viewers a peek behind-the-scenes to show us what goes on backstage at pageants, but the Backstreet Boys performed both As Long As You Love Me and I Want it That Way!
But the most important moment of the night came when the final three ladies — Miss Hawaii, Miss Georgia, and Miss District of Columbia — took the stage to find out the new winner!
Unsurprisingly, Miss District of Columbia Deshauna Barber took the crown as both the crowd and judges seemed to adore her from the start! Miss Hawaii was named the runner-up and Miss Georgia was the second runner-up.
Soooooooo – I was a few months early with my announcement and forgot “District of”. ├░┼╕┬ñΓÇ¥├░┼╕┬ñΓÇ¥├░┼╕┬ñΓÇ¥

The comedian of course also made sure to send out some congrats Barber’s way:
While we couldn’t be happier for Deshauna, our other favorite moment of the show was of course the boys of BSB performing as they helped the ladies flaunt their stuff on stage (below)!
What did you think about the Miss USA pageant?!
