NEW YORK (AP) - Rocker Bret Michaels and TV correspondent Natalie Morales are hosting this year's Miss Universe Pageant.
The Miss Universe Organization announced Tuesday that Michaels, the musician and reality TV star, and Morales, who reports for NBC's "Today," will be presiding when the pageant airs live from Las Vegas on August 23 on NBC.
The two-hour special will gather contestants representing more than 80 countries. They will compete in three categories: swimsuit, evening gown and interview.
Michaels was seen this spring as a contestant himself, emerging as the winner of NBC's reality competition "The Celebrity Apprentice."
