Miss USA 2020 : Info

Miss USA 2020, the 69th Miss USA pageant, was originally scheduled to be held in spring 2020 but it was postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The finale was later held on 9th November 2020 at the Exhibition Centre and the Soundstage at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee. Asya Branch of Mississippi was crowned Miss USA 2020 by her predecessor Cheslie Kryst of North Carolina at the end of the event finale. Asya bought Mississippi's first win at the Miss USA pageant and went on to represent the United States at Miss Universe 2020 where she placed in the Top 21.

Kim Layne of Idaho, Mariah Jane Davis of Oklahoma, Alexis Lete of Indiana and Kelly Hutchinson of Alabama were adjudged first, second, third and fourth runners-up respectively. The Top 10 also included Allyshia Gupta, Samantha Neyland, Olivia Pura, Gina Mellish, Andreia Gibau while the Top 15 also included Cierra Jackson, Alyssa Beasley, Mariah Clayton, Megan Renee Kelly, Victoria Olana (Fan vote winner) and Sthephanie Miranda. Imani Blackmon of Washington was awarded Miss Congeniality at the finale.

Akbar Gbaja-Biamila and Allie LaForce served as hosts, while Cheslie Kryst and Christian Murphy served as backstage commentators while Haley Reinhart performed. The competition marked the first year that a new crown made by jeweler Mouawad was used at Miss USA, effectively retiring the Mikimoto Crown.
