The days leading up to the 2016 Miss America Pageant are dwindling and it’s possible to vote for your favorite contestant on social media to be named America’s Choice with the hashtag #MissAmericaVote. The girl will immediately integrate the TOP 15. Miss America 2016 will be held in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Sunday, September 13, 2015.
But the music they’ll compete to that evening will be Nick Jonas’s choice. He is the Music Curator for the 95th Anniversary broadcast. That means he’ll personally select the songs for the Swimsuit and Evening Gown competitions, as well as for the women’s opening introductions, and be in Boardwalk Hall that night to explain the thought behind his picks.
“I’ve actually had a weird history with pageants, and it goes back pretty deep,” he tells Yahoo TV with a laugh. Indeed Jonas was Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo’s boyfriend during two years. They announced that they broke up in june. He was also a performer at Miss Teen USA in 2007, and during Swimsuit at Miss USA in 2013 (which Nick also co-hosted with Giuliana Rancic).
