The 52 contestants won’t be the only talent taking the stage at this year’s Miss USA competition. 

The Miss Universe Organization announced the official hosts and musical performers for the 2016 pageant on Thursday. 

Terrence “J” Jenkins will be co-host of the show, along with boundary-breaking model Ashley Graham, who will be backstage host. 

The Backstreet Boys and Chris Young will both perform as the contestants strut their stuff during the competition rounds in front of a panel of judges, which will include Joe Zee, Ali Landry and former Miss USA Crystle Stewart.
