ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- The next Miss America will be crowned Sunday night as the pageant returns to on the boardwalk in Atlantic City, N.J. - the place where it all began in 1921.

The nationally televised pageant finale will select Miss America 2014.

She will succeed the current title-holder Mallory Hagan. Her reign is being cut short because the pageant left Las Vegas, where it had been held the past six years and where a winner was selected each January.

The pageant pits 53 contestants - one from each state, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands - in swimsuit, evening gown, talent and interview competitions.  

The winner will be crowned at Boardwalk Hall around 11 p.m. Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands - in swimsuit, evening gown, talent and interview competitions.
