Women representing 90 countries competed on stage in swimsuit and evening gown on Friday, Dec. 6, 2020, at Atlanta’s Marriott Marquis. The Preliminary Competition will determine the Miss Universe finalists announced during the live event. Prior to the Preliminary Competition, the Miss Universe selection committee met with the contestants to understand each woman’s accomplishments and aspirations during individual interviews.
A Miss Universe tradition, the National Costume Show featured the 90 contestants in costumes that best represent their countries. The annual event proved to be one of the most popular, fun-filled opportunities for contestants to share costumes that range from traditional to humorous, to inspiring, each making its own unique statement.
