Watch 2017 Miss Universe Competition Live Online: How To Find Streaming Video In The U.S., Philippines, And Latin America Plus How To Vote Online

Viewers who want to watch the 2017 Miss Universe competition live online will get plenty of chances to follow along through streaming video — including viewers in Latin America and those waking up early to watch in the Philippines.

Viewers will also get a chance to actually have a say in the competition, with live online voting enabled for this year’s competition (a link to the live Miss Universe voting can be found below).

The competition will be seen on Sunday evening for viewers in the United States and Latin America, but because the Miss Universe will take place on the other side of the globe in Manila, Philippines, it will actually take place early on Monday morning. So that can make it a bit tricky for viewers back in the Philippines to see who succeeds native Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.

There will be 86 nations competing for the title of Miss Universe 2017, and this year the competition will have a top 13 finalists instead of the 12 originally planned. And the viewers will have a direct say, with cues throughout the show to vote during specific rounds — the swimsuit competition, the evening gown competition, the final question, and after the final look. Voting will only be open during the Eastern and Central Time Zone viewing (7 p.m. ET/12 a.m. GMT/8 a.m. in the Philippines).

“The online votes will be as if there is a 7th judge sitting there,” said chief Paula Shugart, head of the Miss Universe Organization.

Viewers who watch the 2017 Miss Universe competition live online will also see if this year’s final can match the drama of last year when host Steve Harvey accidentally called out the wrong name for the winner before correcting himself in front of millions of voters. Harvey will again be back to host along with model Ashley Graham, with performances from Flo Rida and Boyz 2 Men.
