Miss Universe 2020 will be the 69th edition of the Miss Universe competition, to be held on May 16, 2021 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, United States. Zozibini Tunzi of South Africa will crown her successor at the end of the event.

Background

Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, the host venue of the Miss Universe 2020 competition.

Location and date

On March 3, 2021, the Miss Universe Organization announced that the competition would be held on May 16, 2021 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, United States. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the competition was postponed from fall/winter 2020 to spring 2021. This will be the third time in the history of the competition in which the event will be held after the calendar year has ended; this previously occurred during Miss Universe 2014 and Miss Universe 2016, when both were held in January of the following year.[1][2] The 2020 edition being held in May of the following year makes it the latest edition in the competition's history.[3][4][5]
