Things are tense in Miami as the Miss Universe 2014 pageant is underway. During the preliminary competition last night the beauty queens introduced themselves to the world honoring their roots with their national costumes. Some were successful and some were just really odd and had us scratching our heads. This portion of the show is always one of our favorites because it's where we can see the creativity and the imagination the designers have. It's also the part where each of the girls show where they came from and through art tell us a little bit about their the countries they are representing. Check out a preview of what we will see on Sunday night down below and tell us who your favorite girl is!

During the preliminary competition Telemundo personality Azucena Cierco was one of the judges along with Corinne Nicolas (President Of Trump Models Modeling Agency), Jeneine Doucette-White (NY Manager At "Access Hollywood"), Jimmy Ngyuen (blogger), Lloyd Boston (fashion enthusiast), Michelle McLean (Miss Universe 1992) and Tyler Tixier (Sales Team Member At Delta Air Lines). For the final telecast William Levy will be one of the judges and decide who takes home the crown. The "La Tempestad" actor will be joined by boxer Manny Pacquio, "Laguna Beach" star Kristin Cavallari, "Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Vanderpump and fashion journalist Louise Roe. Prince Royce and Nick Jonas are scheduled to perform during the broadcast that will air on Sunday, January 25 at 8pm ET/PT on NBC and Telemundo.
