Hosted by ABC's Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars") and Chris Harrison ("The Bachelor"), the 91st anniversary of Miss America had the ladies from each state looking pretty, poised and prepped. The 2012 Miss America Pageant aired live from the Planet Hollywood Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
At the end of the night, Miss Wisconsin Laura Kaeppeler was crowned this year's winner of the Miss America Pageant—making the Badger State very proud.
"2012 Miss America Pageant" aired live Saturday, January 14, at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
