Steven Tyler To Judge Miss Universe 2013 Pageant

Steven Tyler has been named the head judge at the upcoming Miss Universe pageant. The ceremony goes down at Moscow's Crocus City Hall on November 9.

Ninety women from all over the world are competing to take the crown from Olivia Culpo, who was crowned Miss Universe last year.

Tyler is not expected to perform at the event, although Panic! at the Disco, currently on a European tour in support of their album Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!, will perform.

Melanie Brown, formerly of the Spice Girls, hosts the proceedings along with MSNBC host Thomas Roberts. Andy Cohen, who hosted last year, has boycotted the event in protest of Russia's anti-homosexuality laws.

The event will be broadcast in America on NBC. Producers predict that it will be seen by over one billion viewers the world over.
