Miss Universe took to Twitter on May 6, 2021 to announce the judges for its 69th edition, which will take place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Broward County, Florida, United States on May 16, 2021. The panel of judges will have eight female members.
It has yet to be confirmed if the eight women will be judges for the preliminary events only or for the coronation night also. Traditionally, there are different sets of judges but that might not be the case this time due to the new coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Mario Lopez and Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo will host the Miss Universe 2020 coronation night. Here is the list of the judges who will decide who will inherit the crown from Miss Universe 2019 Zozibini Tunzi:
