Miss Universe 2008 Live Updates

There are just 3 hours left before the final event of Miss Universe 2008. Many people are now looking for information about TV channels so that they can enjoy Miss Universe 2008 live. Good thing is that Miss Universe 2008 will be broadcast live in many countries in different TV channels. It is expected that this beauty pageant will be shown live in more than 180 countries.

Eighty contestants are expected to compete in the event[3] which will be broadcast and distributed globally via NBC in English and Telemundo in Spanish to TV outlets in more than 180 countries.

The final presentation show is on July 8, the dress rehearsal on July 13 and the live telecast on July 14. Most activities are being held successively in Ho Chi Minh City, Ha Noi, Da Nang, Hoi An, Ha Long and finally Nha Trang.

Jerry Springer, tabloid talk show host and host of NBC's America's Got Talent, and Melanie Brown, a.k.a. "Scary Spice", member of the UK pop group Spice Girls and host of TLC's The Singing Office, will present this year's competition. Lady GaGa, 22 year-old performer and songwriter, will perform.

So, NBC is the main channel that you can enjoy Miss Universe 2008 live. I found a press release in this regard and I am giving you a part of it here:

Donald J. Trump, NBC Universal and Paula M. Shugart, President, Miss Universe Organization, announced today that the 57th Annual MISS UNIVERSE® Competition will air live from Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa, Vietnam. The glamorous live event, featuring some of the world's most beautiful women, will air from the Crown Convention Center, on NBC and Telemundo this summer.

"Vietnam has shown unprecedented growth in recent years, both in the business and tourism sectors," said Paula M. Shugart. "This worldwide telecast will mark the first event of its kind to be centered in Vietnam which of course will have special significance to the U.S. audience. I am very happy to have the Miss Universe Pageant be the catalyst for such an historic event."

"UniCorp is delighted that we have reached an agreement with the Miss Universe Organization to host the MISS UNIVERSE® 2008 Pageant in Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa, Vietnam," says Chairman Tony Toan Nguyen. "We believe that the beauty, culture and hospitality of Vietnam will perfectly complement the pageant. We look forward to showing the contestants and the world our exciting, vibrant and picturesque country."

Well, if you are living in Asia then Hallmark is the channel for you. Until last year, the viewers in Asia could enjoy Miss Universe beauty pageant in Star World. This time, Star World is not broadcasting Miss Universe 2008 live in Asia. Instead, Hallmark has the rights for live broadcast in Asia. So, it does not matter if you live in India or China. Hallmark is the channel for you if you want to enjoy Miss Universe 2008 live. I just wish that Hallmark gave more promotion to this event. You know that Hallmark is a part of NBC and that is perhaps why they are broadcasting this event live.
