HIGHLIGHTS: Miss Universe 2019 coronation

MANILA, Philippines – Although less grand in scale, there's no denying the hype and excitement surrounding the Miss Universe 2019 pageant. A new queen will be crowned on Monday, December 9 (Sunday evening, December 8, in the United States), succeeding the Philippines' own Catriona Gray. 

Ninety women from across the globe are in Atlanta, Georgia, for the 68th edition of the competition. The coronation night happens at the Tyler Perry Studios. 

Will Miss Universe Philippines Gazini Ganados win it all and bring home the elusive back-to-back crown? Will we see another contestant with a sash factor win, or will a dark-horse candidate take everything home?
