The competition aired live from Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, where organisers said they took Covid-19 precautions to keep people safe, says People.

"It's been a fantastic weekend in Memphis. Got to witness the crowning of the new Miss Teen USA and tonight the crowning of Miss USA. Congratulations @asyadanielle I wish you the best year ahead," Zozibini captioned a video from the ceremony on Monday.
The public relations graduate, proudly represented the country wearing evening gown by Cape Town designer, Lenalisa.
