LAS VEGAS, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Hollywood couple William Baldwin and Chynna Phillips have been tapped to be judges of the 2010 Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas, organizers said.

Donald J. Trump, NBC and Paula M. Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization, announced Wednesday that Criss Angel, Sheila E, Tamron Hall, Evan Lysacek, Chazz Palminteri, Jane Seymour and Niki Taylor are also to be part of the judging panel.

The event is to be broadcast live Aug. 23 from Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Rocker Bret Michaels and Natalie Morales, NBC's "Today" show co-host and correspondent, are to serve as co-hosts of the pageant.

"When you combine the world's most beautiful women, bikinis, a rock star, and a panel of top celebrity judges, you have a recipe for success," Trump said in a statement. "The Miss Universe pageant is a worldwide phenomenon and you won't want to miss this show."
