In this Aug. 25, 2014 file photo, Vanessa Williams arrives at the 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. The Miss America Organization, Dick Clark Productions and the ABC television network announced Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015, that they are bringing back the actress and singer to serve as head judge for the 2016 competition. Williams won the title in 1984 but resigned after Penthouse magazine published sexually explicit photographs of her taken several years earlier.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Here she comes, the next Miss America, and she'll even have the pageant's traditional theme song playing in the background.

Miss America 2016 will be crowned Sunday night in the pageant's nationally televised finale including the return of the pageant's theme song with the line "There she is, Miss America," and the return of one of the most famous women ever to wear the crown — and to give it up.

Actress and singer Vanessa Williams is returning to the pageant as head judge for the first time in more than three decades since she resigned the title amid a nude photo scandal.

The "Miss America" song, made famous by longtime pageant host Bert Parks, returns after a five-year absence due to legal wrangling over rights to its use.
