Miss America 2007, the 80th Miss America, pageant, was held on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada on January 29, 2007, which was a Monday, making it the first time that the pageant was held on a weekday, rather than the traditional Saturday.
The pageant was broadcast live on CMT from the Theatre for the Performing Arts at the Aladdin Resort and Casino, only the second time that the pageant has been held outside Atlantic City.
At the conclusion of the final night of competition, outgoing titleholder Jennifer Berry crowned Lauren Nelson as her successor. Both titleholders are from Oklahoma, only the second occurrence of two consecutive winners from one state. The last time that two titleholders from the same state won in consecutive years was 1959-1960, when Mississippi did the honor.
