Inside the illustrious nightclub, the crowd anxiously awaited the competition as DJ Forbes kept the house bumping to hot beats like Enrique Iglesias’ “I Like It.” The always sexy Studio 54 dancers kicked off the competition with a red-hot routine to Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite,” and Studio 54’s own DJ Loczi rocked the mic as the competition’s fun and witty host. Loczi introduced the Miss Knockout contestants as they each took to the stage, strutting their stuff, dancing to the music and waving to fans in the crowd. The sexy vixens glowed with their long, batting eyelashes and glitter-covered bodies as the glamorous girls each answered a question asked by Loczi.

The final decision was not an easy one as special guest judges, including Vegas Minute’s Danielle Demski, tallied up their scores. The audience enthusiastically cast their votes for “People’s Choice.” Lucky ladies Donyelle Browne, Angela Shih, Mariah Nieslanik, Lindsay Grieshaber and Tracy Wilson were announced as the finalists to move on to Miss Knockout’s grand finale competition on March 31 where they will have the opportunity to compete for the official Miss Knockout title, a $5,000 prize, an official contract with MGM Grand and a VIP party with their friends at Studio 54 after every boxing match. Shih took away the People’s Choice award and gave the crowd an ecstatic, cheerleader-like high-kick to display her excitement and gratitude.
