The 2012 Miss America Pageant goes down this weekend in Las Vegas -- but the competition is already underway!

The 53 contestants representing the 50 stated, D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands all hit the stage at the Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino for the past two nights for the preliminary awards.

The women went head-to-head in Talent and Lifestyle &Fitness, where they showed off their fit bodies in bikinis.

Last night, Miss Oklahoma took home a $2,000 scholarship for winning Talent (center), while Miss Texas nabbed $1,000 for Lifestyle & Fitness (left).

There's one more round of prelims tonight before Saturday's big event, which will be judged by Kris Jenner, Teri Polo, Lara Spencer and Mark Ballas.

Check out all the contestants above. Who are you rooting for?
