Do you have the bumps and grinds of Tempest Storm? The charm and appeal of Bettie Page? Then maybe you have what it takes to be crowned Miss Viva Las Vegas!

The BURLESQUE COMPETITION at VLV has become a favorite event of the weekend. Our anonymous panel of burlesque experts will choose the first 4 finalists. The competitors will choose 1 more. Then our on-line audience will vote and choose the final 5 finalists.

These 10 finalists will advance to the gorgeous stage of The Orleans Showroom and compete to become Miss Viva Las Vegas!

Miss Viva Las Vegas is a competition in which top burlesque dancers compete for the title Miss Viva Las Vegas. The best dancer is one that represents the spirit of Viva Las Vegas, and the sexy and glamorous art of the striptease. Regarded as one of the top burlesque titles in the world today, Miss Viva Las Vegas is an edge-of-your-seat burlesque competition held in the flashiest city in America!


We will no longer be employing the applause-o-meter but instead going with a panel of judges who are well respected and knowledgeable about burlesque. The panel will be made public prior to the event.

We value and appreciate all of the performers at VLV and will continue to find ways to improve our methods and create a positive experience for everyone who performs at and attends VLV.
