Former 'N Sync singer Lance Bass and New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire highlight the list of judges for next month's Miss America pageant in Atlantic City.

Joining them will be Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell; comedian and performer Mario Cantone; and Barbara Corcoran, an investor from ABC's entrepreneurial competition show "Shark Tank." Also on the panel are Carla Hall, co-host of ABC's food-and-talk show "The Chew," and Deidre Downs Gunn, an obstetrician and gynecologist who was the last Miss America to be crowned in Atlantic City.

Pageant officials announced the list of judges Tuesday.

The pageant will be broadcast live from Boardwalk Hall on Sept. 15. It had been held in Las Vegas the past six years before returning to New Jersey.
