Steve Harvey holds up the card showing the winners after he incorrectly announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez at the winner at the Miss Universe pageant Sunday, Dececember 20, 2015, in Las Vegas.

Despite last year's mishap, Steve Harvey will be returning to the Miss Universe stage as host of the show in 2017.

The competition, which will air on Fox on January 29, will take place in The Philippines, and model Ashley Graham has been announced as the backstage host.

Viewers of last year's pageant may remember Harvey's slip-up in mistakenly announcing the first runner-up, Miss Colombia, as the pageant winner. Realising his error, Harvey apologised and the right winner, Miss Philippines, was rightfully crowned.
