The judging panel for Miss America just got a little more star-studded.

Zendaya has signed on to judge the 95th anniversary of the pageant, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

The pop star will be joining Brett Eldredge, snowboarding bronze medalist Amy Purdy and Taya Kyle, author and wife of the late U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle.

“It’s great to be part of a show that celebrates women who are in college or graduated, and striving to make the world a better place through their chosen platform, ranging from domestic violence and bullying to cancer research and female empowerment, while also embracing beauty and fashion,” Zendaya said in a statement.

“I remember watching Miss America as a kid, so it’s an honor to help celebrate the 95th anniversary of the competition and to help select the next Miss America,” she said.
