LAS VEGAS (AP) -- An opera-singing Miss Wisconsin tops contestants in the first round of the Miss America talent competition in Las Vegas, while a swimsuit-clad Miss Utah scores honors in the lifestyle and fitness category.

Miss Wisconsin Laura Kaeppeler is taking home a $2,000 scholarship for her performance of "Il Bacio" during the Tuesday night preliminary. The talent portion is 35 percent of a contestant's preliminary score.

Miss Utah Danica Olsen earned a $1,000 scholarship after appearing in a Deaville Komplique swimsuit with gold and Swarovski crystal accents. The fitness category is 15 percent of a contestant's score.

Two more winners in each category will be selected during two more days of preliminary competition.

The final competition is Saturday at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
