After a month of intense training and advancing past preliminary auditions, 48 candidates will compete to earn a final spot on the 27-person squad.
The event is open to the public and will include an opening number choreographed by international dance star Bradley Johnson, who was featured on ABC's hit show "Dance Wars" and is currently making a splash in Japan as a dancer for Asian pop superstar, Toho. The night also will feature a performance by country music recording artist Adam Warner, who performs the Titans' signature game day song, "Welcome to the South."
The final 27 women will be selected by a number of celebrity judges from various elements of entertainment, including R&B singer Taj George, head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders Tara Battiato, singer and radio host Chuck Wicks, award-winning producer Michael Knox, country music legend Lee Greenwood, and Executive Director of the Miss Tennessee USA and Miss Mississippi USA pageants and former Miss Tennessee USA, Kim Greenwood.
"Each year the competition gets better and the women are even more talented," said Titans Director of Cheerleaders and Mascot Entertainment Stacie Kinder. "In celebrating the Tennessee Titans' 20th season, we expect this year's cheerleaders to be the best ever."
