Titans Director of Cheerleaders called Sunday night's competition, sponsored by Price's Collision Centers, "extremely close" among the finalists.

"We had a really great pool of talent this year, and frankly, all 47 of our final candidates were well qualified to be Titans cheerleaders," Kinder said.

The squad had been trimmed from nearly 200 to 47 ladies during preliminary auditions held last month at Nissan Stadium.

The finalists spent the last few weeks rehearsing, while undergoing formal business interviews with Kinder.

A panel of celebrity judges that included Dianna Williams (from the hit Lifetime series "Bring It"), singer/song writer Michael Tyler, WKRN's Dawn Davenport, and award-winning producer Michael Knox helped narrow the field to 27 ladies on Sunday night.

The Titans cheerleaders will next conduct their own training camp later this off-season, photo shoots for their 2016-17 calendar and game prep for the upcoming season.
