NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans selected their 2017 cheerleaders in front of a near capacity crowd Wednesday evening at Wildhorse Saloon.
Titans Director of Cheerleaders called Wednesday 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 of our final candidates were well qualified to be Titans cheerleaders," Kinder said.
The squad had been trimmed from nearly 200 to 48 candidates during preliminary auditions held last month at Saint Thomas Sports Park.
The finalists spent the last few weeks rehearsing, while undergoing formal business interviews with Kinder.
A panel of celebrity judges helped narrow the field to the final squad of 27 ladies on Wednesday night.
The Titans cheerleaders will next conduct their own training camp later this off-season, photo shoots for their 2017-18 calendar and game prep for the upcoming season.
