Auditions for the Detroit Lions cheerleading squad took place at Ford Field on March 11, with finals taking place on Monday. The three-round elimination process requires all of the hopefuls to audition – even those who were members of the 2016 team.

Following a short introduction, the hopefuls were put in groups of 5-6 and given around 30 seconds of free-style dance time to show off their moves.

Last year’s squad consisted of 28 members. This year’s edition of the Lions cheerleaders will be announced later this year.
