Posted by Ryan Cardinal on April 20, 2011 – 11:04 pm

Fans have been able to vote for the last week or so for who they think should make the 2011-12 Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders.  The selection process wrapped up last night at Mall of America where the MVC held their final auditions.  Fans were obviously able to attend the event live and they also had the option to watch live on vikings.com.

And then, today at 6 p.m. CST right here on vikings.com, the 34 women who made the team will be announced right.  So, log back on tonight and see which lucky ladies made the team.

In the meantime, check out this video that recaps the 2011 Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders Semi-Final Swimsuit Competition which recently took place at Pantages Theatre in Minneapolis as a part of the audition process to make the team.

UPDATE – We were able to inform all of the girls who made and didn’t make the team by early afternoon, so we jumped the gun a bit and announced the squad, which you can view here.
