Not gonna lie, y’all, it was hard not to be a little heartbroken for some of these ladies while watching this new Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team clip.
We get to see a real behind-the-scenes look at what goes into the audition process and sadly with that, what happens when a hopeful doesn’t make the cut.
But we also get a glimpse at a few special hopefuls we’ll follow this season: a first-runner up to Miss America, a three-time returning auditionee, and a beauty whose family legacy depends on her entry onto the team.
Fun fact: did you know the girls learn 30 dance routines a summer? We can barely remember what we had for breakfast this morning … not kidding.
Season 12 of DCC: Making The Team is now unlocked on CMT.com and the CMT App, which means you can watch anytime you want, no login required until the new season kicks up at 10 PM ET April 2.
