Premise: In what has become an annual tradition, CMT televises the search for the newest members of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleading squad for the 10th year. For the 2015 season, squad director Kelli Finglass and choreographer Judy Trammell must replace 13 veterans who have left the team. Former Cowboy cheerleader Melissa Rycroft assists Finglass and Trammell in judging the contestants, whom she also mentors through the intense training and dynamic dance sequences that help determine which recruits ultimately make the team. The women competing for their spot on the squad -- which includes wearing the coveted blue-and-white uniform -- this year include a former member of the USA gymnastics team and a biomedical engineer.
