The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders kicked off their 2013 auditions Sunday, and after more than 200 hopefuls tried more, there are just 36 finalists, plus returning veterans, that will compete in final auditions Wednesday

After more than six hours of preliminary auditions Sunday at the Falcons' training facility in Flowery Branch, Ga., there are just 34 finalists who will compete alongside returning Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders veterans during Wednesday's finals.

Auditions began Sunday morning with more than 200 ladies from around Atlanta learning a short routine and performing it in front of a panel of judges. A first round of cuts knocked the number down around 100. The ladies then went back and learned more of a routine, which included adding their own twist to a few steps, and performed onced again in front of the judges.

The 36 finalists chosen Sunday will go through an interview process Monday and then compete against returning veterans Wednesday night.

Final auditions will be streamed live on beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET.
