AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - The Detroit Pistons dance team Automotion will hold their final round of auditions in the first ever Automotion Audition Finals event sponsored by WRIF-FM radio, on Thursday, July 29th at 7:30 p.m. at The Crofoot Ballroom in downtown Pontiac. Admission to the Automotion Audition Finals is FREE and open to the public (18 and older), with a cash bar available.

“The finals event gives fans an opportunity to witness the audition process first hand,” said Automotion dance team director Rebecca Girard. “Fans who attend are in for an evening of true Pistons entertainment, fun and excitement. For the finalists, performing in front of an audience will be a treat regardless of if they make the team or not.”

The event will feature 40 finalists who have survived the team’s audition process, narrowing down the approximate 150 candidates who began the week. All 40 finalists will perform a choreographed dance together to open the show, then candidates will perform again later in the show, in groups of six, where they will be critiqued by a panel of celebrity judges which includes the reigning Miss USA, Rima Fakih, Pistons legend Rick Mahorn and Meltdown from WRIF-FM. The announcement of the 15-member team will be made at the end of the show.

In addition to the finalist performances, special appearances will be made by the Detroit Pistons Drumline, Pistons Spare Tires and local rock band Wilson.

Showing their support will be a collection of celebrity guests from the Detroit Pistons.

Automotion members will serve as ambassadors of the Detroit Pistons and will represent the organization both on and off the court for the 2010-2011 season. Automotion team members are required to dance during every Pistons home game and to represent the organization throughout the year at various team and charity functions.
