Voting ends at midnight on Tuesday.

The final auditions are scheduled for Tuesday from 7-9:30 p.m. at the rotunda in Mall of America. Fifty-four finalists are set to compete for a spot on the 35-member squad, the Associated Press says.

The new squad will be announced Wednesday on the Vikings' website, according to the squad's Facebook page.

The team held open auditions at the begining of April. A reporter for the Leader-Telegram auditioned last year and made the JV squad, and this year she tried out again. Read about her experience here.

The Minnesota Vikings and Fox Sports North teamed up to produce "MVC: Making The Team," which chronicles the experiences of rookies and veterans trying out for this year's team. Watch the latest episode by clicking here.
