And the final Texans cheerleader is...

HOUSTON Last week, Texans cheerleader coordinator Alto Gary selected her squad from the 42 finalists after weeks of tryouts. But one spot was left open for you, the fans, to pick. Gary selected four finalists to compete for the final opening on the squad.

Would it be Hayley, Ashley, Christina or Lindsey? All week, we posted video from their cheer routines and appeals to the voters, as well as photos of the four hopefuls.

And after more than 40,000 votes cast, the winner of the online vote adn the final spot was Lindsey.

"This is the best feeling of my life," said Lindsey after the big reveal Friday. "This has been my dream since I was a little girl."

As for the vote, Gary says it was a big success, and said the tally shot up by 20,000 once she posted it on Facebook.

"No matter where I went in town, they recognized me. They would run and tell me who they voted for. Everyone knew about it," said Gary. "As far as people knowing this and getting behind the program, the public did an awesome job."

And so here are your 2010 Houston Texans Cheerleaders!
