At the beginning of the episode, 2 dancers from last week are cut. At that point, the competition continues in the same format as last week, except this week reveals a new twist; when the females pick their partner, the males pick two dance styles. Each pair will dance twice, each time to a different style. This week, Brian, Mia, Nigel and Dan are the judges. Mary will take part in the choreography. The 10 dancers complete round 1 in the following pairs: Melissa and Artem (pop and quick step), Kamilah and Nick (tango and pop), Melody and Ryan (lyrical and fox trot), Destini and Jamile (quick step and hip hop) and Ashle and Blake (samba and lyrical). In round 2, 2 couples are put up for elimination. These couples then dance as individuals and the audience votes for who to save at the end of the show.
