Dancers will have their name placed in a hat (one for leads, one for follows), then they will randomly be partnered up to whomever they got selected to dance. All dancers then will dance together 2 songs for the Semi Final Round. After the 2 songs are danced, audience will decide by applauses who their top 5 couples will move to the finals, happening right after.
