Second up to bat was ONF, and they came dressed to the nines with a James Bond concept. They showcased a routine with many different formations and impressed with their acrobatics and in-sync moves.

The third team to perform was Golden Child, and they had a fun cowboy theme that reminded everyone of an old Western movie. They started things off with a highly technical backflip move and they continued to wow throughout their entire performance. Next up was The Boyz, and they came dressed up as the comic book hero Spiderman. The coaches had them slated as strong contenders for the gold medal, and they lived up to those expectations with an awe-inspiring routine.

Fifth was UP10TION, and they came with a Tarzan theme. They had fire in their eyes as they stated they were determined to redeem the reputation of labelmates Teen Top, who came in last place in last year’s competition. The last team to perform was last year’s winners ASTRO, who brought on a theme embodying Elvis Presley. True to their status as reigning champions, ASTRO impressed with an amazing performance.
