3- B-boy crew Battle
Popping Judges started show with their performance. First performance was awesome and cheered by crowd!
After that 1 vs. 1 elimination round was conducted. Surprisingly, there were few girls in competition too!

Star of SHOW was 'POCKET' from MORNING OF OWN Crew. Final battle was between Morning of Own and Drifterz Crew.
