Each candidate performed an individual dance to impress the judges. To get some practice and advice, some rookies were sent to Kitty Carter’s dance studio.

After the girls performed their solos, rookies and veterans were mixed into groups and sent to the field to be judged via the monstrous screen at Dallas Cowboys stadium. The judges have mixed feelings about which veterans and rookies look the best on the screen and should move on to training camp.

At the end of the episode, DCC director Kelli McGonagill Finglass announces the rookie candidate that received the fan voted spot into training camp along with the rest of the finalists.
