It's going down in the bayou and the stakes just got higher.
Last night, 16 of the nation's top freestyle dancers gathered at the historic House of Blues in New Orleans, Louisiana to battle for victory at the Red Bull Dance Your Style USA semifinals. Now it's down to four, and tonight we'll find out who will be crowned the best in the United States and make their way to Johannesburg, South Africa to compete in the Dance Your Style World Final in December.
In true street dance battle fashion, everyone came prepared and brought their A-game, making the competition fierce at the highest level. Although each dancer gave the other a run for their money, the crowd has spoken and there can only be four.
Here are the final four dancers moving on to the final round:
