The dancers were selected from the audience at the beginning of the show, and they competed one-on-one, with the winner going on to the next round. They were judged by the level of audience applause, according to a noise meter. In addition to the prizes awarded, the winner was also given the last few seconds of the show to give "shout outs" to friends and family.

Sometimes, when two are tied with a number and one person is safe with the highest score and goes on, two people will have to go head-to-head.

The Third and Final Battle tells two dancers will dance solo in two rounds in two different beats and goes head-to-head. At the end, the audience decided who is the winner as, "The Top Dog of the 360" by looking at videotapes of the dancers.
