This season began with three qualifying rounds. The first one was for the South region, which has NEVER produced a championship team on this show. The five teams that made it here qualified from auditions with the guest judge being Hok from the Season 3 champions, Qwest Crew.
1. Jungle Boogie (Stone Mountain, GA)- "Bounce" by Busta Rhymes
SOME OF THEIR MEMBERS INCLUDE: Raqi Carter, Codie Wiggins, Anthony Hart
THEIR INTENDED DANCE STYLE: Crankin'
Omarion was impressed, but he said it got clumsy towards the end. Lil' Mama agreed with his comments and JC Chavez liked their energy.
2. Ghost (Houston, TX)- "Android Porn" by Kraddy
SOME OF THEIR MEMBERS INCLUDE: Holly Austin, Pat Garrett
JC liked that they worked on their dancing levels, but didn't like that they did a tracing technique twice in their routine and said the routine overall was a bit slow. Omarion thought the routine wasn't new to him. Lil' Mama agreed with both of them.
3. X-treme Motion (Houston, TX)- "She Ain't Got..." by Letoya Luckett
SOME OF THEIR MEMBERS INCLUDE: LaTrecia Mallet

JC said they got on a roll when they starting grooving; the other two judges agreed.
5. Royal Flush (Atlanta)- "Wasted" by Gucci Mane w/ Plies
SOME OF THEIR MEMBERS INCLUDE: Jared James, Aaron James
