The finals will involve no planned choreography. They have to just dance to the rhythm of the music. The dancers will face off in thrilling one-on-one battles. The winner will be whoever wows the crowd.

A man was seen dancing and then throwing himself onto two basins on the ground. Twitter user Bokamoso shared the now-viral video on the social media platform. It received mixed reactions from Mzansi social media users. Some MoPedi folk denied the dance originated from their tribe and said they have never seen it before.
