World of Dance Season 2 episode 4 kicks off Tuesday, June 19 at 10 p.m. EDT, featuring the fourth round of qualifiers. During tonight's episode, talented dancers of all ages will once again take the stage to impress the judges, moving one step closer to the million-dollar grand prize. In last week's show, five of the six acts performing for the judges received scores earning them a spot in the upcoming duels. This week, six more acts will perform in hopes of moving on to the next stage of the competition.

If you aren't familiar with how the judging works on World of Dance, acts are assessed in five key areas: Performance, Technique, Choreography, Creativity and Presentation. Dancers can earn up to 20 points in each of these areas from a judge. Once all judges' scores are in, they are averaged, yielding the final score, which must be above 80 to stay in the competition.

As soon as tonight's show kicks off, we'll be adding live updates and recap information about who made it through the fourth night of qualifiers. In the meantime, if you missed last week's show, here's a rundown of all the teams who have made it through the qualifier rounds so far.
