The fourth dance was called Like a Machine. It was a more upbeat, and fast song with all women. All of the women were in black spandex and a red shirt; it was almost scandalous. This music was by David Guetta.

The final piece of the first half was called Venomous. It was a very dark, almost mysterious piece, especially with all the dancers dressed in black. In this piece at one point there was a man in the middle of the circle, with chords attached to his waist, being held by everyone outside the circle. Then when he was pulled in the different directions, the chords supported him so he never hit the ground. This music was by Plastikman, Biosphere and Jonsi.

The fifth piece of act II was called Regret. It started off with girls passing on a rumor, and then they got up and danced.
