The themes of the total of thirteen ShowDance Standard performances varied somewhere between love, life circle, Mamma Mia, The Great Hunger, space and fiction. The performances, including the outfits and the music, were built to support the theme and vice versa.

There were two finalist couples from Poland: Kamil Kedra - Aleksandra Fron (Mamma Mia) and Stanislaw Wolyniec - Katarzyna Tunska (Interstellar). There were also two finalist couples from Russia: Anatoly Kupchik - Julia Koliagina (Medusa Gargona) and Andrey Motyl - Ekaterina Kim (Still Loving You). The other three finalists were Sean Smullen  - Aimie Leak, IRL (The Great Hunger), Steeve Gaudet - Marioara Cheptene, FRA (Piano Forte) and Valentin Lusin - Renata Lusin, GER (Avatar).

The final result:
1. Steeve Gaudet - Marioara Cheptene, FRA
