The AKAs kicked off the step show with an 80’s hip-hop theme geared in Adidas jumpsuits. They performed to the rhythms of Run DMC and "Supersonic."
Next, the Deltas, dressed as secret agents in crisp suits with matching red ties and vests grasped the audience with their performance to the theme "Delta Impossible." The Zetas then escaped from the "Zetasylum" in hospital gowns, quickly disrobing revealing blue tees, khakis and boots, paying tribute to the fraternities in the Pan. Then, the fraternities took the stage. The Kappas dressed in white shirts, candy-striped ties, and khakis performed to the theme of "Kappa Heaven." Phi Beta Sigma had a "Sigma Reunion" as they stepped to a mixture of crunk music and smooth R&B songs. The Omegas then took the audience to "Boot Camp" dressed in bulldog tees and army fatigues. Next, the Alphas stepped out of an "Ice Cold" fridge, and performed donned in black shirts and slacks, gold ties and fedora hats. Finally, the Iotas finished off the step show with a comedic parody about waiting in financial aid and housing. First place was won by Alpha Kappa Alpha followed by Delta Sigma Theta, and Zeta Phi Beta. Kappa Alpha Psi won first place for the fraternities, followed by Omega Psi Phi, and Phi Beta Sigma.

Before the first step was executed the crowd was introduced to their "Queen to Be." All in all, they turned in an amazing performance and left the stage to a standing ovation. There was no question in anyone’s mind that they had just witnessed a first place effort, and they were right! LaKeshia Hayes from Shreveport said, "They had the best show of every organization who stepped tonight, even the Greeks could learn from them." Last and most certainly not least were the defending champs and world renown steppers, the brothers of Kappa Kappa Psi. They entered the stage with the help Lil Wayne’s "Fireman," putting on a show. They also made the crowd laugh by poking fun at the fires in Pinchback and a campus out of water. They couldn’t put out Pinchback’s fire, because Grambling was out of water. But they didn’t leave the stage without giving the ladies what they love so much, the "Looseneck." "I love KK Psi, especially the light skinned skinny one [Eric], he always makes you feel like he’s looking directly
