Episode Summary

Ten Slam survivors square off in two five-team semifinals staged on different Smithsonian stages, with each team performing four poems. In one competition, New York pins its hopes on B. Yung and Britney, while Ft. Lauderdale looks to punch past an upstart Rochester team (in only its second year) with a daring poem written the night before about Jasmine's illness.
