Los Angeles and street dancing legend Tommy the Clown has teamed up with Caffeine TV to present the Battlefield Qualifiers dance competition. As documented in the movie Rize, Tommy the Clown created the clown/krumping style of dance that provided an outlet for many inner-city kids to partake in and give an alternative to gangs and violence. Tommy is also known for holding huge Battlezone dance tournaments with musical guests such as Snoop Dogg and other Los Angeles acts and for providing clown entertainment at birthday parties for children across the city.

The first Battlefield Qualifier event took place on May 16th featured 40 dancers from 4 fields of which 32 advanced to the 2nd round which is taking place on May 30th. Below are some of the highlights from the 1st round:
