Indian dance team that wowed judges with ‘Marana Mass’ wins ‘America’s Got Talent’


The team received a standing ovation from the judges.

Remember V.Unbeatable, the dance troupe whose performance of ‘Marana Mass’ by Petta on American’s Got Talent: The Champions Season 2 left the judges (and the audience) amazed and impressed? They were crowned the winners of the show on Monday.

The final saw the top 10 performers narrow down until just two finalists remained – V. Unbeatable and Duo Transcend. In the intense and emotional few moments before host Terry Crews announces the final results, members of the dance troupe can be seen holding hands with their eyes closed in anticipation. One of the children in the group – a girl – is in tears awaiting the final verdict.

And as Terry announces their names, the stage, judges and audience all erupt in celebration. Some members of V. Unbeatable drop to the floor, while others jump up and hug, as the judges – Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and Alesha Dixon – give them a standing ovation.

An emotional crew member gave thanks profusely, adding that the victory “meant the world” to the troop.

The winner of America’s Got Talent: The Champions is decided based on public vote from across the United States.

Before the results, the 10 finalists performed one last time. V. Unbeatable chose ‘Tattad Tattad’ from Bollywood movie Goliyon ki Rasleela Ram Leela and teamed up with Travis Barker, drummer of the rock band Blink-182 who was on live drums for their performance. The performance once again left the judges in awe, ending with a standing ovation.

Watch it here.

All members of V. Unbeatable come from financially difficult backgrounds. The V in the name stands for Vikas Gupta, a former member of the team who died in 2013 while practicing a stunt for a performance. He was paralyzed from the neck down and died after a few weeks. While the group initially disbanded after this tragedy, they reunited and added the V in front of their troupe’s name in honor of Vikas.

The team also participated in America’s Got Talent Season 14 last year, where they came in fourth.
