Team MJ5, named after the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, bagged the title of India’s Dancing Superstar at the dance reality show’s grand finale on Saturday night
For the finale, MJ5, a group of boys from Delhi, competed with four other finalists – Akshay Pal, Padmini and Debasish, Loyola Group and Palden and Khyati, to win the IDS trophy and a cash prize of Rs.50 lakh on the Star Plus show. A much deserved winner, the MJ5 group always managed to enthrall viewers with their creative performances, unique styles and visually stunning dance forms.
Their happiness knew no bounds when they were announced as the winners – they jumped with joy and hugged each other to celebrate their victory. The grand finale was graced by Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, who came to promote their forthcoming film Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara!, slated to release Aug 15.
Judged by choreographers Ashley Lobo, Geeta Kapur and Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh, the show was launched April 27. It was hosted by TV actors Aishwarya Sakhuja and Ravi Dubey.
Riteish, for whom the show marked his first tryst with the small screen, also added some Bollywood ‘tadka’ to the finale by grooving to some of his popular tracks.
