- Ranveer Singh wished the group before the finale
It's a proud moment for India and for dance group V Unbeatable, who won the second season of America's Got Talent: The Champions on Monday (Tuesday in India). V Unbeatable, who trended for days after appearing for the first time on America's Got Talent last year and securing the fourth place in the finale, featured in headlines once again - this time for winning the season 15 of the reality show. Upon winning the competition, judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Alesha Dixon and Howie Mandel, as well as the audience gave V Unbeatable a standing ovation. V Unbeatable delivered a mind-blowing performance by dancing to Ranveer Singh's song Tattad Tattad from Bollywood film Ram-Leela. The dance group's exhilarating stunts and musician Travis Barker's solo drum performance behind them made the whole act mesmerising.

V Unbeatable comprises 29 dancers from Mumbai. ICYDK, the group was originally named Unbeatable. However, when one of their team members (Vikas) died following a horrible accident, the group changed its name to V Unbeatable in his honour. Before America's Got Talent, the group has also featured Indian dance reality shows like Dance Plus 4 and India Banega Manch.
Before the finale, actor Ranveer Singh boosted the spirit of V Unbeatable and gave a massive shout-out to the dance group. For those who don't know, V Unbeatable got the golden buzzer bonus last year by performing to the track Tattad Tattad from Ranveer's 2013 film. Judges Simon Cowell, Julianne Hough, Howie Mandel, Gabrielle Union and guest judge Dwayne Wade (married to Gabrielle Union) were floored by their incredible performance in one of the episodes of the season 14.
In a video message (shared by V Unbeatable on their official Instagram page), Ranveer could be heard saying: "I am very happy that V Unbeatable have made it to the finals of America's Got Talent. This is unprecedented. I'd like to give my best wishes to the troupe. I just want to say that whatever you have achieved on the world stage is unprecedented. To do what you guys have done on the world stage in such a spectacular fashion, you have won the hearts of the entire nation."
"We are so proud of you. We love you for your dedication, commitment and honesty. Keep it going till the finals. Put in all your energy and perform with your hearts and bring it home. C'mon V Unbeatable," he added.
