Dance crew wins second season of NBC’s hit series ‘America’s Got Talent: The Champions’
India-based group took dancing to new heights and claimed ultimate title of world champion
Superfans representing all 50 states voted and crowned the India-based dance group V.Unbeatable as the second season winner of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” on Tuesday.
The group originally captivated audiences when appearing on season 14 of “America’s Got Talent.” After placing fourth, V.Unbeatable looked for a second chance at winning as one of the elite group of acts on “AGT: The Champions.”
They quickly wowed all four judges with their epic return and earned the Golden Buzzer from Howie Mandel, which sent them straight through to the finals.
Despite having more than 30 dancers in the crew, with each in-sync and high-energy acrobatic performance, V.Unbeatable lived up to their name and proved to be truly unbeatable.
“When it comes to winning talent, V.Unbeatable not only checks every box but can also jump and dance over them,” said Mandel on his Golden Buzzer act.

V.Unbeatable, originally named Unbeatable, was founded by Vikas and Om Prakash. After a horrible accident during a group rehearsal, in which Vikas was injured and passed away, the group renamed itself V.Unbeatable (for Vikas Unbeatable) in his honor and continued to pursue Vikas’ original dreams for the group.
“I loved V.Unbeatable from the minute I first saw them perform. They always give it everything, they perform from the heart, and they just keep getting better and better! Congratulations, you’re all incredible and I couldn’t be happier for you,” said executive producer and judge Simon Cowell.
Finishing in second place was Duo Transcend. The Utah-based trapeze artists first competed on “America’s Got Talent” during season 13 and wowed everyone with their breath-catching stunts.
Young violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa finished in third place and was able to touch the hearts of millions of people around the world with his story and gift. He first appeared on season 14 of “America’s Got Talent.”
