A bhangra dance troupe from Coventry have beaten off stiff competition from thousands of hopefuls to make it through to the semi-finals of TV talent show, Got To Dance, presented by Davina McCall.
Bhangra Heads is made up of a gang of young dancers from Coventry. The talented youngsters went down a storm with the panel of celebrity judges which included West End star, Adam Garcia, Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, and Ashley Banjo who was part of the dance group which went on to win Britain’s Got Talent last year, Diversity. The Bhangra Heads impressed the judges with their moves and walked away with 3 gold stars for their effort.
The first live semi-final is due to take place next Sunday night, January 24th, on Sky1. Bhangra Heads are part of the first batch of 6 acts to perform at the next week’s semi-final. Only two acts will be chosen each week by viewer votes to go all the way to the grand final.
Bhangra Head group member, 19-year-old Sumeet-Pal Singh Panesar said, “We’ve been rehearsing whenever we can and it would be great if we were picked to go further in the competition.”
Also battling it out to win the £100,000 first prize are Junior hip hop champions, Jukebox Juniors, Cardiff based Jazz group Eclipse, 11-year-old frees style dancer Emily Crow and ballet dancer Matthew Koon who are all amongst the final 18 acts through to the semi-final stage.
