American's Got Talent will select Indian dance group Unreal Crew for Season 17 this week. They have previously won a competition in India called Dance India Dance, and now the AGT has allowed them to showcase their talents.
Dance group Unreal Crew originally hails from Jaipur, India, and specializes in a form of dancing called automation, which combines tutting with animation. Dance India Dance featured six group members in 2019, although only five are auditioning for American Idol.
In case you have never heard of tutting, it is a form of dance that involves moving the body into geometric shapes, usually creating 90-degree angles. In addition to being reminiscent of ancient Egyptian art, the visual style is also named after King Tut.
As choreographers, Wasim Belim and Altaf Madawat created dramatic and mesmerizing performances for the group that won Season 7 of DID in 2019. Besides Dance Plus 3 and India's Dancing Superstar, Forbidden Crew has also appeared on Dance Plus 3.
After winning the competition, the group told Bollywood Life that they were already celebrities in Rajasthan because of their shows. There were no secrets about our journey or struggles. When we won, everyone who has known our story cried, because we have been struggling for a long time.
