The Bad Salsa Group has won hearts at America's Got Talent with their unique dancing skills. They brought Bollywood to the stage, and combined it with Salsa. The group, compising of Indian farmer's daughter Sonali Majumdar, along with Maraju Sumanth from Kolkata, blew the judges away with their performance.

Sonali introduced herself as a farmer's daughter, who lived in a village near Bangladesh. She stated that her father earns only a dollar a day which does not suffice for food. She explained that in the tough times, her one escape was watching Bollywood movies. Talking about that becoming an inspiration for her to dance every single day, Sonali said she did not think her dream to perform on a platform such as America's Got Talent would be possible for her.

The duo picked Ranveer Singh's 'Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram-Leela's popular song 'Tattad Tattad' to bring Bollywood to ATG stage, along with a twist of Salsa. They performed air throws, continuous twirling, among other techniques, while doing Salsa on the song.

The host Terry Crews was left saying 'Oh My God' and asking the judges if they could believe what they just saw. Heidi Klum, who is one of the judges, called them the best that they have ever had. Meanwhile Sofia Vergara called them 'spectacular'. She added being in love with their outfit, among other things.

Howie Mandel said the duo 'schooled them'. He went on to tell people 'that's precision'. He also pointed out it was the first standing ovation of the night. He ended the speech by saying 'I Love You'. Terry later pointed out that the Bad Salsa Group got better after the auditions.

Maraju said that they have been practicing 8-10 hours a day with hopes of getting into hearts of viewers and judges. The video ended with both Sonali and Maraju giving their bright smiles.

America's Got Talent is currently in tis 15th season, and people have hopes that Bad Salsa Group could win the show this year. Sonali had previously won India's Got Talent season four, when she was only seven-year-old.

She has also been a part of Britain's Got Talent: The Champions. For the uninformed, Sonali has also been part of 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa'.
