Remo D’Souza’s Dance Plus Season 2 that premiered on July 2, finally came to an end, today with a sparkling grand finale, that also graced Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor and Olympics bronze medallist Sakshi Malik, apart from judge Remo, host Raghav Juyal and the three mentors–Punit Pathak, Dharmesh Yelande and Shakti Mohan.
And the most important part of today’s episode was of course, the announcement of the final winner.
Any guesses? If you have watched today’s episode, you already know the name–Tanay Malhara, the 14-year-old teenager from Jalgaon Maharashtra, has won Dance Plus 2! He took home the prize money of Rs 25 lakh and the very special Dance Plus 2 trophy.
Tanay had earlier participated in DID L’il Masters Season 2. The teenage genius impressed everyone with his flexible dance moves since Day 1.
The winner was chosen through viewers’ vote from the final four contestants. Telephone lines were open for two hours from 8pm to 10pm on Saturday.
The grand finale was graced by Ranbir Kapoor–who made the episode even more memorable with his dance performance–and Olympics bronze medallist Sakshi Malik, and they were left impressed with the dancing talent on the show.
Sakshi told Remo that after seeing his performance she felt so charged up that she felt like doing her training. The wrestler also pressed the red button to give Remo a plus. The ace choreographer was of course touched by her gesture and said that he’s got a plus for the first time in the history of Dance Plus.
In Saturday’s episode, all the four finalists were seen putting their best foot forward. Piyush Bhagat, who performs in ghetto style delivered a powerful performance and wowed all the judges. He was also praised for the drastic improvement in his personality over the time on the show, since he first performed on the stage.
Wild Ripperz Group from Nepal, who perform in Hip hop and B-boying style also put up a splendid performance. The group got the biggest surprise of their life, when after getting compliments from judges, their mothers turned up on stage to give them Double Plus. The emotional reunion had everyone in tears.
Sushant Khatri from Nepal charmed everyone yet again with his performance. One of the highlights of the Saturday episode was Sushant and Piyush’s dance off. Remo was visibly overwhelmed with their performance together.
Last but not the least, Tanay, who performs in contemporary style bowled over everyone with his thoughtful performance. Not a single person was left unimpressed with his power-packed performance.
Dance Plus 2 was judged by Remo D’souza and hosted by Raghav Juyal. Choreographers Punit Pathak, Dharmesh Yelande and Shakti Mohan were the mentors. The show that wrapped up today with the grand finale aired on Saturday and Sunday at 8pm on Star Plus.
