Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru

Mangaluru, Jul 18: Mangaluru's 'Nostalgia' dance trio of Gavin Rodrigues, Nicky Pinto and Leonel Sequeira have made their hometown proud by making it to the Top-12 of the Dance Plus3 reality show being aired on Star Plus national television channel. The show is being telecast on Star Plus every Saturday and Sunday at 8 pm and 10 pm respectively.

The trio who went through several auditions in Bengaluru and Mumbai were fortunate to gain a slot in the television round wherein 50 contestants had to undergo auditions in front of super judge Remo D'Souza. They danced to the rhythmic beats of 'Naino se naino mila', a performance that was praised by all the mentors, with even mentor Dharmesh dancing with them on the stage.

In the second auditions which were telecast on July 15 and 16, 34 contestants fought their way to make it to the final 12. The Nostalgia team performed to the song 'Dhai Shyam Rok le' which won them accolades from mentor Puneet, who said that their dance was truly 'Ek Level Up'.

Those who made it to the top 12 are: The Tutex Crew, Amardeep, Tarun and Shivani, Aryan (Dharmesh team); Nostalgia, Jeet Das, Shree Rama Nataka Niketan and Chow En Lai Phuken (Shakti team); Ayush and Mukesh, Bir, AVP crew and House of Suraj (Puneet team).

All the 12 teams are going to perform for the next 6 weeks, wherein 6 of them will be chosen to the Top 6. From then on, elimination will be based on public voting.

All the 12 contestants are going to perform alongside world renowned artistes like World Hip-Hop champion Fik-Shun, Latin dancers Paul and Brittany and Kathak Maestro Pandit Birju Maharaj. They will even get a chance to dance along with megastar Shah Rukh Khan who will appear in the show to promote his movie 'Jab Harry Met Sejal'.

The 'Nostalgia' team is one of the only two teams from South India who are in the Top 12 now. The other team is Sri Ram Nataka Niketan from Hyderabad.

    Its really the proud moment for us to see the object lit green when results of top 12 announced. Now the team made it to 12 top dancers, but voting is important. We do not know how much that effects in selection, however the no of votes will surely have the impact on polularity of teams. Team Notalgia made it, now we all have to help them to move to top One. Our best wishes are with you Gavin, Nicky and Leo.
