ENERGETIC dance group Rejuvenate Dance Crew topped the charts when they were crowned champions of Who’s Got Talent 2, a biannual competition organised by First Baptist Church, Subang Jaya recently.

Comprising Danny Lee, Caven Tang, Kevin Ong, Sim Keat Ping, Lee Choon Yeong and Yeoh Zi Xian who are all below the age of 20, Rejuvenate Dance Crew mesmerised the judges and over 350 fans during the Grand Finale concert with their synchronised and body-popping moves to bag the top prize of RM1,200 and a challenge trophy.

The Avalanche, a teenage singing trio of Nicole Ng Kylie, Aminath Malsa Bhiyam and Kareshmma Martin, finished runner-up after performing a superb medley of songs which included Michael Jackson’s hits Thriller, Beat It and Psy’s Oppa Gangnam Style.

Part of the girls’ instruments included a book and they won RM500 for their sterling effort.

Fifteen-year-old pianist Priska Leong also wowed the judges with her own composition on the piano to finish third and won RM300.

The judges included Malaysia’s top violinist Joanne Yeoh, singer Juwita Suwito, Ng Yee Hing and dance instructors Chong Pooi Yan and Mark Poh.

Who’s Got Talent was inaugurated by First Baptist Church in 2011 where youths below the age of 25 are eligible to showcase their talents in singing, dancing, musical instrumentation and band performance.

Over 60 acts took part in the auditions on April 20 before the judges selected the top 12 finalists.

Three wild-card finalists were picked during the grand finale through voting by fans after watching video highlights of the second- round auditions.
