Background

V.Unbeatable formed in 2012 and was originally named Unbeatable. Founded by Vikas and Om Prakash, the group was doing well until, two years later, Vikas got injured during rehearsal and passed away. The group renamed itself V.Unbeatable (for Vikas Unbeatable) in his honor and continued to pursue Vikas’s original dreams for the group. The group began auditioning for reality shows such as "India's Got Talent" and "Dance Plus," and after many rejections decided to form a mega-crew with 35 group members. Finally, they were selected for "Dance Plus" Season 4, giving them the chance to fulfill Vikas's dream for the group. Performing on "America's Got Talent" is a very proud moment for them, as they continue to fulfill Vikas's dream as well as represent India. [1]
