Bad Salsa Auditions For ‘AGT’ Season 15

Bad Salsa didn’t get their name because they’re bad dancers. BAD is actually an acronym for Bivash Academy of Dance. Members Sonali Majumder and Sumanth Maroju, who were 15 and 20 at their audition, previously won India’s Got Talent.


Sonali and Sumanth are from Kolkata, India. Before their performance, Sumanth shared that Sonali’s father earned a dollar a day as a farmer. “She has an amazing journey to this stage,” he said, adding that they felt “proud” and “blessed.”

The pair proceeded to perform an energetic dance routine that involved various flips and spins that had the judges smiling, gasping, and clapping in equal measure. The audience cheered them on as they performed.

Bad Salsa earned a standing ovation from the AGT judges. Howie Mandel told them they are “the opposite of bad.” Sofia Vergara said it made her want to dance but also “scared” her. Simon said it was so fast, it was like he had pressed fast-forward on a movie.

Talent Recap’s clip of Bad Salsa’s AGT audition has racked up over 20 million views on YouTube as of this writing. It also has over 600,000 likes from viewers, and more than 16,000 comments. The duo clearly has a lot of fans around the world.


Bad Salsa received four “yes” votes from the judges at their audition, and were sent through the Judge Cuts round without having to perform. In the quarterfinals, they received enough votes from viewers to move forward. In the semifinals, they were saved from elimination by the judges.

For the finals, Bad Salsa returned to the AGT stage and later performed with AGT: The Champions winners V. Unbeatable in the season finale. Unfortunately, Bad Salsa didn’t make it into the Top 5. Will they be back for the next season of Champions? We’ll have to wait and see.
