Dance India Dance on Zee TV

The regular dance contests on TV are the 2 main ones of Jhalak Dikhla Ja and Nach Baliye, and both of them center around getting unusual celebrities to do the dancing (so you have TV stars, magicians, singers, cooks, etc). What about the Indian Idol equivalent, where normal people get the chance to show their singing abilities ? Well, Dance India Dance is a chance where talented normal dancers get a chance to make their talents known on national television.
So, the program had auditions in many cities where people had the chance to show their dance routine to the judges, be selected, and then a further process of selection to narrow down the list to 18. These 18 were then allotted to the 3 dance gurus, and then show their performances (including individual and double performances) and be judged for further movement. The 3 gurus also had to start nominating 2 of their contestants for judging, and then were selected by the Grand Master for approval, or for removal.
The 3 judges are (all famous dance choreographers):
# Terrence Lewis ... Judge
# Geeta Kapur ... Judge
# Remo D'Souza ... Judge
The Grand Master is Mithun Chakraborty
The hosts for the show are:
* Jay Bhanushali
* Saumya Tandon

Current people present in the contest are:
Jai Kumar Nair
Alisha Singh
Mayuresh Wadkar
Vrushali Chavan
Siddesh Pai
Bhavana Purohit
Khushboo Purohit
Rakhee Sharma

In addition, 12 of the previous contestants who were eliminated were selected for a wild card entry, a chance to again try for being among 3 contestants who will be selected again for the contest.

Some of these performances have been very impressive, and probably the most impressive performance has been by a disabled man from Gujrat called Kamlesh. Here is a video of Kamlesh's performance again (second part of this video and starting point of the next video):

Dance India Dance is back with a bang on Zee TV and that too in a new avatar. The first three seasons which had individual participants and gave us new dancing talents is now called ‘DID Doubles’ which means that instead of individuals, there will be couples who will perform as a team.
