Jeet Dasoves to the popular Kolaveri Di during the Kolkata auditions made him an overnight sensation as videos of his performance were shared all across the internet. Fate had other plans for lJeet as an illness prevented him from traveling to Mumbai for the Final Auditions; but his stunning performance and uncanny resemblance to a young Michael Jackson during the Wild Card round catapulted him straight into the competition. Being the youngest contender in the competition hasnⴠstopped this li⬠firebrand from growing from strength to strength as he continued to deliver one brilliant performance after another. Master Geeta Kapur has time and again told him that he displays the spirit of a great dancer every time he performs on stage!

Cute and mischievous Om Chetry is truly a cracker in every sense of the word. He first caught the attention of the judges with his surprising flexibility & control over movement during his audition at Kolkata. He then went on to weave his way into the hearts of millions of fans with his performances, often charming visiting Bollywood stars with his cute antics and throwing dance or stunt challenges at them. From his breathtaking stunts to his effervescent personality, he pushes the envelope every time whether it was his malkhamb that could put older and more trained dancers to shame or the daring fire act that kept the audience on the edge of their seats and his skipper Kruti was reprimanded for even attempting such a dangerous act. Time and again, young Om has proved to the audience that thereⳠnothing he cannot accomplish once he sets his mind to it!

Soumya Rai is a dancer who from day one has proved, that if there is anything a boy can do, she can only do it better! Whether it is kathak and Bollywood or Popping-Locking and Dubstep, Soumya has excelled at them all. Her characteristic grace and flow of movement has always earned her compliments from the judges and grandmaster alike. Her rendition of Madhuri DixitⳠch Leot her a flurry of praise from everyone who saw it; with Master Marzi going as far as saying that she outdid MadhuriⳠoriginal performance!

Rohan Parkale has been the dark horse all thorough the competition! Time and again, he has surprised his choreographers and the judges with his sheer versatility. Whether it was his skipper RaghavⳠtrademark "slow mo" dance or guest choreographer PaulⳠfreestyle, Rohan has absorbed every style like a veritable sponge and replicated each performance with flair and flourish, making him every choreographerⳠdream dancer. His ᳨adowerformance with Paul from DID Season 3 was rated as one of the best performances across any season of DID and earned him the highest votes of the week!p>

Not many 13-year-olds can claim to have fans in Bollywood, but Faisal Khan has done just that! At the Mumbai audition,  he left Master Geeta Kapur in tears with his brilliant performance. She wished that she was blessed with a child like Faisal and his inborn talent for dance. His father, an autorickshaw driver in Mumbai, supported his dreams and helped him get to the audition of DID and thereⳠbeen no looking back ever since. Abhishek Bachchan & Ritesh Kapoor were raving about his fluid movements and charming expressions and have been following his progress on the show right from the audition.
