Nepali dancer, Teirya Magar has won the Jhalak DikhhlaJa season 9 title, a reality dance competition held by Colors TV. The former Dance India Dance winner Teriya had won the title in the competition recorded recently. The official result is yet to be out as the show will be aired on Saturday, January 21, 2017.
Teriya is just 14 years old and she was one of the youngest dancers in the competition.
As the report is unofficial, we need to wait till Saturday evening for the official confirmation. After winning the competition, Teriya has won 3 Million Indian rupees and a Reynold Duster car. The judges of the competition were Karan Johar, Farah Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Ganesh Haj. The dance choreographer of Teriya was Rishikesh and her dance partner was Aryan.
How did Teriya Magar win?
Teriya Magar won the competition by a very large number of online votes. But, it was not only the votes that count in the competition.
In 2014, Teriya had won the Dance India Dance (DID) Little Masters 2014 title. Although she got a lot of online votes, only a good dancer can reach the final of the competition. She was selected from a pool of 40,000 dancers all over India. And the judges had selected Teriya to reach to the top. The votes can only sway the result a little bit – that too in the final round.
So, it was not only the votes that made her the winner – she is a damn good dancer!
There was a Teriya Magar voting campaign held in Nepal. Her father and Teriya were actively asking people to vote for her. The campaign started in the final days of the competition.
