    Berkeley Meets Bollywood on "America's Got Talent"
    Ishaara is made up of 15 students from UC Berkeley.

    When the dance troupe Ishaara entered the stage of "America's Got Talent" last night, they told judges that they would "knock your socks off." 

    They didn't disappoint.
     
    The group, which is composed of 15 students from UC Berkeley, danced to the song "Jai Ho" from the soundtrack to the hit movie "Slumdog Millionaire."

    They received a standing ovation from the audience and all three judges voted to send them to the next round of the contest in Las Vegas.  

    Jude Piers Morgan described the performance as "brilliant."

    Ishaara has won several intercollegiate competitions over the past few years. Their members rehearse up to 20 hours each week in addition to attending school.
