For one lucky group, it was a perfect ending for the first season of Canada's Got Talent. Amid the cheers from the crowd, and a staggering amount of votes, Sagkeeng’s Finest was crowned the winner.
Sagkeeng's Finest is based out of Fort Alexander, MB, and auditioned in Winnipeg, Manitoba, composed of members Vince O'Laney and Brandon and Dallas Courchene.
The traditional dance group has been quoted saying that they were inspired to perform by "our elders who have passed on because they loved to dance and so do we." They added, "Also for all of the First Nations kids across the country, To show that there are a lot of things to do to keep you out of trouble."
The dance trio has won a cash prize of $100,000, a brand new Nissan GT-R, and a spot on Citytv's 2013 New Years Eve Bash.
Canada's Got Talent is modeled after the popular U.S. show America's Got Talent. The judges included Martin Short, a comedian/actor best known for his stint in the Canadian sketch troupe SCTV.
