  Dang Quan and Bao Ngoc win first season of "Vietnam's Got Talent".

Nguyen Dang Quan, 12, and Tran Bao Ngoc, 6, performed dancesport to beat thousands of competitors and win "Vietnam's Got Talent."

In an exciting finale on May 6 at Lan Anh Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City, they combined pasodoble, rumba, and ballet in a dazzling montage set to Michael Jackson's "Heal The World."

They also sent a message against war to grab viewers' votes and with it the cash prize of VND400 million (US$20,000).

BHD Company, the organizer of the six-month long show, said it would find the winners a good agency to boost their career.

The finals saw the four best performers out of the 14 finalists who sang, danced, parkoured, and played musical instruments in the two final rounds on April 22 and 29.

The three others - Vo Trong Phuc, Nguyen Huong Thao and Vu Song Vu - were all singers.

Two were chosen by public voting by text messaging and the others by the judges.

Thao was considered the strongest rival with her Broadway-inspired opera. During the audition, she had astonished the judges with her singing and acting in some Broadway pieces like "The Little Mermaid" and "Wicked."

Phuc, an English teacher, enchanted viewers with country music, natural style, and good looks.

Thirteen-year-old Vu has been famous since he sang "My Heart Will Go On," Celine Dion's smash hit from the "Titanic," and posted it on the Internet last year. But at the final he did not sing in English.

In the final, which was broadcast live nationwide, audiences got a chance to see not only top four but also some of the other contestants and professional singers.
