The results are in and dance group Conversion, from Trois-Rivières, Quebec, is the winner of Canada’s Got Talent (CGT) season two! 

Conversion is recognized for its synchronized routines involving elegant movements and captivating emotion. 

The group famously received a Golden Buzzer this season from judge Trish Stratus’ Golden Buzzer.

The dance group has won a $150,000 prize and financial advice to fund future ambitions, as well as the opportunity to perform in “America’s Got Talent Presents: SUPERSTARS Live” at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

It was a tight race overall for Conversion, as they were competing against fellow Quebec dance group, The Cast. In third place was The Turnball Brothers and in fourth, Maeve.

Citytv has approved season three of Canada’s Got Talent with an even larger prize of a whopping one million dollars for the winner, courtesy of Rogers. This would be the biggest cash prize in Canadian television history. CIBC will also be giving six season 3 Golden Buzzer acts $25,000 each, totalling $150,000.
