Clad in colorful costumes, 13 members of Cornell’s Bhangra dance team performed live on NBC’s Today show Wednesday morning as part of a contest at New York City’s Rockefeller Plaza.

Cornell Bhangra, a dance troupe that performs a style of Indian dance, is one of three finalists among thousands of participants competing in NBC’s “Today’s Got Talent” competition. The finalist that receives the highest number of votes on an online poll will earn the last open spot on America’s Got Talent, a competition with a $1 million prize.

Voting for the online poll will end Tuesday at noon.
