Cyrus Takes on Vegas Week


Since the beginning, I definitely admired the creativity and talent of Dragon House, but it wasn’t until Vegas week (last week’s episode) where I became a true supporter of Cyrus, a.k.a. Glitch.  During Vegas week, he was left alone after one of his roommates was eliminated and the other simply quit the competition.  However, instead of quitting like his friend, Cyrus used everything he had to prove why he deserves to be in this season’s top 20.  Even if you’re not a fan of hip hop, you have to give the guy props for his tenacity and determination to finish what he started.  Nothing came in the way of him and his goal, which is why he is still standing.  After making it through contemporary, hip hop, broadway, ballroom, and jazz, plus having to dance for his life, tonight we will find out if Cyrus will have a place in the top 20.  I’ll be heartbroken if he doesn’t make it and if he does I’ll surely be rooting for him.  Either way, at least we have a real example of what it means to never give up.

Here’s Cyrus “Glitch” dancing for his life to escape elimination during Vegas week.
