The YouTube community voted overwhelmingly to support Dominic (aka D-Trix) to win YouTube’s “On The Rise” contest. The competition let the public decide which up-and-coming YouTube user gets a spot on the homepage. With 56% of the vote, he was profiled on YouTube today.
You’ll recognize D-trix as a talented dancer with a big love for comedy. The self-effacing Dominic characterizes his channel as “stupid dance crap and other random dumb stuff.” Here’s a special message from Dominic on this win:
“Hey, everyone! First off I would just like to say ‘Thank You’ for all the support and for getting me here today. This experience thus far has been a blast and I extremely honored to be a part of the poll. How it all began was I was on reality television (So You Think You Can Dance and America’s Best Dance Crew) and from there I wanted to stay in the eye so I thought YOUTUBE was the best route for me. But, all in all, I totally wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my great friend Ryan Higa, who pretty much introduced me to this whole YouTube experience. So to all my supporters old and new I just want to say THANK YOU times a thousand and stay tuned for more! Much love!”
