A graduate from James Madison University is making a name for himself in Hollywood.
Phillip Bernier is a contestant on the ABC show "Dance War: Bruno Vs. Carrie Ann."
Bernier is one of 12 finalists in the singing and dancing show. He completed his degree at JMU in 2006, majoring in music industry, but he says he has been surprised at how rigorous the whole process has been.
"The greatest challenge to all of us is the long days," says Bernier. "With it being a live show, we have to learn two or three or four different pieces, to sing and dance to within two or three days."
Dance War airs on ABC Monday nights at 8 p.m. Eastern.
