Hard-of-hearing contestant competes on Paul Abdul's new "Live to Dance" show

From Deaf News Today:

Paula Abdul's new TV debuted last night with a deaf contestant.

A hip hop dancer going by the name of C-Bunny appeared on Live To Dance. Despite a good performance and a vote of confidence from Paula herself, C-Bunny did not get through the auditions to the next round.

The main difference between this show and other reality shows is that there is no age limit and the judges push a button on whether to approve the performer rather than holding a discussion. The grand prize is $500,000.
