LAUNCESTON-born dancer Lockhart Brownlie played a key role in one of the world's biggest sporting events yesterday.
Brownlie, 24, performed with Katy Perry as part of the Super Bowl half-time show, in Phoenix, Arizona - and more than 100 million people were expected to tune in. He confessed on Facebook that he was one of the "silver dancers" and not one of the dancing sharks many people thought he might have been.
Brownlie started working with Perry in 2010 and has since been one of her four main male dancers, performing on both her California Dreams and Prismatic world tours.
Perry's 12-and-a-half minute Super Bowl performance set social media abuzz, especially because of her dancing sharks and beach balls.
The set started with Perry appearing on a giant mechanical tiger to sing Roar, before merging into Dark Horse, when Brownlie appeared.
