HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The world's top fireknife dancers lit up the opening round of the annual World Fireknife Championship at the Polynesian Cultural Center this week. 

But unfortunately, Hawaii News Now's own Billy V. isn't one of them. Instead, he's bringing the heat to a little side competition.

The Polynesian Cultural Center organized a friendly fireknife challenge for local media members.

Billy V. put his skills to the test against members from other news organizations on Oahu. In a video posted to PCC's Facebook page, Billy learns the basics of the lit torch, and brings his 'A-game'.

Tossing the fireknife, twirling and 'chee-hoo-ing', Billy did his best to bring in the fan-favorite vote.

Voting closes at 11:59 p.m. Saturday. The winner will be announced on Monday.
