On Friday night, Connor Cruise, known as DJ C-Squared, brought his musical talents to Vegas and delivered a heart-pumping DJ set for a packed house at Hyde at the Bellagio.
The 17-year-old rising star deejay, who is the son of Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, has been scoring high-profile gigs across the country. When previously asked how his famous dad feels about his DJing, Cruise replied, “He loves it!” Cruise reportedly takes his DJing seriously and is hoping to continue long-term.
Dressed in dark jeans, black Diamond Life tee, Supra kicks and a matching Louis Vuitton belt and backpack, the young DJ captivated the lavish nightspot with an eclectic mix of artists and musical genres. Opening with an upbeat mix of Lykke Li’s “I Follow Rivers,” Cruise continued late into the night with unexpected mashups including Avicii’s hit “Levels” with alternative breakout Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” while mixing in tunes like Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody,” Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain,” “Take Care” from Drake, and the popular David Guetta and Usher collaboration “Without You.” Dancing as he spun from the DJ booth above Hyde’s dramatic fireplace, Cruise overlooked a sea of club-goers dancing on tables as the famed Fountains of Bellagio sprayed high into the night.
