Double amputee Liu Wei won the inaugural season of China’s Got Talent last night, wowing viewers and judges with his rendition of “You’re Beautiful,” which he performed entirely with his toes. The 23-year-old lost his arms in an electrical accident at age 10 according to Mediaite, and took up playing barefoot piano at age 18.
