Armless pianist wins China’s Got Talent

The first winner of China’s Got Talent is a 23-year-old pianist who has no arms. Liu Wei beat a 7-year-old stand-up comic on Sunday. The AP reports that he “lost both his arms at age 10 when he was electrocuted during a game of hide-and-seek.”

Here’s his finale performance of “You Are Beautiful,” which is preceded by a clip package; you can also watch his initial audition.
