Armless toe pianist wins ‘China’s Got Talent’

Beijing native Liu Wei is a musician who had both of his arms amputated after he suffered an electrical shock during a game of hide-and-seek at the age of 10.  At the age of 18 he decided to pursue a career in music.  Five years later he won “China’s Got Talent” at Shanghai Stadium on Sunday.

Wei performed his version of James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful” via the piano with his toes.

“China’s Got Talent” began in July and is part of Simon Cowell’s “Got Talent” franchise.  The franchise is located in over 30 countries.

Cowell is best know for American Idol as well as his British version of “Got Talent” discovering Susan Boyle.
