24-year-old Liu Wei, the armless musician who stunned the world this August, by playing the piano with his feet for the audition of 'China's Got Talent', is back in the limelight - This time, for winning the inaugural season of the show.

The talented youngster, who wowed the judges with his rendition of James Blunt's 'You are beautiful', was pitted against 7-year old standup comedian, Zhang Fengx at the finals, held at the Shangai Stadium, on Sunday night.

Unlike the winners in the USA and Britain, Liu is not guaranteed a music contract. However, he did get invited to join Taiwanese artist Jolin Tsai, to perform on her world tour, which includes a three-month stint in Las Vegas.

The win, brings the young man who lost both his arms in a childhood accident, one step closer to realizing his dream of becoming a professional musician. Besides being wowed by his talent, the judges were also very impressed by his positive attitude, which can be summed up by this one sentence - 'At least I have a pair of perfect legs' - He sure does!
