Armless pianist wins China's Got Talent - Update

A piano player who has no arms and plays the instrument with his toes has won the nationally televised China's Got Talent competition.

Liu Wei, who lost his arms in an accident at the age of 10, won the contest with his performance of You're Beautiful, originally by James Blunt. He told the judges: "At least I have a pair of perfect legs."

The 23-year-old Beijing-born musician has been invited to perform with Taiwanese pop star Jolin Tsai.

He also has the chance to perform in Las Vegas for three months and a possible recording contract, Chinese media reported.
