Nyle DiMarco earns full marks dancing deaf and blindfolded on Dancing with the Stars

By Rhys Matthews

Nyle DiMarco has continued his rise to the top on Dancing with the Stars, leaving audiences stunned this week after dancing without his hearing or sight.

The American’s Next Top Model winner, who is deaf, has made it through to next weekend’s final after dancing the tango blindfolded, meaning as well as not being able to hear the music, he was unable to take visual cues from the dancing partner, Peta Murgatroyd.

The pair brought the crowd to its feet with a tango to “Unsteady (Erich LeeGravity Remix)” by X Ambassadors, and scored full-marks following the performance.

The people of Twitter shared their amazement at the powerful routine, and how Nyle appears to be able to do absolutely anything he puts his mind to.

The stunning moment comes just a week after the ‘sexually-fluid’ 28-year-old made history as part of the show’s first-ever same-sex dance. Surely after all this, lifting the trophy could be the only way to end this incresdible journey?
