Liu Wei, a pianist who plays with his toes

The world is full of amazing people who choose not to let their circumstances defeat them. Liu Wei, 23, an armless Chinese pianist shocked the country on "China's Got Talent" playing the piano with his toes. He lost both of his arms when he was 10, after touching a high-voltage wire while playing hide-and-seek.

Wei, from Beijing, had always wanted to be a professional musician. His first piano teacher quit and said it was impossible for anyone to play the piano without fingers. At 18, he decided to teach himself.

He said, "For people like me, there were only two options. One was to abandon all dreams, which would lead to a quick, hopeless death; the other was to struggle without arms to live an outstanding life".
