I've been pretty obsessed with the passion and charm brought to this season's Dancing With The Stars by Nyle DiMarco, the deaf, sexually fluid, America’s Next Top Model winner.
During last night's finals, Nyle and partner Peta Murgatroyd delivered a stunning freestyle dance set to Disturbed's cover of the Simon & Garfunkel classic, “The Sound of Silence.”
The judges (who awarded Nyle and Peta a perfect score of 30) were effusive with their praise.
Carrie Ann Inaba: “The best dance I have ever seen in 22 seasons” of the show. What was so profound about it is not only do I see a man who wants to prove that he can dance, but I also see a man that is proving he can change the world through dance.”
Bruno Tonioli: “That was beyond dancing, that was a work of art. I have chills.”
Len Goodman: “Well you said that was a dance for deaf people, but that wasn’t. It was a dance for everyone. Nyle, you’re a very special person. And that was a very special dance.”
