May 27, 2016

Deaf supermodel Nyle DiMarco and dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd have won the Season 22 Dancing with the Stars title.

DiMarco, well known as an advocate for the deaf community, had been crowned Season 22 America's Next Top Model in 2015. He said that he was ready to take the world by storm and have them say, 'deaf people can dance'.

The couple did a tango to a hit song and all the judges gave their dance 30 out of 30.

One of the judges praised Dim Arco's 'beautiful heart' in sign language and called it the best dance in the history of the show.
