The Greatest Dancer viewers left in tears over incredible deaf performer

Viewers were left in tears on The Greatest Dancer tonight over an incredible performer who was deaf.

Chris Fonseca was aged just 23 months when he lost his hearing and dances through hearing the vibrations through his hearing aids.

Appearing on the BBC show tonight, he inspired the judges and audience alike as he performed on stage.

After receiving more than 75% of the vote, he made it through to the next round.

All the judges were on their feet, with Matthew Morrison lavishing him with praise.


Meanwhile Cheryl said: "You feel the music, it’s incredible to witness – that was stunning… also, you’re very handsome!"

And fans flocked to Twitter to praise the performance, which left some "sobbing".


One tweeted: " at here sobbing at @chrisfonseca15 on @GreatDancerTV on @bbcone what an incredible inspiration!!! He does not let his disability define him and he’s just incredible for being able to dance when he’s deaf #thegreatestdancer."

While another commented: "I’m sobbing #TheGreatestDancer."

A third remarked: "I just shed a tear.. that was amazing! #TheGreatestDancer."
