Nyle DiMarco “Live With Kelly” Video: Watch Dance With Peta Murgatroyd!
Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd took their “Dancing with the Stars” victory lap to “Live with Kelly” on Wednesday. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop reported, DiMarco and Murgatroyd were named the season 22 Mirror Ball winners on Tuesday’s big finale. They celebrated the win with an “after-party” on “GMA” Wednesday morning, for which runners-up Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas also appeared. Both couples then went to hang out with Kelly Ripa and her guest co-host, Seal.
DiMarco and Murgatroyd kicked the segment off by dancing the cha-cha to DNCE’s “Cake By The Ocean.” Reflecting on his “DWTS” journey afterward, the deaf model told Ripa, “The first week, it was really difficult. I was really nervous, but after we got past that point, I just had more confidence, and we just built that every week and week by week.”
Murgatroyd acknowledged that she “really had to strategize” to choreograph routines since DiMarco couldn’t hear the music, and opted to use signals from hand scratches to back tickling to communicate certain moves and directions. “It was difficult sometimes,” the pro said, “but above all, it was amazing.”
Ripa also praised DiMarco for giving insight into the “hearing-impaired community.” He noted, “It’s inspiring the 70 million deaf people in this world, and that coincides with my foundation that I have. I really think we can change the world.”
VanZant and Ballas then came out to do their own dance, performing a salsa routine. Check out the full video below!
