Silently singing a song of accessibility

On Norwegian TV2‘s I’m-a-wannabe-popstar show Idol, I saw one of the perhaps finest examples of accessibility ever.
A deaf guy singing.
In silence.
I mean, this deaf guy wasn’t making one single sound. His body language and lip movement said it all, I think he did a better job at performing Sissel Kyrkjebø‘s “Vestland, Vestland” (a tribute to the western parts of Norway) than she originally did back in the eighties.
One member of the jury cried. I can understand why. I’m still in shock.
