Caution: Spoilers ahead!

Nyle DiMarco continued to amaze during the Dancing With the Stars semi-finals on Monday, when the deaf model challenged himself in an entirely new way by performing blindfolded.

The 27-year-old heartthrob, who is the first fully-deaf competitor on DWTS, removed another one of his senses during his passionate Argentine tango -- set to "Unsteady" by the X Ambassadors -- with his pro partner, Peta Murgatroyd.

As she slipped the blindfold over DiMarco's eyes, it was clear that the emotional performance was something special, and a way for the handsome America's Next Top Model winner to further amaze those who already can't believe how great he is at dancing despite being totally deaf.

The performance clearly moved every one of the judges, who couldn't contain their adoration and praise for the flawless routine.

"I love your fearlessness," Carrie Ann Inaba shared. "It inspires me to the deepest core of my being." Fellow judge Len Goodman echoed that sentiment, telling DiMarco, "You never cease to amaze."

The dance earned the pair a perfect score of 30 out of 30. Combined with the formidable score of 27 for their first dance of the night -- a high-energy but ultimately hectic Jive -- DiMarco and Murgatroyd ended the night with a total score of 57.

While it wasn't quite as high as Boyz II Men singer Wanya Morris' perfect 60 out of 60, DiMarco ended up moving on to the DWTS finals while Morris was sent home, alongside NFL star Antonio Brown.

Next week, DiMarco will face off against his fellow finalists -- UFC fighter Paige VanZant and GMA weather anchor Ginger Zee -- to see who takes home the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy and is crowned the winner of Season 22.

DiMarco has had a stellar season and is considered by many to be the show's frontrunner. Last week, he shared what if felt like to dance deaf when he performed with five members of the DWTS troupe in total silence. Check out the video below for a look at the powerful routine.
