He's using a Pioneer CDJ-1000 MK3, so technically he could be playing MP3, but not without timecode CD (for Serato/Traktor etc) - cooz it doesn`t have USB-connection like new models. He could play from memory card, but it would show the track name anyways, instead of `no disc` so.. I would bet my money on "he`s totally doing a fake playback for the show". Just in case some1 actually cares. (And yes, you can scratch with scratch-mode using the platter, like with "real vinyl" too).

@greenbasterd as for mp3s not being used by professionals? It's used by most of the pros now. Get out off the 90`s kiddo. High quality mp3s are almost as good as any other format. Especially when you are playing lady gag garbage.
