Next to take the “Dancing with the Stars” stage are James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess, performing the tango to “The Right Time” by Yves V featuring Mike James. Hinchcliffe’s most memorable year is 2015, the year he was involved in a life-threatening accident on the track.

Bruno Tonioli says he went into hyperdrive, while Carrie Ann Inaba calls him a miracle and “the one to beat.” Julianne Hough says his frame is amazing, noting a few additional changes to make him unbeatable. They score a 29 after Hinchcliffe refers to his doctor and Burgess as “miracle workers.”
