James Hinchcliffe ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Cirque Du Soleil Performance Called “Showstopper” (VIDEO)
James Hinchcliffe and his partner Sharna Burgess performed a “showstopper” on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” They danced a paso doble on the show’s “Cirque du Soleil” night. Watch the video below.
Hinchcliffe, who has consistently been among the top competitors this season, has actually danced the paso doble once before. On week two of “Dancing With The Stars,” he and Burke performed the dance to the theme of “The Walking Dead.” Of their routine then, Len Goodman said, “You are a very accomplished dancer.” And Carrie Ann Inaba exclaimed their paso doble was “truly impressive,” and that the pair’s “synchronicity was on point.”
Of course, as noted above, the race car driver has impressed the judges and audience alike since the beginning of the season. On the premiere night, he tied Olymic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez for the highest score. And last week, Hinchcliffe and Burgess beat Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke when both pairs danced cha cha routines.
For his paso doble this week on “Cirque du Soleil” night, which featured performers from the show “Paramour,” Bruno Tonioli said Hinchcliffe “stylistically nailed it.” He also called his and Burgess’ routine “fantastic” and a “Broadway showstopper.” Inaba similarly felt it was “excellent.” And Julianne Hough remarked, “You have so much charisma.. You are the real deal.”
As a result, Hinchcliffe and Burgess received a total of 28 out of 30 points. Watch the video below of James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess giving a “showstopper” performance on “Cirque du Soleil” night on “Dancing With The Stars.”
