James Hinchcliffe and his partner Sharna Burgess was near perfect on Monday’s “Dancing With The Stars.” They performed a tango to Yves V’s “The Right Time” on the show’s “Most Memorable Year” night. Watch the video below.

Hinchcliffe, who has been near the top of the leader board week after week, impressed again. As Gossip Cop reported, last week the race car driver came in second with 28 out of 30 points on “Cirque du Soleil” night. Bruno Tonioli called his paso doble a “showstopper” and felt he “nailed” his routine. And Julianne Hough told Hinchcliffe, “You are the real deal.”

Before his tango on Monday the race car driver related that 2015 was his most memorable year. He explained that while doing practice laps for the Indy 500, he crashed his race car going 224 mph and nearly died. One wouldn’t know that, however, from his impressive footwork again on “Dancing With The Stars.”

On “Most Memorable Year” night, Carrie Ann Inaba felt, “You are the one to beat.” Hough expressed, “Your frame is the best I’ve ever seen on this competition.” Tonioli added, “You went into hyperdrive… Amazing control.”

For his tango, Hinchcliffe and Burgess got 29 out of 30 points. Check out the video below of James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess performing a tango on “Dancing With The Stars.”
