"There is a possibility that Sharna and I have danced our last dance this season," Hinchcliffe shared during the pre-recorded package that aired before his performance.
Burgess' doctors told her she may need to stay off her feet for three to six weeks.
"He's in there with Jenna, who is amazing, but if I leave him I worry that he's not going to be his best this week, and then maybe he gets sent home," Burgess also said in an interview before the performance.
As it turns out, there really wasn't any need to worry as Hinchcliffe and Johnson absolutely slayed their routine.
Decked out as The Joker and Harley Quinn from the movie Suicide Squad, the two performed a very devilishly romantic (and deranged) Viennese waltz set to "You Don't Own Me" by Grace, a song which was featured in the film.
"You're now my favorite Joker after Heath Ledger," DWTS host Tom Bergeron told Hinchcliffe after the performance.
The judges shared similar sentiments. Julianne Hough had to fan herself to gain her composure while Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli were equally impressed with the "amazing" performance.
"In spite of a new set of wheels, you still delivered the ride of a lifetime," Tonioli said, referring to Hinchcliffe's new partner.
For their efforts, the Hinchcliffe and Johnson were awarded a perfect 30 out of 30, and earned immunity from elimination this week.
