‘I feel like I got my life back, I am so thrilled, we’re going to keep dancing,’ said the 47-year-old singer who has been suffering from Lyme disease since 2013.

Nick, who is up against his wife Vanessa in the competition, attempted an ‘aggressive and sexy’ Argentine tango with Peta Murgatroyd.

The 43-year-old singer was supposed to channel the energy of his first date with Vanessa for the dance, but he failed to remember the evening at all.

Vanessa on the other hand remembered every detail from ‘The Cherry Lounge’.
