The former N SYNC singer and Johnson became the second couple ousted from the competition based on the combination of the Dancing with the Stars judges' scores they had received during Monday night's performance show and the home viewer votes that were cast afterwards.

"I'll miss everybody out here, because everybody was great and I had a great time. You know what? For me, I'm actually going to a wedding tomorrow, so I don't give a damn! I'm going to have a good time! I'm going to be honest, everybody had a good time here. I know that me and Kym, I didn't let you down. We had a great time. People said I was fun and that's all that matters. I don't care, God bless you guys for your votes. I appreciate it; I respect it. But as long as I had fun, I don't care what your votes say, but I appreciate it. Thank you very much," Fatone said following his ouster.

"I know, it's been amazing. I'm upset. I'm sad, I'm not going to lie," Johnson added.

"It happens! It's the All-Stars!" Fatone interjected.

"It's the All-Stars. It's an amazing season," Johnson agreed.

Fatone and Johnson, who was also paired up with Fatone when he finished second on Dancing with the Stars' fourth season in 2007, finished in a three-way tie for seventh place on Monday night's judging leaderboard after they performed a quickstep routine which received 22.5 out of 30 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli on the show's new scoring system, which features 0.5 intervals for the first time in Dancing with the Stars history.

Fatone and Johnson tied with NFL football star Emmitt Smith and former 98 Degrees singer Drew Lachey. Smith and partner Cheryl Burke, who was also partnered with Smith when he won Dancing with the Stars' third season in 2006, danced a quickstep routine. Lachey and partner Anna Trebunskaya performed a jive routine. Lachey won Dancing with the Stars' second season with Burke in 2006.

IndyCar racer Helio Castroneves and partner Chelsie Hightower were the other couple still in danger of elimination prior to Fatone and Johnson's ouster, as Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet noted they were actually the other couple in the bottom two based on the combination of the judges' scoring and home viewer votes from the prior performance show.

Castroneves and Hightower finished in sixth place on the judges' leaderboard after they performed a jive routine which earned 23 points. Castroneves won Dancing with the Stars' fifth season in 2007 with Julianne Hough.

Singer and former Disney Channel star Sabrina Bryan -- who was allowed to enter the competition after winning the "Viewers' Choice: All-Star" vote in August -- and professional partner Louis van Amstel finished in first place on the judges' leaderboard with 26 points after they performed a quickstep routine. The pair not only received the first nine of the season, but they also earned the highest score of the All-Stars edition yet to date. 
 
Bryan originally competed with Mark Ballas her first time around on Dancing with the Stars' fifth season in Fall 2007. The pair had finished in seventh place after what was considered unexpectedly early elimination.

Actor Gilles Marini finished in second place with partner Peta Murgatroyd after they earned 25.5 points for their jive performance. Marini was previously paired with Burke for Dancing with the Stars' eighth season in 2009 which he had finished in second place.

Olympic gold medalist gymnast Shawn Johnson and partner Derek Hough landed in third place on Monday night's leaderboard following their jive routine which received 25 points from the judges. Shawn Johnson won Dancing with the Stars' eighth season with Ballas in 2009.

Fourth place on the judges' leaderboard went to Olympic gold medalist speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno, who won Dancing with the Stars' fourth season with Julianne Hough in 2007, and partner Karina Smirnoff after they earned 24.5 points for their quickstep dance.

Reality TV star Melissa Rycroft and partner Tony Dovolani, who was also partnered with Rycroft when she won Dancing with the Stars' eighth season in 2009, danced a jive that received 23.5 points from the judges -- placing them fifth on the leaderboard.

Soap star Kelly Monaco and partner Val Chmerkovskiy performed a quickstep routine that earned them 22 points from the judges, leaving them in tenth place on the leaderboard. Monaco won Dancing with the Stars' inaugural season in 2005 with partner Alec Mazo.

Eleventh place went to actress Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy after they danced a jive worthy of 21 points. The pair originally competed together and finished as the runner-up couple during Dancing with the Stars' twelfth season in 2011.

Reality TV star Bristol Palin and partner Ballas, who was also partnered with Palin when she finished third on Dancing with the Stars' eleventh season in 2010, finished in twelfth -- and last -- place at the bottom of the leaderboard after they performed a quickstep routine which received only 18 points from the judges.
