By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/13/2012 

Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars' Week 8 leaderboard has been topped by Melissa Rycroft and professional partner Tony Dovolani -- maintaining their first-place ranking after coming out on top in Week 7 as well.

The reality TV star and Dovolani finished in first place on the special two-week judges' leaderboard, which combined last night's judges' scores with the scores the couples had received from their individual routine and "swing dance marathon" last week, during Dancing with the Stars' ninth fifteenth-season performance show on ABC Monday night.

Last night's broadcast featured each All-Star couple dancing an individual routine and a trio dance in which each couple chose an eliminated professional dancer or a member of the Dancing with the Stars Troupe "to enhance their routines and show off each star's greatest strengths," according to Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet.

Rycroft and Dovolani topped the leaderboard after they received a total of 99 out of 100 possible points over the two-week period for their dances from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

The couple received two perfect scores of 30 out of 30 possible points for their quickstep routine and trio dance, which featured Troupe member Henry Byalikov joining them to perform a paso doble routine, Monday night. Those scores were combined with the 39 out of 40 possible points they had earned last week. 

Actress Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy finished in seventh -- and last -- place on the two-week leaderboard. They danced a Viennese waltz routine which received 27 points and then a trio dance alongside pro dancer Tristan MacManus in the form of the paso doble which earned 24 points from the judges. When combined with the 28 points they had received last week, the couple earned a total score of 79 points.

Olympic gold medalist gymnast Shawn Johnson and partner Derek Hough finished in second place on the judges' leaderboard with 93.5 total points.

Johnson and Hough earned 29.5 points for their Viennese waltz on Monday night and 26 points for the samba routine they performed with pro dancer Mark Ballas -- who had stepped in for Hough last week due to a neck injury and previously been paired with Johnson when she won Dancing with the Stars' eighth season in 2009. Their total of 55.5 points Monday night added to their combined score of 38 points for their individual routine and "swing dance marathon" last week.

Third place represented a tie between soap star Kelly Monaco and partner Val Chmerkovskiy and NFL football star Emmitt Smith and partner Cheryl Burke after both couples racked up a total of 92.5 points over the course of the last two weeks -- which included 28 points a piece for their individual Viennese waltz routines Monday night.

Combined with the 36 points they had previously received, Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy also earned 28.5 points for their trio performance with pro dancer Louis van Amstel. The threesome danced a jive routine. 

Smith and Burke danced the salsa with pro dancer Kym Johnson for their trio performance, which received a perfect score of 30 points from the judges. The couple earned a combined total of 34.5 points for their fusion routine and swing dance performance last week. 

Fifth place on the Week 8 leaderboard went to actor Gilles Marini and partner Peta Murgatroyd after they danced a quickstep routine which earned 29.5 points and their trio performance -- which was a salsa routine that featured pro dancer Chelsie Hightower -- that received 29 points from the judges. Combined with the 33.5 total points they had earned last week, the couple walked away with 92 total points.

Olympic gold medalist speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno and partner Karina Smirnoff landed in sixth place on the judges' leaderboard with 91.5 total points. The couple performed a tango routine which earned 29.5 points and then a jive routine for their trio performance with Troupe member Sasha Farber which received 29 points from the judges. Ohno and Smirnoff received 33 total points last week for their individual routine and "swing dance marathon" performance.  

Dancing with the Stars judges' scores and home viewer votes from the last two performance shows will now be combined. During tonight's Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars results show, two couples will be ousted in a special double-elimination broadcast.
