The celebrity and professional pairings were all required to battle it out with dances the all-stars had picked for each other last week. Some of the styles of dance have never been featured on Dancing with the Stars before, and a couple of the choreographers even had to seek expert help for their routines. In addition, lifts were allowed.
Actress Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who was also partnered with Alley when she finished as the runner-up during Dancing with the Stars' twelfth season last year, finished in ninth -- and last -- place at the bottom of the leaderboard after they performed a Charleston routine which received only 30 points from the judges.
Fourth place on the judges' leaderboard went to reality TV star Melissa Rycroft and partner Tony Dovolani, who was also partnered with Rycroft when she wonDancing with the Stars' eighth season in 2009, after they earned 37 points for their Jitterbug dance routine from the judges.
NFL football star Emmitt Smith and partner Burke, who was also partnered with Smith when he wonDancing with the Stars' third season in 2006, finished in fifth place on the leaderboard after they received 36 points for their Bolero performance.
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 partner Louis van Amstel claimed sixth place on Monday night's judging leaderboard with 35.5 points. They danced a disco performance.
Bryan originally competed with 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.
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 eighth place. The couple danced a Rock N' Roll routine that earned 32 points from the show's judges, which marked the pair's best score of the season thus far.
Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars' fourth results show of the season will air tonight at 8PM ET/PT on ABC and feature the elimination of one All-Star couple.
