The 2012 Olympic gold medal winning gymnast and Mark finished in first place on the Dancing with the Stars judges' leaderboard after they performed a contemporary routine which received 27 out of 30 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli during Monday night's fourth performance show of the season.

Monday night's celebrity and professional pairings were required to relive the best years of their lives and share their favorite defining moments with fans through dance and song choice. Aly chose Summer 2012 when she represented USA at the Olympic Games.

Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman and partner Val Chmerkovskiy and former American Idol finalist and country singer Kellie Pickler and partner Derek Hough finished tied for second place on the leaderboard after both couples earned 26 points for their routines. Zendaya and Val performed a samba routine, while Kellie and Derek danced the rumba.

Zendaya chose the year 2009 when she began working in Los Angeles and got discovered by the Disney Channel. Kellie selected January 1, 2001 specifically when she married her husband, whom she said was the best thing to ever happen to her.

NFL football player Jacoby Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff finished in fourth place on Monday night's leaderboard. Jacoby -- who opted to pay tribute to the year 2012 when his son was born -- and Karina danced the foxtrot which earned 24 points from the judges.

Fifth place went to soap star Ingo Rademacher and partner Kym Johnson after they danced a Viennese waltz that received 23 points. Ingo's defining moment was the year 2009 when he married his wife and began a family.

Two couples finished tied for sixth place on the leaderboard with 21 points: Actor and comedian Andy Dick and partner Sharna Burgess and actor and comedian D.L. Hughley and partner Cheryl Burke. Andy and Sharna danced the Viennese waltz, while D.L. and Cheryl performed a foxtrot routine.

Andy highlighted the year 2013, which was precious time he got to spend with his daughter. D.L. chose the time when he was either in eighth or ninth grade, when life was full of innocence and the real world hadn't kicked in yet.

The Bachelor star Sean Lowe and partner Peta Murgatroyd landed in eighth place on the leaderboard after they danced a Viennese waltz which received 20 points from the judges. Sean selected the year 2012 when he starred on The Bachelor and became engaged to current fiancee Catherine Giudici, whom he described as the love of his life.

Two couples finished tied for ninth -- and last -- place at the bottom of the week's leaderboard with only 18 points: Boxer Victor Ortiz and partner Lindsay Arnold and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump and partner Gleb Savchenko. Victor and Lindsay performed a paso doble, while Lisa and Gleb danced the cha cha.

Victor decided to reenact the time when he won the World Welterweight Boxing Championship. Lisa -- who was ill and considered sitting out the night on the advice of her doctor -- selected her daughter's wedding as one of her most memorable moments.

The scores of last night's judging leaderboard will now be combined with the home viewer voting results to determine which of the 10 couples will be eliminated on Dancing with the Stars' third sixteenth-season results show Tuesday night at 9PM ET/PT.
