'Dancing with the Stars' leaderboard led by Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy

Dancing with the Stars' sixteenth-season couple Zendaya Coleman and her professional partner Val Chmerkovskiy have reclaimed their spot at the top of the leaderboard.

The Disney Channel star and Val finished in first place on the Dancing with the Stars judges' leaderboard after they performed an Argentine tango that received 29 out of 30 possible points -- a score which featured the first 10s of the season -- from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli during Monday night's fifth performance show of the season.

Monday night's celebrity and professional pairings participated in "Len's Side by Side Challenge" which required each celebrity and his or her partner to dance alongside a female and male professional doing the same exact routine. Both couples attempted to move in sync with one another, and the side by side comparison allowed the judges to see how well the show's stars could measure up to its pros.

Zendaya and Val were joined by Dancing with the Stars professionals Chelsie Hightower and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Former American Idol finalist and country singer Kellie Pickler and partner Derek Hough finished in second place on the leaderboard with 27 points after they danced a foxtrot routine alongside Anna Trebunskaya and dance troupe member Henry Byalikov.

NFL football player Jacoby Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff finished in third place on Monday night's leaderboard. Jacoby and Karina performed the jive, which earned 26 points from the judges, and were joined by Maksim and Anna.

Fourth place went to 2012 Olympic gold medal winning gymnast Alexandra "Aly" Raisman and partner Mark Ballas after they danced a samba routine that received 25 points. Aly and Mark danced on the stage alongside Tony Dovolani and dance troupe member -- and former So You Think You Can Dance finalist -- Witney Carson.

The Bachelor star Sean Lowe and partner Peta Murgatroyd finished in fifth place on the leaderboard. Joined by Tristan MacManus and Chelsie, Sean and Peta performed a quickstep routine which earned 24 points from the judges.

Two couples finished tied for sixth place on the leaderboard with 21 points: Soap star Ingo Rademacher and partner Kym Johnson and boxer Victor Ortiz and partner Lindsay Arnold.

Ingo and Kym performed the cha cha with Tony and dance troupe member Emma Slater, while Victor and Lindsay danced the Viennese waltz alongside Tristan and Emma.

Eighth -- and last -- place was also a tie between actor and comedian Andy Dick and partner Sharna Burgess and actor and comedian D.L. Hughley and partner Cheryl Burke. Both couples earned only 18 points apiece.

Andy and Sharna were joined by dance troupe member Sasha Farber and Emma for their paso doble routine, while D.L. and Cheryl performed the tango alongside Sasha and Chelsie.

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