Former The Hills star Audrina Patridge and partner Tony Dovolani topped Dancing with the Stars' judging leaderboard during Monday night's live performance show, ending the two-week reign of actress Jennifer Grey and partner Derek Hough.
Grey and Hough didn't fall far. The couple finished in a three-way tie for second place with singer Brandy Norwood and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy as well as former NBA basketball player Rick Fox and partner Cheryl Burke.
All three couples performed samba routines which received 24 points from the judges.
After finishing tied for last and next-to-last place during the competition's first two weeks, actress and comedian Margaret Cho and partner Louis van Amstel finally achieved the dubious accomplishment of securing last place for themselves.
Cho and van Amstel finished in tenth place after dancing a samba routine which received only 18 points from the judges.
"I was encouraged at the start... but as the dance progressed you lost your timing and it got a little bit heavy in the legs," Goodman told Cho.
Teen mom Bristol Palin and partner Mark Ballas also struggled with their foxtrot and finished in ninth place on the judges' leaderboard after receiving 19 points.
Actress Florence Henderson and partner Corky Ballas and Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and partner Karina Smirnoff finished in a tie for seventh place with 20 points each. Henderson and Ballas danced a waltz while Sorrentino and Smirnoff performed a foxtrot.
Fifth place also represented a tie between recently retired NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and partner Anna Trebunskaya and Disney Channel star Kyle Massey and partner Lacey Schwimmer.
Warner and Trebunskaya performed a foxtrot and Massey and Schwimmer danced a waltz, but both couples received 23 points from the judges.
The judges' scoring and home viewer votes that were cast after Monday night's performances will now be combined and one of the 10 celebrity and professional pairings will be eliminated on Dancing with the Stars' third eleventh-season results show tonight at 8PM ET/PT.
Bolton will be serving as a last-minute replacement for former Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle, who canceled her planned appearance on Monday due to illness.
