Dancing with the Stars' third twelfth-season performance show proved to be the charm for NFL football star Hines Ward and supermodel and former A Model Life star Petra Nemcova.

Ward and Nemcova each received 25 out of 30 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli and finished tied for first place on the judges' leaderboard during Monday night's broadcast of the twelfth season's third performance show.

Ward danced a samba with professional partner Kym Johnson, while Nemcova performed a waltz with partner Dmitry Chaplin.

Two additional couples -- Disney Channel star Chelsea Kane and partner Mark Ballas, and Kendra and former The Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson and partner Louis van Amstel -- finished in a tie for third place on the leaderboard after they each received 23 points from the judges.

Kane and Ballas performed a cha cha, while Wilkinson and van Amstel danced a rumba.

Fifth place also represented a tie between three couples: actor Ralph Macchio and professional partner Karina Smirnoff, WWE wrestler Chris Jericho and partner Cheryl Burke, and actress and former Kirstie Alley's Big Life star Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

All three couples performed rumba routines which each earned 21 points from the judges.

Rapper Romeo and retired boxer and former The Contender host Sugar Ray Leonard also finished in an eighth-place tie on the judges' leaderboard after they and their partners each performed dances which received 20 points.

Romeo and partner Chelsie Hightower danced a rumba, while Leonard and partner Anna Trebunskaya performed a paso doble.

Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams and partner Tony Dovolani finished in tenth -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard after they performed a foxtrot which only received 15 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' second twelfth-season results show Tuesday at 9PM ET/PT.
