Two couples finished tied for third place with 22 points each from the judges: Teen mom Bristol Palin and partner Mark Ballas as well as Disney Channel star Kyle Massey and partner Lacey Schwimmer. Both couples danced quickstep routines during Dancing with the Stars' Monday night performance show.
Fifth place also represented a three-way tie between former NBA basketball player Rick Fox and partner Cheryl Burke, recently retired NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and partner Anna Trebunskaya, and singer Brandy Norwood and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. All three couples performed jives which received 21 points during Monday night's show.
Singer Michael Bolton and partner Chelsie Hightower -- who finished next to last on last week's leaderboard -- received the worst score of the night after they performed a jive which earned only 12 points from the judges.
"I don't think the world is ready for your interpretation of the jive," Goodman said.
"I think this is probably the worst jive in 11 seasons," Tonioli added.
Last week's two surviving lowest-scoring couples -- actress and comedian Margaret Cho and partner Louis van Amstel and Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and partner Karina Smirnoff -- finished just ahead of Bolton and Hightower in a tie for ninth place. While Cho and van Amstel performed a jive and Sorrentino and Smirnoff danced a quickstep, they each received 18 points from the judges.
Actress Florence Henderson and partner Corky Ballas received 19 points for their quickstep routine, leaving them in eighth place on the leaderboard.
The judges' scoring and home viewer votes that were cast after Monday night's performances will now be combined and one of the 11 celebrity and professional pairings will be eliminated on Dancing with the Stars' second eleventh-season results show tonight at 8PM ET/PT.
