Actress Jennifer Grey and partner Derek Hough topped Dancing with the Stars' judging leaderboard during Monday night's live performance show -- grabbing the top spot back from former The Hills star Audrina Patridge and partner Tony Dovolani, who had ended Grey and Hough's prior two-week reign during last week's performances.
Monday night's performance show featured a special format in which the contestants danced to acoustic music on a round, elevated stage for the first time in Dancing with the Stars' 11-season history.
"It's our double score showdown! For each dance the judges will be awarding two scores: one for performance and one for technique," Dancing with the Stars co-host Brooke Burke explained.
Grey and Hough finished in first place on the eleventh season's Week 4 leaderboard after their Argentine tango earned 56 out of 60 possible points (27 technical points, 29 performance points) from the judges -- including a pair of performance 10's from Inaba and Tonioli.
"The first 10 of the season!" Burke noted.
All three judges had gushed about Grey and Hough's tango before revealing their scores.
"It was a dance that combined excellent technique [and] great performance skills... one of my favorite tangos beautifully played, well done," Goodman said.
"This is primetime delight! Fantastic! Technically, the intricacy of what you did is beyond belief, the musicality unsurpassed tonight. You've done an incredible job!" Tonioli proclaimed.
"The precision was incredible, the passion was incredible -- that was amazing!" Inaba added.
Singer Brandy Norwood and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy finished in second place on the leaderboard after they received 48 total points (22 technical points, 26 performance points) for their rumba routine.
Patridge and Dovolani received 46 total points (24 technical points, 22 performance points) for their Argentine tango, which left them third on the judges' leaderboard.
Disney Channel star Kyle Massey and partner Lacey Schwimmer finished fourth on the leaderboard with 40 total points (18 technical points, 22 performance points) -- one point ahead of former NBA basketball player Rick Fox and partner Cheryl Burke, who received 39 total points (19 technical points, 20 performance points).
Massey and Schwimmer performed a rumba while Fox and Burke danced an Argentine tango.
Actress Florence Henderson and partner Corky Ballas finished in sixth place after they received 35 total points (17 technical points, 18 performance points) for their rumba and were followed by recently retired NFL quarterback Kurt Warner and partner Anna Trebunskaya, who earned 34 total points (15 technical points, 19 performance points) for their own rumba.
Teen mom Bristol Palin and partner Mark Ballas finished in eighth place on the leaderboard after their rumba received only 32 total points (18 technical points, 14 performance points) from the judges.
"That blows," Ballas said.
"That really sucks," Palin added.
Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and partner Karina Smirnoff finished in last place after their Argentine tango received only 28 total points (12 technical points, 16 performance points) from the judges.
"That's definitely a situation," Sorrentino observed.
The judges' scoring and home viewer votes that were cast after Monday night's performances will now be combined and one of the nine celebrity and professional pairings will be eliminated on Dancing with the Stars' fourth eleventh-season results show tonight at 8PM ET/PT.
