The former American Idol finalist and country singer and Derek finished in first place with 54 out of 60 possible points on the judges' leaderboard following their two routines -- an individual quickstep performance and a "team dance."

In addition to dancing their individual routines, Monday night's show featured the competition's eight remaining couples being divided into two teams in which one team worked together to perform a samba routine and the other danced a paso doble. Each dance was eligible to receive up to 30 possible points -- which would be added to each contestant's individual score -- from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

Kellie and Derek's individual quickstep received 29 out of 30 possible points from the judges. They also performed a dance with "Team Samba" that earned 25 additional points.

The 2012 Olympic gold medal winning gymnast Alexandra "Aly" Raisman and partner Mark Ballas finished second on the leaderboard with 52 total points. They danced a foxtrot which received 27 points and followed it with their "Team Samba" dance that earned 25 points from the judges.

Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman and partner Val Chmerkovskiy finished in third place on the judges' leaderboard with 51 total points. After dancing a cha cha that earned 29 points, Zendaya and Val returned to the dance floor and performed a paso doble with their team that received 22 points from the judges.

The Bachelor star Sean Lowe and partner Peta Murgatroyd and soap star Ingo Rademacher and partner Kym Johnson tied for fourth place on the leaderboard with 46 total points.

In addition to the 25 points Sean and Peta earned for their "Team Samba" dance, they also performed an individual samba routine which received 21 points from the judges. Ingo and Kym originally danced a tango routine worthy of 24 points and then followed it with their "Team Paso" dance, which added 22 points to their individual score.

Sixth place went to NFL football player Jacoby Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff. The pair danced an individual quickstep routine which received 23 points from the judges and the "Team Paso" performance that earned them an extra 22 points. They walked away from the night with 45 total points.

Actor and comedian Andy Dick and partner Sharna Burgess finished seventh on the judges' leaderboard with 43 total points. They performed an individual samba which received 18 points from the judges and the "Team Samba" that earned 25 additional points.

Boxer Victor Ortiz and partner Lindsay Arnold finished in eighth -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard with 40 total points after they danced an individual rumba that received 18 points and the "Team Paso" dance which earned 22 points.

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