Dancing with the Stars judges' leaderboard was topped by Maria Menounos and Derek Hough during Monday night's broadcast of the fourteenth season's ninth performance show and semifinals round, which featured the Top 4 finalists performing two individual ballroom routines.

The entertainment reporter and Extra host and her professional partner finished in first place on the judges' leaderboard after they received 59 out of 60 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli during the live broadcast.

Menounos and Hough danced an Argentine tango routine which received a perfect score of 30 points and followed it with a jive that earned 29 additional points.

Telenovela star William Levy and partner Cheryl Burke finished second on the leaderboard, trailing Menounos and Hough by only one point, with 58 total points. They danced a tango routine which received 28 points and then performed a samba which earned them a perfect score of 30 points. 

NFL player Donald Driver and partner Peta Murgatroyd, who earned 57 total points, placed third on Monday night's judging leaderboard. They first took to the stage and danced a waltz that received 28 points and then returned to the dance floor and performed a samba routine which earned 29 additional points.

Opera singer Katherine Jenkins and partner Mark Ballas finished in fourth -- and last -- place on the leaderboard with a grand total of 56 points. The couple performed an initial quickstep routine which earned them 29 points and followed it with a salsa dance that received 27 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 four celebrity and professional pairings will be ousted during Dancing with the Stars' eighth fourteenth-season results show tonight at 9PM ET/PT.

Next week's Dancing with the Stars final performance show will feature the three remaining couples competing in the finals to ultimately be crowned the fourteenth-season champions of the Dancing with the Stars ballroom and win the mirror ball trophy. The show's finale will then air the following Tuesday night.
