The Disney Channel star and Val finished in first place with a total of 58 out of 60 possible points on the judges' leaderboard following their two routines -- an individual foxtrot performance and a "trio dance."

In addition to dancing their individual routines, Monday night's show featured the competition's six remaining celebrities performing a routine with two partners, their original dance partner and a previously-eliminated professional or dance troupe member. Each dance was eligible to receive up to 30 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

After Zendaya and Val earned 28 points for their foxtrot, they performed a salsa routine with Gleb Savchenko which received a score of 30 from the judges -- the first perfect score of the season.

Alexandra "Aly" Raisman, a 2012 Olympic gold medal winning gymnast, and partner Mark Ballas finished in second place on the leaderboard with 56 total points. They initially danced an Argentine tango which received 29 points from the judges and then were joined by Henry Byalikov for a jive performance that earned an additional 27 points.

Third place went to former American Idol finalist and country singer Kellie Pickler and partner Derek Hough after they racked in a total of 55 points from the judges. Kellie and Derek first took the stage with a Viennese waltz that received 28 points and followed it with their trio performance which featured Tristan MacManus. The trio's paso doble earned 27 points.

NFL football player Jacoby Jones and partner Karina Smirnoff landed in fourth place on the judges' leaderboard with 52 total points. After dancing their individual Viennese waltz which received 27 points, the couple danced alongside Cheryl Burke for a paso doble routine that earned 25 additional points. 

Soap star Ingo Rademacher and partner Kym Johnson finished in fifth place on the leaderboard with 48 total points. The pair performed a foxtrot which earned 24 points and then returned to the stage with Lindsay Arnold for their jive routine, which also received 24 points from the judges.

The Bachelor star Sean Lowe and partner Peta Murgatroyd finished in sixth -- and last -- place with only 42 total points. Sean and Peta danced a tango that received 21 points and then a jazz routine for their trio performance which earned 21 points as well. The couple danced with Sharna Burgess.

The scores of last night's judging leaderboard will now be combined with the home viewer voting results to determine which of the six couples in jeopardy will be eliminated on Dancing with the Stars' seventh sixteenth-season results show Tuesday night at 9PM ET/PT. Next week's performance show begins the semifinals.
