Dancing with the Stars couple Lindsey Stirling and her professional partner Mark Ballas topped the judges' leaderboard during Monday night's performance show on ABC.

Lindsey, an internationally-recognized violinist, and Mark finished "Guilty Pleasures Night" in first place after receiving 27 out of 30 possible points -- the highest score so far this season -- from Dancing with the Stars judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman for their jive routine.

The jive set to "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham! was inspired by Lindsey's guilty pleasure, which is lounging around in her pajamas all day.

Len called the fun routine "the dance of the season," while Bruno said the routine was "brilliant." Carrie Ann added that Lindsey and Mark's jive will go down as one of her "favorite numbers of all time."

Singer and actor Jordan Fisher and partner Lindsay Arnold finished in second place on the judges' leaderboard with 25 points -- which included two 9's from Carrie Ann and Bruno.

Jordan's guilty pleasure is reading comic books, so he and Lindsay performed a super hero-inspired Charleston routine to "The Glory Days" by Michael Giacchino.

Third place turned out to be a tie between TV personality Vanessa Lachey and fellow celebrity Property Brothers star Drew Scott at 23 points on the leaderboard.

Vanessa danced with previously-eliminated pro dancer Alan Bersten because her regular partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, was dealing with a personal issue. Vanessa and Alan's jazz routine was inspired by her guilty pleasure of having a girls' night out, and they performed to "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper.

Drew's guilty pleasure is watching police and crime shows on TV, so he and partner Emma Slater danced a detective and suspect-themed Argentine tango to "Red Right Hand" by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Fifth place on the judges' leaderboard belonged to former Paralympic swimmer Victoria Arlen and partner Val Chmerkovskiy. The pair received 22 points for their quickstep routine set to one of Victoria's longtime favorite songs, "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba.

The rest of the Season 25 couples -- except for one pair -- all earned 21 points from the judges, which landed them in a tie for sixth place.

Former NBA star and coach Derek Fisher's guilty pleasure is binge watching The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Derek and partner Sharna Burgess therefore danced a cha cha to the show's theme song.

WWE wrestler and Total Divas star Nikki Bella and partner Artem Chigvintsev took the stage with a sexy Viennese waltz to celebrate Nikki's love of romance novels, particularly 50 Shades of Grey, by dancing to "Love on the Brain" by Rihanna.

Actor and racecar driver Frankie Muniz and partner Witney Carson danced a samba routine to the *NSYNC song "It's Gonna Be Me" in which Frankie lived a dream by pretending he was a member of a boy band.

TV personality and 98 Degrees member Nick Lachey and partner Peta Murgatroyd embraced Nick's guilty pleasure, an obsession with romantic-comedy movies, and performed a jazz routine to "Jump (For My Love)" by The Pointer Sisters.

And former NFL football wide receiver and six-time Pro Bowler Terrell Owens and partner Cheryl Burke danced the salsa to the song "The Breaks" by Kurtis Blow to represent Terrell's fascination with break-dancing.

The couple who finished in eleventh -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard with only 19 points was Pretty Little Liars actress Sasha Pieterse and partner Gleb Savchenko. Sasha and Gleb performed a jazz routine to "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch) representing Sasha's baking hobby.
