Aly and her professional partner Mark Ballas and Jacoby and partner Karina Smirnoff finished tied for first place on the leaderboard after each couple received a total of 59 out of 60 possible points following their two routines -- which were each eligible to receive up to 30 possible points -- from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

Aly and Mark danced the rumba which earned a perfect score of 30 from the judges and then followed it up with an Afro Jazz routine which received an additional 29 points.

Jacoby and Karina initially performed an Argentine tango that received a perfect score of 30 as well. They then took the stage again with a Lindy Hop routine which earned them 29 more points.

Former American Idol finalist and country singer Kellie Pickler and partner Derek Hough finished in third place on the judges' leaderboard with a total of 58 points. They first danced the Argentine tango worth a perfect score of 30 points and then performed a Flamenco routine, which received 28 points from the judges.

Fourth place went to Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman and partner Val Chmerkovskiy. The pair earned a total score of 55 points after they performed a quickstep routine which received 25 points and a hip hop dance that earned 30 additional points from the judges.

Soap star Ingo Rademacher and partner Kym Johnson finished in fifth -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard with 51 total points. After taking the stage with a samba routine that received 24 points from the judges, the couple came back to perform a Charleston routine which earned 27 more points.

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