The former talk show host and her professional partner topped the leaderboard again during Monday night's broadcast of the thirteenth season's fourth performance show, which featured the Top 9 finalists performing to the most famous music scores in cinematic history.
Lake and Hough finished in first place on the leaderboard for the third time in a row after they performed a tango. The routine, danced to the theme music from the movie Psycho, received 29 out of 30 possible points and the season's first 10s from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.
Fashion expert and former Queer Eye star Carson Kressley and partner Anna Trebunskaya finished at the bottom of the leaderboard in ninth place with 20 points after they danced a Viennese waltz to the theme music of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl that wasn't nearly as well received by the judges.
Iraqi war veteran and All My Children soap star J.R. Martinez and partner Karina Smirnoff finished in second place on the judges' leaderboard after they received 26 points for their foxtrot routine choreographed to The Pink Panther's music score.
American women's soccer star Hope Solo and Keeping Up with the Kardashians sibling Rob Kardashian finished tied for third place on the leaderboard with their partners after they each received 24 points from the judges.
Solo danced a foxtrot with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy to Toy Story's "You've Got a Friend in Me," while Kardashian performed a paso doble routine with partner Cheryl Burke to Superman's theme song.
Actor David Arquette and partner Kym Johnson finished in fifth place on the judges' leaderboard for their Raiders of the Lost Ark paso doble which earned them 23 points.
Sixth place represented a tie between three couples: singer and actress Chynna Phillips and partner Tony Dovolani, legal commentator Nancy Grace and partner Tristan MacManus, and transgender advocate Chaz Bono and partner Lacey Schwimmer.
All three couples received 21 points from the judges after Phillips and Dovolani performed a tango to the music score of Mission Impossible, Grace and MacManus danced a paso doble routine to Flash Gordon's music score, and Bono and Schwimmer performed a paso doble to the theme music from Rocky.
The judges' scoring and home viewer votes that were cast after Monday night's performances will now be combined and one of the nine celebrity and professional pairings will be eliminated on Dancing with the Stars' fourth thirteenth-season results show tonight at 9PM ET/PT.
