'Dancing with the Stars' leaderboard topped by Chelsea Kane, Romeo
By Reality TV World staff, 04/26/2011
Dancing with the Stars' sixth twelfth-season performance show proved to be a true pleasure for Disney Channel star Chelsea Kane and rapper Romeo.
Romeo and Kane each received 28 out of 30 possible points from Dancing with the Stars judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli and finished tied for first place on the judges' leaderboard during Monday night's broadcast of the twelfth season's sixth performance show, which featured a "Guilty Pleasures" theme.
NFL football star Hines Ward and professional partner Kym Johnson finished in third place on the leaderboard with 27 points after they performed a Viennese waltz.
Actress and former Kirstie Alley's Big Life star Kirstie Alley and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy placed fourth on the judges' leaderboard with 26 points. They danced a samba.
Kendra and former The Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson and partner Louis van Amstel also danced a samba, however they only received 25 points from the judges, leaving them in fifth place.
Actor Ralph Macchio and partner Karina Smirnoff finished in sixth place on the judging leaderboard after they danced a paso doble which received 24 points. The performance would have received a higher score, however Smirnoff slipped and fell on Macchio's long coat during the routine, resulting in the judges reducing their scores.
WWE wrestler Chris Jericho and partner Cheryl Burke finished in seventh -- and last -- place on the judges' leaderboard after they danced a tango which received 22 points.
The judges' scoring and home viewer votes that were cast after Monday night's performances will now be combined and one of the seven celebrity and professional pairings will be eliminated on Dancing with the Stars' fifth twelfth-season results show on Tuesday night.
