In addition to mixing up the leaderboard with an array of surprising routines, eleven couples relived the magic of prom on Monday's Dancing with the Stars. Read on to find out what the celebs scored during week three of the competition!
Kellie Pickler was crowned belle of the ball midway through the show tonight for her lively, retro-themed Jive. With 25/30 points (8,9,8), the singer and her pro partner Derek Hough beat out two couples for first: Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy (who performed a Viennese Waltz worth 24/30 points) and Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff (who performed a Rumba for 24/30 points).
Wynonna Judd aspired to pull herself from the depths of last week's leaderboard, but the country superstar managed to sink lower than ever for her Samba which was criticized by judges as stiff and dispassionate. Consequently, the panel dealt out three fives to the star and her pro partner Tony Dovolani, putting them in dead last with 15/30 points for the night.
Here's how all of the contestants stacked up (from best to worst):
Kellie Pickler & Derek Hough – Jive: 25/30 (8,9,8)
Zendaya Coleman & Valentin Chmerkovskiy – Viennese Waltz: 24/30 (8,8,8)
