Originally posted 04/22/2013 10:40PM

Stevie Wonder was the guest of honor Monday night on Dancing with the Stars. Between performances by the iconic singer, the eight remaining couples competed with two dances each to his hits.

Once again, Kellie Pickler and Zendaya were atop the leaderboard – and both earned 10s for their respective routines.

Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy's cha cha to "Do I Do" was "full of snap, crackle and pop," according to Len Goodman. Carrie Ann Inaba called the routine "perfection in motion." They earned 29 points.

Kellie and Derek Hough's quickstep to "Part-Time Lover" was "the best dance I've seen on season 16," Len said. Carrie Ann added, "Everything about it was perfect except there was some space in your hold." They also earned 29 points.

But Kellie and Derek finished slightly ahead of Zendaya and Val after the second routine, a team dance in which four couples performed at the same time.

Lisa Vanderpump is a restaurateur, designer, author, philanthropist and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She's competing on season 16 of Dancing with the Stars with new pro Gleb Savchenko – and blogging about it on PEOPLE.com

My journey on Dancing with the Stars has come to an end and this will be the last week that I blog for you. I am back to work now, and it has been difficult to readjust after six intense weeks of dancing.

I haven't seen my partner Gleb Savchenko purposefully for several days, because I'm mourned the loss of the whole experience and I felt it was essential that I throw myself back into work as a distraction.

The pair have spent hours clutching one another as they rehearse for Dancing with the Stars. And, in particular, they appear to have spent hours more analyzing Jones's torso – which he bared Monday during the couple's impressive 24-point rumba.

"He took the shirt off [in rehearsal], and I was like, 'Hello! Let's investigate! What are these?!' " Smirnoff told PEOPLE after Monday's show, as the Super Bowl champion stripped down once again to reveal the dozens of tattoos emblazoned on his body.

There can only be one king and queen of any prom – and Dancing's prom-themed show was no exception. So, which couple made magical memories in the ballroom Monday night?

Derek Hough and partner Kellie Pickler reigned once again this week, according to tough judge Len Goodman, who declared the singer "queen" for their "Footloose" jive. Carrie Ann Inaba called the performance "ridiculously amazing." They earned the top score of 25 points.

Hot on their heels were early frontrunners Zendaya and partner Val Chmerkovskiy, who earned 24 points for a Viennese waltz that Bruno Tonioli called as "enchanting and charming as Venice in the moonlight."

NFL star Jacoby Jones was sexy and shirtless for an impressive, 24-point rumba with partner Karina Smirnoff. "This had a refinement," Len said. "It had quality of movement."
