Their team Paso Doble with Rob Kardashian and partner Cheryl Burke, plus Hope Solo and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, helped those teams take the top three spots.

Lake and Hough got 27 out of 30 points for their Paso Doble and 26 out of 30 for their group effort, leaving them with a total of 53 out of 60.

What did the judges think? Len Goodman praised Lake's shape and footwork, Bruno Tonioli called her a blizzard of passion and Carrie Ann Inaba said the dance, based on "Little Red Riding Hood," was gorgeous.

"We worked really, really hard and we worked really well as a team," Lake said. "I'm so proud of us."

After barely being able to walk after a rough rehearsal, Kardashian still managed to land in second place.

He and Burke got 25 out of 30 for their Tango to the theme of "The Addams Family" and 26 out of 30 for their group effort for a total of 51 points.

"All my legs are wrapped up crazy," Kardashian said. "I definitely pulled my groin, my hamstring, everything."

Solo and Chmerkovskiy, who was working with a broken toe, got 24 out of 30 for their Samba. They ended up with a total of 50 out of 60.

J.R. Martinez and partner Karina Smirnoff finished fourth with 48 out of 60 points.

David Arquette and Kym Johnson ended up in fifth place with 47 points.

Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus finished last with 44 points.

Their team Tango scored three fewer judges' points than team Paso.

"If America votes for us and pulls us through, I guarantee you starting Wednesday morning I'm going to bust my butt and I'm going to come back next week and I'm going to have something that's going to put me at the top of the leaderboard, because that's where I want to be," Martinez said.

"This is a tough point in the competition and we've come a long way," Johnson said. "It would be great to make it to the end, but we'll see."

One of the six teams goes home Tuesday night.

But the Halloween treats continue on the results show with a performance by pop star Justin Bieber and R&B group Boyz II Men. They'll be singing "Fa La La" from Bieber's Christmas album, "Under the Mistletoe."
