'Dancing With The Stars: All Stars': Shawn Johnson's perfect 30 only goodenough for second place

Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and her temporary partner, Mark Ballas, received 30 out of 30 points from the judges for their Tango and Paso Doble fusion on 'Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars,' which aired on November 5, 2012. Johnson's original 'All-Stars' partner, Derek Hough, cheered Johnson on from the sidelines this week following doctor's orders to not perform after he sustained an injury.

Melissa Rycroft and partner Tony Dovolani came next with 29 out of 30. But the added "swing dance marathon" for extra points swung the overall scores in all sorts of directions for five of the seven teams.

In the end, Rycroft and Dovolani came out on top with 39 points.

"I think what last week proved is that the top of the leaderboard means absolutely nothing in this competition, so at least we've done our part," Rycroft said.

Though Johnson was the only contestant to receiveda perfect score, she said she was happy with the additional eight points that landed her in second place.

"After (Hough) got hurt and Mark stepped in, kind of having to adjust all over it, silver's pretty good," Johnson said.

The bronze this week went to Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy for their 27-point dance and 9-point bonus.

"This is where my game begins," Monaco said. "I have stamina and I'm willing to put in the work. I don't have to work for the next three weeks, so this might be my time."

Smack dab in the middle of the pack this week was a competitive Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke with 34.5 total points.

Smith said they planned to "go back in the studio and re-tool ourselves and just try to get re-focused and committed to the dances that we have to do."

Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd got 33.5 total points and Apolo Ohno and Karina Smirnoff came next with 33. Both couples were hurt by the marathon.

"This marathon was absolutely a nightmare," Marini said.

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were at the bottom with 28 points total.
