Adam Taylor/ABC(LOS ANGELES) –- The stars of Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars were handed artistic control of their dances tonight and asked to re-invent iconic routines from past shows.

When the night ended, actress Kelly Monaco and TV personality Melissa Rycroft were tied for first place, each having received 27 out of a possible 30 points for their respective routines.  TV personality Bristol Palin brought up the rear with 22.5 points.

The stakes are particularly high for competitors this week, because two all-star participants will be voted off Tuesday. It’s usually just the one dancer with the lowest scores – after judges’ and viewers’ votes are combined – who gets voted off during the weekly results show.

The stars remaining at the end of the competition will battle each other for the championship.

Singer-dancer-choreographer Paula Abdul will be a guest judge next week. Also next week, the all-stars will pick the dance styles for each other, including some new styles that have never before been performed on the show.

The Totals:

  • Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani: 27
  • Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy: 27
  • Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough: 26.5
  • Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower: 25.5
  • Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd:  25.5
  • Apolo Ohno and Karina Smirnoff:  25.5
  • Sabrina Bryan and Louis Van Amstel:  25.5
  • Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke: 25
  • Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya: 24
  • Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 24
  • Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas:  22.5
