Kellie Pickler's trio with Derek Hough and Tristan MacManus, meanwhile, divides the judges as Len Goodman expects more technique in her dramatic paso doble.
The remaining six pairs of "Dancing with the Stars" danced twice on Monday night, May 6. They first performed a traditional partners' dance before being joined by another pro dancer for a trio dance.
Zendaya Coleman and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy kicked it off with a cutely choreographed foxtrot. Len Goodman said, "The longer it goes on, the stronger you get," and the judges gave her 28 points.
For the trio dance, Zendaya was joined by Gleb Savchenko to dance a salsa. The Disney star got the spotlight despite the companion of the two pro dancers as Len commented, "These two guys gave up their talent to make you a star." Carrie Ann Inaba called her "the queen of the salsa" and it wasn't exaggerating as Zendaya earned 30 points, marking the first perfect score of the season.
Dancing a tango, Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd could be in jeopardy as the judges criticized his dance. "You're hot and you're cold, you're on and you're off," Bruno Tonioli said, advising him to "concentrate and sustain your dancing." For Len, "it was a little bit ugly." The insurance agent only got 21 points.
Sean got the same score for his trio jazz with Sharna Burgess. "You got out of sync a few too many times," Carrie Ann complained, but praised him for doing the "ambitious routine." Bruno, meanwhile, said, "Plenty of magic with a little bit of tragic."
Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff danced a Viennese waltz and Len "loved it." Carrie Ann thought "that was absolutely stunning." The NFL player earned 27 points.
Cheryl Burke later joined Jacoby and Karina for a paso doble. "Up until now you've just been a pretender. You've become a contender tonight," Len raved, as Bruno called it "raw...powerful...untamed." He got 25 points.
Bruno also sang praise for Ingo Rademacher, saying he "did a great job" with his foxtrot, which he danced along with pro partner Kym Johnson. Carrie Ann thought "that was by far your best posture in the hold." The soap opera star earned 24 points.
His jive with Kym and Lindsay Arnold earned the same points. Len said, "It was full on, it was fun, I liked it," and Bruno wanted "some more." Carrie Ann added, "I thought when we lost Andy that we were gonna lose this heart and this fun. And you brought it back."
While Zendaya was dubbed the queen of salsa that night, Kellie Pickler's dance with Derek Hough earned her the title of a queen of the Viennese waltz from Bruno. Carrie Ann also raved, "You went beyond the steps... You have something incredible." The country singer got 28 points.
Kellie's paso doble with Derek and Tristan MacManus, however, divided the judges. Bruno called it a "masterpiece theater" and Carrie Ann found it "so fantastic," but Len disagreed. "I was expecting more than a bunch of flashing lights and rashing music," the head judge said. Kellie got 27 points for her second routine.
Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas danced an Argentine tango for their first dance of the night. Carrie Ann was "blown away," as Len commented, "It was smooth, it was seductive, it was wonderful." Aly earned 29 points.
Aly later returned for a jive trio with Mark and Henry Byalikov. Len said it had a "terriffic combination," and Carrie Ann suggested, "Keep going in this direction, 'cause it's working." The judges gave her 27 points.
