LOS ANGELES (AP) — J.R. Martinez didn't need any more love from the "Dancing with the Stars" judges.

The U.S. Army veteran and his professional partner Karina Smirnoff earned a pair of perfect scores — 30 out of a possible 30 for a total of 60 — on the ABC ballroom competition Monday.

Tied in second place behind Martinez with a combined score of 52 were Hope Solo and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Ricki Lake and partner Derek Hough. Rob Kardashian and partner Cheryl Burke stepped into third place with a total score of 51, while Nancy Grace and partner Tristan MacManus tangoed into last place behind the pack with a combined score of 44.

The fairytale will end for one of the six remaining celebrities Tuesday after judges' scores are combined with viewer votes.
