'Dancing with the Stars' Final Four: Ricki Lake Takes the Lead

ABC/CRAIG SJODIN(LOS ANGELES) -- Ricki Lake and partner Derek Hough now lead the pack on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, after a Monday night semifinal round that required the final four contestants and their pro partners to perform three dances, including a cha cha cha relay.

Lake and Hough received perfect marks of 10 from all three judges for their first dance, a samba that Bruno Tonioli said was “hot, bright and brilliant.”  The couple also delivered a solid Argentine tango, and finished second in the cha cha cha relay.  The two lead with a total judges’ score of 67 points.

Soccer star Hope Solo and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy are at the bottom of the leader board with a total judges’ score of 49 points.

Here are the semifinal rankings and point totals:

1. Ricki Lake and Derek Hough: 67 points
2. Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke: 65 points
3. J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff: 56 points
4. Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 49 points

One of the four couples will be sent home on the Dancing with the Stars' results show airing Tuesday night on ABC at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time.  Cobra Starship will be the musical guest.  The Muppets will also make an appearance.
