Four of the five women earned impressive scores on "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday, April 3. It was the third week of competition on the popular ABC show. It was quite noticeable that the women claimed the top of the leaderboard during their Vegas-themed dances. One woman earned the highest score of 34 points while three other women followed closely behind her.

High scores

Four of the five women received scores in the 30s. Erika Jayne was the only woman who did not receive a high score. She and partner Gleb Savchenko received a score of 26.

  • Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy – 34
  • Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev – 33
  • Heather Morris and Maksim Chmerkovskiy – 33 (Alan Bersten substituted for Maks who had surgery on his leg).
  • Simone Biles and Sasha Farber – 32

Normani Kordei is at the top of the leaderboard all by herself.

Nancy Kerrigan and Heather Morris tied with just one point behind Normani. Simone Biles finished two points behind Normani. All four of them were neck and neck, but next week's score will make a difference when they dance during their memorable year-themed dances.

To be fair to the men, David Ross with partner Lindsay Arnold earned a score of 31 because of his "Magic Mike" routine. That means he is right up there with the four women. All the other men received scores in their 20s, ranging from 24 to 28.

Averages as of now

In spite of this week's high scores, the averages didn't change that much. In fact, even though Simone Biles came in fourth with three women ahead of her, it did not hurt her average.

The latest predictions say she is still the frontrunner to win the championship like her gymnast teammate Laurie Hernandez did last season.

Simone and Normani are tied for the highest overall average. Normani finished on top of the judges’ leaderboard with a score of 32 out of 40 because of her almost flawless cha cha cha. Heather ranked third with her totals.

Nancy Kerrigan was the first to dance, and she earned an impressive score of 33, but she is in fifth place with her totals.

The scores and averages change week by week, so nobody knows what will happen by the end of the series. The last time all women ended up in the finals was in Season 18 with winner Meryl Davis, runner-up Amy Purdy and third place finisher Candace Cameron Bure.
