“Dancing With the Stars” unveiled its new ballroom and new cast Monday, and when all the dancing was done, singer Chynna Phillips and actor J.R. Martinez were tied at the top.

Phillips and Martinez each earned 22 points out of 30 for their Viennese waltzes. Basketball star Ron Artest landed in last place with 14 points. Head judge Len Goodman said the Lakers forward’s footwork was “atrocious” and his cha-cha was “all sizzle and no sausage.”
