Dancing with the Stars Results Show Recap: Elimination Determines Final 3

Dancing with the Stars said goodbye to another contestant on Wednesday night. The elimination determined which three contestants moved on to the finals. Chelsea Kane and Hines Ward were declared safe, which put Kirstie Alley and Ralph Macchio in danger of going home.

It was Ralph and his partner Karina Smirnoff who were booted from the competition. “I will never forget how the fans have driven us through every week. It inspired me. I would run here every Monday for us to present what we worked on,” said the Karate Kid star.

“I am proud to have been your dance partner and even more proud to be your friend,” Ralph told Karina.

Chelsea, Hines and Kirstie will compete for the mirror ball trophy next week on the season finale.
