Finals set for ‘Dancing with the Stars'; Ralph Macchio is out

SHARE Finals set for ‘Dancing with the Stars'; Ralph Macchio is out

In the beginning it was all about two of the favorites on Tuesday’s “Dancing with the Stars” semi-finals results show. And they were saved early on: Hines Ward and Chelsea Kane.

Then it was down to two of the most popular contenders: Ralph Macchio and Kirstie Alley.

And when the “elimination music” was over, the Karate Kid was sent packing. The decision was not entirely unexpected, as Macchio had a rough go of things all season long in terms of judges’ scores, regardless of how good he danced.

So it’s on to the finals next week, including the freestyle round that generally separates the dancers from those who just perform choreography. With Kirstie, Hines and Chelsea all competing for that mirror ball trophy, this will be one of the most difficult finals in the show’s history.
