Ralph Macchio has done his last dance, leaving football star Hines Ward and actresses Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane to compete for the "Dancing With the Stars" title.

The 49-year-old actor was eliminated Tuesday from the hit ABC show.

Macchio came into the episode in last place. He and professional partner Karina Smirnoff earned 48 points for their two semifinal dances.

Judges' scores are combined with viewer votes to determine who is eliminated from the competition each week.

Stevie Nicks performed two songs: Her new single, "Secret Love," and the Fleetwood Mac classic "Landslide."

The three finalists will each perform two dances on Monday's episode. A new "Dancing" champ will be crowned on May 24.
