Who survived “DWTS,” and who is going home?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It’s down to the final two on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” … but was the Karate Kid still kicking?

Unfortunately, no. As season 12 headed toward its anticipated finale, perennial favorite Chelsea Kane (pictured) and Mark Ballas landed on top of the contest’s leader board with the highest score, while Hines Ward (with Kim Johnson) and Kirstie Alley (with Maksim Chmerkovskiy) were saved to dance in the finale.

That meant Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff, who earned the lowest grades this week, were sent packing.

“I will never forget how the fans have driven us through every week,” Macchio said after the results were revealed. “It inspired me. I would run here every Monday for us to present what we worked on.”

The final dance takes place next Monday, May 23, with the results being revealed on Tuesday, May 24.
