The original "Karate Kid" has been chopped from "Dancing with the Stars."

Ralph Macchio, 49, was voted off ABC's hit dance show Tuesday, leaving football star Hines Ward and actresses Kirstie Alley and Chelsea Kane to compete for the mirrorball trophy next week in the finals.

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

"I will never forget how the fans have driven us every week," Macchio said after learning he'd been booted, adding that he was proud to perform with pro-partner Karina Smirnoff.

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.
