Dancing With The Stars Elimination 5/17: Final Show To Feature Hines Ward

Ralph Macchio was eliminated from Dancing With The Stars after producing the final four's weakest score. The former Karate Kid and early frontrunner just wasn't able to keep up down the stretch, leaving former Georgia Bulldogs star Hines Ward and Kym Johnson, Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas, and Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy as the last contenders going into next week's final show.

So yeah, Hines Ward has a good chance of winning this thing.

On Monday's performance show, Ward and Johnson delivered two perfectly scored dances, which hasn't happened this season and probably almost never happens. I'll check the stats on that as soon as you find me a DWTS stats site. Jerry Rice, Jason Taylor and Warren Sapp were the other NFL players to make the final three, but only Emmitt Smith has gone on to win the Mirror Ball Trophy. It's called the Mirror Ball Trophy!
