Karate Kid Ralph Macchio lived to fight another day on Dancing With The Stars last night as actor Romeo was kicked off the reality show.

Romeo and partner Chelsie Hightower became the latest couple to be sent packing on Tuesday's results programme.

The 22-year-old star was gracious in defeat, saying after the result was announced: 'We went out with a bang, you know.'

Referring to his tango and salsa routines from Monday's show, he added: 'That's the most fun I had in my life yesterday.'

He continued: 'This show has changed my life forever.

 

'I was terrified of dancing. I didn't dance at my own prom, I turned down a lot of movies because I was terrified of dancing...I think I showed kids, anything is possible if you try.'

Macchio, who limped through much of Tuesday's show because of a knee injury that curtailed his rehearsal time, gets to compete in the semi-finals with partner Karina Smirnoff.

He received a standing ovation on Monday, but was scored the lowest out of all the contestants by the judges.

Macchio, 49, will be joined in the semi-finals by NFL star Hines Ward and partner Kym Johnson as well as actress Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Rounding out the final four of the hit dancing competition are the team of Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas.

The results show also saw performances from British star Adele, whose album 21 is currently riding high in the American charts after bagging the top spot.

The 23-year-old performed her track Rolling In The Deep.

But she was forced to hand over singing duties of the Carole King hit Natural Woman to Australian singer Delta Goodrem, because she was having difficulty reaching the high notes.

She explained to host Tom Bergeron: 'I was going to be covering Natural Woman but my voice is going a bit, its knackered and I need to save it.

'Delta Goodrem has stepped in with an hours notice, so thanks very much. I am gutted,' she added, amusing Bergeron with her very British vocabulary.

Delta then sang the legendary song with just an hour of rehearsal, after earlier singing a duet of the song I'm Not Ready with former contestant Michael Bolton.
