Actor Ralph Macchio the Eighth Celebrity Voted Off "Dancing with the Stars 12"

On tonight's "Dancing with the Stars" results show actor Ralph Macchio became the eighth celebrity voted off the show. Yesterday the four couples performed three dances each - a ballroom dance, a latin dance and a winner takes all cha cha. After the first two dances, Hines Ward was at the top of the judge's leaderboard with a perfect 60 out of 60. Ralph Macchio landed at the bottom with a 48. However, Chelsea Kane was awarded 15 bonus points for winning the cha cha, upping her score to a 73. Tonight, when the viewer votes were added, they agreed with the judges and booted Ralph from the competition. Next week, the final three perform their last three dances - one of which is the long awaited freestyle routine!
