It's been a Dancing with the Stars season to remember.

The injuries. The drama. The personal stories that moved us. The moves on the floor that thrilled us. A cast of stars so engaging and evenly matched that the field was as competitive as it was entertaining from the start.

It won't guarantee their safety in a reality show voted on by millions of fans, but Ralph Macchio, Hines Ward and Chelsea Kane proved they were a cut above the rest of the competition last night on Dancing With the Stars.

The Karate Kid and Karina Smirnoff quickstepped to the top spot after their fall (literal and otherwise) last week, joining Hines and Kym Johnson with 66 each.
