Playing 'Dancing With the Stars' Sends Two Competitors Home in First Double Elimination of the Season

*Caution: Spoilers ahead!*

The Dancing With the Stars race got even tighter on Tuesday after season 23's first double elimination that saw two stars get the axe in one night.

First on the chopping block was GRAMMY winner Babyface and his partner, Allison Holker, who were sent home a night after performing a tango set to The Beatles’ "Come Together," which earned them one of their lowest scores of the season.

"I look at it this way: I got a chance to come out and dance for my mom, and my mom is proud today that I even came here," the 57-year-old R&B icon told hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews after getting eliminated. "It's been an amazing experience."

At the end of the night, the final elimination came down to IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe, singer Jana Kramer and rapper/home improvement expert Vanilla Ice.

In what had to be one of DWTS’ least-suspenseful eliminations ever, the 48-year-old "Ice Ice Baby" singer and his partner, Witney Carson, were sent packing.

Unlike Babyface, Ice was voted off the show one night after he and Carson delivered a rousing Viennese Waltz that got them their best scores yet. But it wasn't enough to save him after weeks of less-than-stellar routines.

"This was a magic experience. I love it," Ice shared with Andrews at the close of the show. "Dancing makes you happy and this is just a happy experience. I'm honored to be here."

The double elimination wasn't the only major highlight of the night -- DWTS pros Sasha Farber and Emma Slater got engaged in the middle of the show, when Farber popped the question in front of the whole audience! Check out the video below to hear more.
