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.
