Kristin Cavallari has become the third celebrity to leave season 13 of Dancing with the Stars.

The actress fell into the bottom two along with Hope Solo and her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy following the combination of the judges' scores and viewer votes.

"This is truly crazy. My expectations were that these two couples would be fighting for the final and maybe one of them going home with the mirror ball," said judge Len Goodman following the announcement of the contestants in danger. "This is week three and one of these [couples] is going home. It's madness, it's just madness."

Cavallari scored 24 out of a possible 30 points on Monday's show for her samba with partner Mark Ballas to Beyoncé's 'Crazy In Love', which she chose to honour her most memorable year of 2005.

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was impressed with the routine, dubbing it "pretty darn good" considering the difficult choreography, while Len Goodman enjoyed the "fabulous" performance despite some of its racier moves.

"I'm a little surprised, to be honest, but I've had such a great time and it's been an awesome experience so it is what it is," Cavallari said following her exit.

Ballas added: "I just want to say that I'm really proud of Kristin. She had great potential and I thought she killed it last night. I was honoured to be her partner and I'm really proud of her and I love her."

Basketball player Ron Artest was the first celebrity to leave the competition along with professional partner Peta Murgatroyd, follow by Elisabetta Canalis and partner Val Chmerkovskiy's exit last week.

Tonight's results show featured special guest Mary J Blige who performed her hit 'Real Love' and new track '25/8' as well as Grammy Award winner Estelle, who covered the classic Chubby Checker song 'The Twist' with an appearance by the original artist himself.

The performance saw the Macy's Stars of Dance partake in the iconic dance along with judges Goodman, Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

Macy's Stars of Dance also paid tribute to Gone with the Wind in a routine choreographed by Jonathan Roberts, which also featured Murgatroyd and Val Chmerkovskiy.

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays and Tuesdays on ABC.
