USMagazine, Tuesday, May 15, 2012, 7:05pm (PDT)

One contestant was eliminated on Dancing With the Stars Tuesday before making it to the finals next week.

Katherine Jenkins suffered a back injury at the end of her routine Monday and the misstep put her in last place on the leaderboard. But fans voted and hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet announced Jenkins and her partner Mark Ballas will be going to the finals.

Is she well enough to dance in the finals? Jenkins, 31, said, "It's something that I will just pile through" and she's excited to compete.

Dancing pros Tristan MacManus and Chelsie Hightower then took over the stage for a special performance to Beyonce's "Till the End of Time." Alanis Morissette was up next performing her new single "Guardian," from her upcoming album Havoc and Bright Lights, for the first time.

The next couple up to face their results on DWTS were Monday's leaders Maria Menounos and Derek Hough. Unfortunately, their high scores didn't guarantee them a spot in the finals after fan votes and they were placed in jeopardy.

Rock of Ages stars Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta and Mary J. Blige took the stage to perform a medley of hits from the movie, which opens in theaters June 15. Carrie Underwood then performed "Good Girl," the first single from her new album, Blown Away.

Bergeron also confirmed that Season 15 of Dancing With the Stars will feature an all star cast!

Partners William Levy and Cheryl Burke and Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd then faced their results. Levy earned a spot in the finals and Driver was placed in jeopardy with Menounos.

Driver and Menounos took the stage with their partners for the final results. Sadly, it was Menounos who was eliminated. 

"I learned so many things. I learned how strong I was," Menounos, 33, said of her time on the show.

Hough added, "I loved loved loved dancing with this woman. She's not just a champion of dancing, she's a champion of life."

Following elimination, there are three contestants left in the competition, including Jenkins, Levy and Driver.
