Romeo is bidding adieu to the "Dancing with the Stars" ballroom ahead of the semis.

The actor and rapper, once known as Lil' Romeo, was dismissed Tuesday from the ABC dance competition, sparing “Karate Kid” Ralph Macchio from elimination after a leg injury blunted his scores.

In Romeo’s farewell, the son of “Dancing” alum Master P credited the show with changing his life.

Before becoming a contestant, he said he was terrified of dancing and didn't even dance at his prom. He said he once turned down movie roles that required dancing, but now he’s “fearless.” He added, " I think I showed kids anything is possible...Fall on your face a few times!"

The remaining contestants — Kirstie Alley, Ralph Macchio, Chelsea Kane and Hines Ward — will battle it out in next week's semifinals.
 
Ah, parting is such sweet sorrow.
