And then there were six …

“Dancing With the Stars” sent two hopefuls home on Monday as the race for the Mirror Ball trophy heated up.

While Ginger Zee earned the first perfect score of Season 22 with a moving performance to Whitney Houston‘s “I Have Nothing,” Kim Fields and Von Miller were the unlucky contestants eliminated.

The latest installment of the ABC competition show honored some of the biggest names in music for “Icons Night,” including U2, Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones and Aretha Franklin.

After saying during rehearsals that she felt like her “body was breaking down,” Jodie Sweetin channeled Stevie Wonder in a Quickstep that didn’t blow the judges away but didn’t drive them crazy either.

“There was no holding back,” Len Goodman praised, while Bruno Tonioli compared her to a canary taking flight.

The Jackson 5’s “ABC” didn’t save Fields, however, despite her being friends with Janet and Jermaine Jackson from her “The Facts of Life” days. Carrie Ann Inaba said she killed it, and Goodman told Fields it was her best round, but it ended up being too little, too late.

After appearing like he was getting too cocky last week, Nyle DiMarco was down in the dumps during rehearsals as partner Peta Murgatroyd tried to cheer him up. Fortunately it was a “Beautiful Day” thanks to their elegant dance to U2.

“I felt like there was a magnet underneath you pulling you through the whole dance,” Inaba said, while Goodman did point out that his “bum was sticking out.”

Super Bowl champion Miller was in jeopardy last week, and sadly taking on the King of Rock and Roll wasn’t enough to elevate him back up the board. “It was different … but very effective,” Tonioli said, while Inaba called the Presley performance “a bit rough around the edges.”

“Dancing With the Stars” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
