Evanna’s dancing in the final!

Evanna Lynch, who played the role of Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films, has reached tonight’s final of “Dancing with the Stars,” which will be broadcast on ABC at 8 p.m. eastern. The County Louth-born Lynch and her professional partner, Keo Motsepe, will dance twice in the finale. Tonight every competing couple will perform one dance that they have used earlier in the competition along with performing one brand new dance. Evanna and Keo will dance the tango that they performed on Halloween night (when Evanna realized her life long dream of "becoming a cat"!) to music from Disturbia and a new freestyle dance to the music ‘It’s oh so Quiet’ by Björk.
