‘Harry Potter’ Alum Nails ‘Do You Believe in Magic’ Number on ‘DWTS’ (Natch.)
Last night, the wizarding and reality competition show worlds collided. No, there’s not a new witch competition show (we wish), but a Harry Potter alum did make her Dancing with the Stars debut with a cleverly chosen song.
Evanna Lynch, who starred as Luna Lovegood in the film series, performed with pro Keo Motsepe to the song “Do You Believe in Magic” on the show’s season 27 premiere. (Next time, Luna, let’s wingardium leviosa the music selection bar.)
But her song selection and Hogwarts diploma weren’t the only things that enchanted judges. It turns out that once upon a time, Lynch applied to and was rejected from dance school, so she has that whole “I’m kind of a natural” thing going for her. With a score of 18 out of 34, she definitely showed those school admissions officers.
Leave it to an HP alum to cast a spell on the DWTS judges.
