Will Evanna and Keo Tango Their Way to the Top of the Leaderboard?

With last week’s surprise on Dancing with the Stars, where neither couple in jeopardy was eliminated from Week 5 of the competition for the Mirrorball trophy, I’ve got every body part crossed in hopes that Evanna Lynch and her partner, Keo Motsepe, will make it through Week 6. First, let’s take a look back at Disney Week via social media coverage!

Evanna and Keo danced a jazz routine dressed as Rapunzel and Flynn from Disney’s Tangled. Their costumes and routine were seriously cute and magical.

Evanna and Keo gave some great interviews after the show had ended and it had been revealed that every couple would move into this week’s performances.



They also gave us hints as to what they had in store for Halloween Week, which unsurprisingly, involved cats.



The pair appeared this week on Ellen to talk about the competition with Ellen’s producers and they also play a Harry Potter-themed version of Heads Up! Watch as Evanna answers all the questions and doesn’t even give Keo a shot at guessing!




You can also play a Fantastic Beasts version of Heads Up! on the app until November 9, so go play it and let us know what you think!

If you’ve missed out on any performances or fun videos from Evanna or Keo’s Instagram, catch up by watching every routine and some charming clips on our YouTube playlist! Here’s just one of the little gems I love receiving when they post on Instagram.



It’s Halloween Week, which means not only did we get a performance from Team Kevanna, but we were also blessed with the Halloween team routine. Take a look at a rehearsal photo from Evanna’s Instagram.

This week, all of the stars joined the professional dancers in the opening number, dancing to “Purple People Eater.” Here is the opening team number!



Evanna and Keo danced a tango to Rhianna’s “Disturbia” after a video package that revealed just how disappointed Evanna was in her scores last week and how determined she was to dance to please herself instead of pleasing the judges. Watch it here!



Scores were the highest the pair has seen yet, with 29 of 30 points! Watching this performance, I am glad that Evanna received a lower score than she wanted because it appears that it gave her that drive to dance for herself rather than for the scores. Even better, Evanna and Keo made it through this week, which means she has the opportunity to dance in the semifinals and is one step closer to claiming the Mirrorball trophy for Team Kevanna! Next week, we should expect to see not only Evanna and Keo’s performance but also a team dance, since they skipped that for this episode.

The combination of viewer online and telephone votes added to the scores from the judging panel are what keeps our girl fighting for that Mirrorball trophy! Voting is open until 4 a.m. Eastern, and you can vote online AND by calling in to Evanna and Keo’s dedicated number at 800-868-3405. There should be nine votes available to you per method, so use them wisely and please vote for Team Kevanna tonight!

All of my votes are going to Team Kevanna and I hope all of yours will as well. Your votes can help Evanna and Keo in Week 7, which will be Country Night!
