We had a hunch that Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch would be opening up the Emmy Awards with huge musical performance, and while Glee castmates Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Amber Riley were a natural addition, we were kind of surprised to see Nina Dobrev in the mix.

Don't get us wrong -- we love Nina, but aside from watching her slow dance with Stefan, we haven't seen many of her moves, let alone hear her sing. Here's how it went down: the show opened with Jimmy Fallon arriving at the awards and running into the Glee cast. Though nominated for multiple Emmys, the crew was standing outside the theater because they didn't have enough money to cover the cost of the $300-tickets. Jimmy then spots a sign for a regional glee club competition with a top prize of $1205.

The group then sets out to recruit more dancers for their team. They run into several different stars, making us laugh all along the way, but once they kick off their rendition of Bruce Springsteen's 'Born to Run,' that's when Nina jumps out of a dressing room and joins the ensemble on the go.
Nina ends up rocking out the choreography like a Glee pro, and contributing vocals for one line of the song, which sounded pretty good. We were impressed by how seamlessly she blended into the group, giving Santana a total run for her money. Now we know who Ryan Murphy can call if Naya Rivera ever calls in sick. What did you think of Nina's performance?
