Emmys - Opening sketch featuring Glee cast and... girl from the CW?

I was watching the Emmys opening sketch, featuring host Jimmy Fallon and the Glee cast doing their interpretation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." They had a lot of help, including appearances by Tina Fey, Jon Hamm, Jorge Garcia from Lost, Betty White and many more.

However, while I like to think I'm someone who follows pop culture, a woman leaped onto the screen who my memory banks could provide absolutely no explanation for.

Thanks to the power of the Internet, I discovered that this was, of course... Nina Dobrev? Still no idea. Apparently she's on "The Vampire Diaries" on the CW.

So, did you know who this was, or are you, like me, now feeling super old for not recognizing her?
