JoJo Siwa is making history
A few days back, it was reported that JoJo Siwa will be making history by competing in ‘Dancing With the Stars‘ with a female partner. “I am so excited to be a part of ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ Season 30, and to be dancing with a girl,” Siwa, said in the promo clip of the show at that time. However, she has not met or know who will be her partner in this competition yet, as it was announced that she will be meeting her partner on the show’s season premiere.
On Monday, the 18-year-old dancer was spending her day co-hosting Entertainment Tonight where she shared how she feels about her soon to begin dance competition, and that she will be the first contestant to have a partner with the same s**. “When I read the email it was like, ‘Would JoJo prefer to dance with a girl or with a boy?’ And I was like, ‘Wait, that’s an option? Let’s absolutely do it!'” JoJo Siwa shared. “It was like, ‘Whoa, I’m changing the future [moment], because I have such a kid demographic. It’s making it acceptable, and I love that and I’m so proud of that.”
The young entertainer is also very excited to meet her partner and start the rehearsals soon.
“I actually start rehearsals tomorrow!” she excitedly told ET and revealed that her “three favorites” pros are Jenna Johnson, Britt Stewart, and Lindsay Arnold. “I meet [my partner] tomorrow.” However, JoJo Siwa was also a little nervous related to her background in dance. “I’m not gonna hide that I’m a dancer. I was a dancer my whole life,” she said.
“Am I very out of practice? Absolutely. I perform all the time, but it’s different, you know? I don’t have to strengthen my legs, and the ballroom is different. I’ve never taken ballroom,” JoJo added. “It’s gonna help me in a way, but it also is a disadvantage,” she continued. “Because I guarantee you the judges are one hundred million percent gonna judge me harder than they do everybody else.”
Well, that is not the only new thing that’s coming up for this young and bright star. JoJo Siwa will soon be seen in “The J Team,” in which she is playing a fictionalized character based on her own famous persona.
JoJo is also serving as the executive producer for this movie and so she described her experience as ‘magical.’ “It’s my first project that’s being released as an adult, like, my first big project,” she shares. “It was my last project being filmed as a kid, but my first as an adult. Being the lead in a movie was magical, and then being the executive producer was magical,” she says. “… It gave me a great, great, great experience on the film, being on that side of it,” she added.
