JoJo Siwa Just Casually Revolutionised ‘Dancing With The Stars’

All I want in this world is for JoJo Siwa to be happy.

It’s no secret that I am a diehard Jojo Siwa fan. She’s a certified queer icon, which is a huge deal considering she’s one of the world’s biggest children’s entertainers.

She came out as queer in January this year, and immediately began posting about her thriving relationship with the girl of her dreams – that’s big gay energy right there.

JoJo is continuing to make history – this year, she became the first ever competitor on Dancing With The Stars to regularly compete with a partner of the same gender.

On her groundbreaking appearance, JoJo told USA Today that she hoped it would be a “change for the better”.

"I said I actually would love and prefer to dance with a girl," she said. "Why not show the message even stronger that you can love whomever you want to love?"

Sorry, but I’m crying. JoJo’s dancing partner is Jenna Johnson – and the pair have been truly smashing the competition so far.

To truly bring us all the queer joy we deserve, JoJo and Jenna this week performed to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s 2020 pop anthem “Rain On Me”. Their cha-cha routine was a high energy, back-bending and utterly fantastic performance. Check it out for yourself.

I can’t explain the utter joy this brings me. JoJo Siwa performing in a history-making same-gender couple to a Gaga and Ariana song?! As one twitter user pointed out, this moment is the definition of gay rights.

Luckily, the judges shared my enthusiasm. The pair scored 31 out of 40 points for their performance, which was the second-highest score of the night.

JoJo and Jenna are so far killing the competition in Dancing With The Stars. She’s competing against actors, wrestlers, basketball players, a Real Housewife of Atlanta and Jan from The Office.

I can’t exactly comment on whether it’s fair that JoJo is competing on the side of the ‘star’ when she’s literally been a dancer. I’m too gay to care about that.

She uploaded this darling photo of her and Jenna in their “Rain On Me” outfits, writing the typical JoJo caption with just the right amount of exclamation marks:

“Who is ready to vote tonight!!!! Dancing with the Stars week 2!!!!!!!! Text JoJo to 21523 to vote!!!!!!!!!! Love you guys !!!!!” We love to see it.
