Joelle Joanie “JoJo” Siwa
JoJo Siwa rose to fame as a contestant on Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition in 2013 when she was 9 years old. After finishing in fifth place, Siwa joined host Abby Lee Miller’s Dance Moms team for several seasons. The “Kid in a Candy Store” singer left the Lifetime series during season 6 to pursue her YouTube and music career. The Nickelodeon alum has since released three albums and eight singles. She competed on The Masked Singer before making her feature-film debut in The J-Team in September 2021. Her Dancing With the Stars season 30 run made history as she was the first star to be paired with a professional dancer of the same sex. Siwa and pro Jenna Johnson came in second place.
The Nebraska native, who was previously linked to TikTok star Mark Bontempo, publicly came out as a member of the LGBTQ+ community in January 2021. She dated Kylie Prew for nearly one year until their split that October. Siwa later confirmed in March 2022 that she had a new partner.
