It was “Britney Night” Monday (Oct. 4) on Dancing With the Stars, but anyone who watched might have considered it “JoJo Night.”
JoJo Siwa stepped out with her dance partner Jenna Johnson for an Argentine Tango to Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time,” and it was pure fireworks.
The 18-year-old celebrity did the lifting and the pair absolutely nailed their performance, earning 24 out of 40, one of the highest scores of the evening (The fourth judge Derek Hough reportedly sat this one out after a COVID-19 scare).
Judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli enjoyed what they saw, with Inaba going as far as describing the dance as “liquid sunshine,” and noting that Siwa always “leads with clarity and intention”.
Siwa is gunning for the Mirrorball Trophy. Based on her routines over the course of this series, she’s got a fine chance.
