JoJo Siwa was born into a dance family. Her mother, Jessalynn, owns a dance studio and danced her whole life. JoJo's favorite style of dance to watch and perform is hip hop but she also likes to perform jazz, and musical theatre. Her specialties are jazz, contemporary, and lyrical and she has been dancing for seven years. If she doesn't become a professional dancer, she would love to become a dance teacher.
On Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition
JoJo was in the top five for the second season of AUDC. JoJo quickly rubbed some of the moms the wrong way when her mother told her to force her way to the front and center.
JoJo was paired with Travis for their Gene Kelly duet and while she did steal the show, the judges told her less is more.
In the next week, JoJo was paired with both Travis and Tyler. During rehearsal, Abby asked Sheryl (Travis and Tyler's mother) how to tell them apart but JoJo interrupted and answered Abby's question. Abby told JoJo it was rude and later told her mom to start saying 'No' to JoJo.
JoJo made it past the next week and was paired with Chloe and Gianna for her trio called Hades and the Lost Souls by Ally and Tiffany. JoJo was the only member of her trio not to be in the bottom and she continued on to the next week.
JoJo was teamed with Ally for their Magic Act duet. JoJo had some technical mistakes including a leap that didn't go off the ground. She landed in the bottom three for the first time but was spared.
JoJo was in the bottom three again with Tyler and Travis but she was spared after her Newsies trio with Trinity and Tyler.
JoJo got her first solo in the Fairy Tales week. Her Rapunzel solo was well received by the judges and deemed the best performance of the week.
JoJo's American Spirit duet with Trinity didn't go over very well. JoJo struggled using the ribbons and did great with them in the beginning, however they got tangled at the very end. It came down to JoJo and Travis but ultimately JoJo was spared.
JoJo was next paired with Kalani for a vampire themed duet. Technique was a struggle for JoJo but instead her duet partner ended in the bottom 2 with Trinity, leaving her safe.
In Divas in the House she chose to do a hip-hop duet over a solo. However, Trinity chooses the same duet and outshined her and outdanced her. Kalani, her best friend on the show, was in the bottom two with her but was chosen to stay. JoJo was eliminated from the competition.
JoJo continues to compete and perform outside of the show. She is very active on social media and hosts meet and greet events. JoJo recently recorded her own single "I Like Big Bows" and filmed a music video in Massachusettes. It's unknown when her single will be released.
