Who Is Most Likely to Win ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 30: Predictions of ‘DWTS’ Winners and Losers

inTouch Weekly 22 September, 2021 - 10:30am

During the premiere on Monday, Siwa, 18, and Johnson, 27, performed the foxtrot and received a 29 out of 40 for their first score.

In a video package before their first dance, the Dance Moms alum was seen having a joyous reaction when she opened the studio door and saw Johnson was her partner. "This is a whole new ball game for me. I've never done anything ballroom before," Siwa told the cameras. "It's a learning experience that I'm more than ready for."

Though Johnson had a small slip during their performance, she and Siwa continued on and even earned the highest score of the night.

In August, Siwa was the first of two contestants to be announced along with Olympic gymnast Suni Lee, and made history as the first female celebrity paired with a female pro dancer.

Speaking about the history-making pairing, Siwa said before her dance: "For the first time in Dancing with the Stars history, I am dancing with another female, and I'm really, really proud. I came out in early 2021 and what I love to do is make truly being who you are easier for kids."

"I have a chance right now to make history and to break down a barrier and there's nothing that I would rather do than that," she shared.

Siwa also addressed whether she thinks her background in dance gives her a leg up on the upcoming season of the competition show. "I don't," she said. "I explain it as a football player trying to play basketball. I also think, too, I'm going to be judged a lot harder."

JoJo Siwa Earns HIGHEST Score On HISTORIC 'DWTS' Debut

Clevver News 22 September, 2021 - 10:30am

Watch JoJo Siwa make history — and narrowly avoid a quickstep disaster — with her 'Dancing With the Stars' partner, Jenna Johnson

Insider 21 September, 2021 - 12:00am

For their first performance of the new season, the pair danced a quickstep to Jet's hit song "Are You Gonna Be My Girl." They received the highest score of the night from the judges — a 29 out of 40. But the groundbreaking performance could have been a disaster if not for Siwa's fast reflexes and prior dance training.

Johnson slipped as the pair were speeding down the dance floor toward the end of the number. Siwa so quickly and easily lifted Johnson up that if you blinked, you'd miss the moment. 

"JoJo legit was the Incredible Hulk and didn't let me fall, didn't fall herself, and hoisted me up," Johnson said on her Instagram story after the disaster was avoided. "Oh my gosh, JoJo, I'm so proud of you, and thank you for not letting me fall completely on national television. You're the best."

The dancer was laughing while receiving medical attention. 

Before the "DWTS" premiere, Siwa spoke with E!'s "Daily Pop" about the moment she realized ABC was giving her the chance to break barriers. She said that when she initially read the email offering her a spot on this season's cast, she accepted "right away" before realizing the network had offered her the option to dance with a female partner. She said it was her choice and the network wanted her to be "comfortable and have the best experience ever." 

"It needs to be done," Siwa said about why she chose to dance with a woman. "And I think that it's so untraditional that it's amazing." 

Siwa and Johnson both commemorated their groundbreaking night with Instagram posts.

"The moment I met you, I knew that you were going to change my life," Johnson wrote. "You are full of love, laughter, positivity, and GLITTER!!!"

"Making history and Top score of the night was literally a dream come true for me," Siwa wrote in her post. "Chase every dream you have and believe in yourself," she told her fans, thanking them for their support.

"Dancing With the Stars" airs weekly on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
