Dancing With The Stars 11 October, 2021 - 07:52pm

On Monday, Oct. 11, the ABC competition show aired the first part of its Disney-themed week with "Disney: Heroes Night." Concluding tomorrow, the popular film celebration features the celebrities and their partners dressed as some of the studio's most beloved characters, from Mary Poppins to Snow White to Elsa.

This episode was exciting for a variety of reasons, as it saw the ballroom return for Cheryl Burke and Cody Rigsby, who are both healthy again after previously testing positive for COVID-19. In addition, judge Derek Hough is back as well, after he took last week off following a possible COVID-19 exposure. 

There were no eliminations tonight, meaning all of the pairs will take part in Tuesday's "Villains Night." Heading into the week, JoJo Siwa and Amanda Kloots were tied atop the leaderboard after the first three weeks.

JoJo Siwa Served Prince Charming in Cinderella-Themed 'DWTS' Routine

Yahoo News 12 October, 2021 - 08:25am

It was Disney Heroes night on DWTS, and the out Gen Z superstar and Dance Moms alum gave us the queer, Disney-themed dance routine we've always wanted to see when she and her competition partner Jenna Johnson danced the Viennese waltz to the classic Cinderella anthem "A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes."

Ditching the usual princess garb that is typically expected of women for princess-themed anything, Siwa donned Prince Charming's classic costume to dance with Johnson (who took on the role of Cinderella's to Siwa's prince), and as expected, they slayed the ballroom floor for the fourth week in a row, scoring 35 out of 40 points total and getting the first 9s of the season from the judges' panel!

Siwa and Johnson's Disney-themed routine comes on the heels of some epic performances from previous weeks, the likes of which include a routine to Britney Spears' iconic 1998 smash hit "...Baby One More Time," Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's pandemic bop "Rain On Me" (where they got the second-highest score of the night), and the "Are You Gonna Be My Girl?" performance the week before that, where they topped the entire episode with the highest-scoring performance in the competition!

And this wasn't the only same-sex waltz in the DWTS universe to capture audiences' attention!

On Saturday night's most recent episode of Strictly Come Dancing (the British equivalent of DWTS), all the dance pros gathered together for special opening routine to Taylor Swift's classic tracks "Lover" and "Love Story." Johannes Radebe, who is currently competing with Great British Bake Off's John Whaite in the competition, stole the show when he arrived to the Strictly ballroom and started dancing the waltz with Kai Widdrington.

Radebe (like many of us viewers) got emotional at the end of the super romantic performance, which is totally understandable when you consider just how far we've come when it comes to on-screen inclusion and mainstream LGBTQ+ representation in dance!

JoJo Siwa causes a stir with sweet comments about DWTS dance partner Jenna Johnson

HELLO! 12 October, 2021 - 05:09am

But JoJo's kind words also sparked a debate between her fans as they worried she's no longer with her off-screen girlfriend, Kylie Prew. 

In the sweet post ahead of their Disney week performance on Dancing with the Stars 2021, JoJo wrote an emotional message about Jenna which read: "Tomorrow. Somehow I've smiled the most ever this week, while also setting my crying record. Being on @dancingabc with @jennajohnson has been more than a dream come true. 

"It's unexplainable the joy and happiness that I feel while on set, thank you Jenna for being the best partner In the entire world. This journey would be SO different without you."

JoJo continued: "I'm so thankful for everything that you put into our dances every single week. Somehow they get better and better each week! Also thank you for being my best friend. Thank you for making me laugh, smile, plank, say 'oh', try things I would neverrrr try, and so much more! 

"You're the literal best. Thank you to all of the amazing CREW on DWTS. The amount of people who work on this show is insane, and they all are so so amazing.

"Thank you to all the other cast for being so fun and being my family. And thank you to YOU for watching, supporting, and voting."

Many of JoJo's social media followers commented, telling them they are their favorite couple on the show, but others were concerned that this might mean the former Dance Moms star had split from girlfriend, Kylie. 

"I wonder how Kylie feels about JoJo's posts about Jenna?" wrote one fan about the couple - who were best friends before things turned romantic. Another pointed out: "There was no mention of their nine month anniversary the other day. They usually celebrate every month and post about it."

Others said JoJo had mentioned something difficult happening in her personal life on Instagram just days before, while more insisted Kylie was still 'liking' JoJo's posts, so hoped things were ok between them. 

Regardless of what is happening in her personal life, it appears she's found great support in her dance partner - who is happily married to fellow, pro-dancer, Val Chmerkovskiy.
