JoJo

Joelle Joanie "JoJo" Siwa (born on May 19, 2003) is an entertainer who lives with her mother Jessalynn and her father Tom, in Los Angeles. Jessalynn was a dancer all of her life and couldn't wait to enroll JoJo in dance classes. Jess owns her own studio. JoJo has a grandmother named Joan, a brother named Jayden, and another deceased grandmother named Kathy.

JoJo starred on season 2 of Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition, a reality competition series on Lifetime that pits talented dancers against each other to fight to the finish, with the winner receiving a Joffrey Ballet scholarship. JoJo did not win, instead coming fifth, but was a good competitor. Due to this prior relationship with Abby Lee Miller, JoJo was brought onto the Abby Lee Dance Company's junior elite competition team as a guest during season 5 of Dance Moms and finally secured a permanent spot on the team in season 6. On the show, JoJo's biggest competitor was Mackenzie Ziegler, as they are close in age and often competed head to head in the solo category. The Siwa family left the show during season 6.5 to pursue other jobs, mostly for Nickelodeon. JoJo did a special on Nickelodeon called Jojo Siwa: My World and was Nick Cannon co-host on the second edition of Lip Sync Battle Shorties which has since became a regular series with her & Nick as hosts. JoJo has her movie on Nickelodeon called Blurt! with Jace Norman and she has a book called JoJo's Guide To The Sweet Life and she had release other books and she has a YouTube channel called It's JoJo Siwa which has 10 million subscribers and her vlog channel which has 2 million subscribers.

Jojo even made an appearance on the 92nd edition of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Jojo has even spawned a series of merchandise under the Nickelodeon brand and in her name. Such as her own board games (Jojo Siwa's Bust a Bow Dance Game & Jojo Siwa Dance Dice Game) and calendars.

Jojo also made an appearance on Dance Moms in Season 8.

On April 24, 2015, JoJo released her first single, I Can Make You Dance, on iTunes. On May 6, 2016, her second single, Boomerang, was released. On May 17, 2017, she also released two singles, Kid In a Candy Store and Hold the Drama.

In 2022, JoJo was one of the judges for that current season of So You Think You Can Dance.

In 2024, JoJo released her adult single Karma that lead to a lot of backlashes from fans and even though fans were rewatching JoJo's old music videos after the single was released.
