JoJo Siwa is making waves on Dancing With The Stars after it was revealed that she would be partnered with a same-sex dancer.

Fans were in awe of Siwa after she became the first-ever contestant in the show’s sixteen-year history to be partnered with a professional of the same sex.

The eighteen-year-old was partnered with Jenna Johnson, who has been a pro-dancer on the show for 8 seasons. And it was clearly a perfect match, as the pair gave it their all on the dancefloor on Monday night, performing along to the song Are You Gonna Be My Girl.

Despite it being the season premiere, that didn’t stop Siwa from pulling out all the stops and showing the judges what she’s made of.

The pair ended up earning a place at the top of the scoreboard, with a whopping twenty-nine points out of forty!

Not long after the show, Siwa took to Instagram to share her thoughts on their first performance…

“You. Betta. WINK!!! That was THE BEST ever!!!! I can’t even believe that week 1 is over!!! @jennajohnson I couldn’t ask for a better partner! Thank you for taking me through this process while making it the most fun ever.”

​Later on, in her Instagram post, Siwa went on to say…

“Making history and Top score of the night was literally a dream come true for me. Chase every dream you have and believe in yourself. Know that I love you all and I am smiling so big right now because of you, we did this !!!”

And Johnson was clearly proud of Siwa’s performance on the night, as she shared her own Instagram post praising the star…

“History made. JoJo Siwa. There aren’t enough words to express my absolute admiration for you. The moment I met you, I knew that you were going to change my life. You are full of love, laughter, positivity, and GLITTER!!! Thank you for an epic night… (and saving me from falling flat on my face) FIRST EVER SAME-SEX COUPLE!!!! And I’m proud to say it. Night one down and (hopefully) many more to go!”
We can’t wait to see what else they have in store!
