JoJo Siwa makes history dancing with same-sex partner on 'DWTS,' more news ICYMI

Wonderwall Logo By Mark Gray of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 10: "Dancing With the Stars" history was made on Sept. 20 when JoJo Siwa danced with same-sex partner Jenna Johnson. "I have never felt those kind of nerves that I did [Monday] night … I didn't know what to expect," Jenna told Page Six afterward. "I was so nervous for [JoJo], and for people's responses, because this is very different and this is a very big step forward." Once Jenna and JoJo's names were officially announced -- the celebrity-pro pairing were kept secret until the premiere -- she calmed down. "I just felt at peace, and that was very reassuring to me. That like, 'This is what I'm supposed to be doing right now, and this was meant to be,'" she recalled. "If JoJo has this courage to do this very scary thing, then I can as well. So it was all sorts of emotions, but it was very, very thrilling."
