Sometimes being a princess is overrated, and it's better to be the prince! At least that's what JoJo Siwa was proving when she served up some Prince Charming excellence on last night's episode of Dancing With the Stars!
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!
