JoJo Siwa's New DWTS Routine Paid Homage to Queer Descendants Fans

Disney Week continues on ABC's popular reality competition Dancing With the Stars, and last night's episode paid homage to many of the Disney villains who have captured our hearts over the years. 

After slaying the role of Prince Charming during a Viennese waltz routine earlier this week on Heroes Night, out, Gen Z dance superstar JoJo Siwa returned to the dancefloor with partner Jenna Johnson for another fierce and fast-paced performance (this time the paso doble) that we know LGBTQ+ Disney fans are going to be gushing over for a while!

Donning purple and blue wigs, the history-making DWTS duo paid homage to Mal and Evie, two characters from the Disney Channel's popular original film franchise Descendants

Mal (played by bisexual actress Dove Cameron) and Evie (Sofia Carson) are two of the film series' fan-favorite characters, and because of their friendship and on-screen chemistry, the two often get shipped as a couple by the fandom frequently. 

"Mal is pan," Dove even wrote in a tweet late last year, confirming long-held fan theories about her Descendants character who is the daughter of Maleficent and Hades.

Besides copslaying Mal and Evie, Siwa and Johnson also danced to "Ways to Be Wicked," an original track from the second Descendants film that was performed by Cameron and Carson, alongside their costars Booboo Stewart and the late Cameron Boyce. 

If there's one thing Siwa and Johnson understand, it's the assignment! Relive their epic paso doble in the video below.
