About JoJo Siwa
JoJo Siwa in Concert
Joelle Joanie (better known as JoJo) Siwa was practically born on the stage — with a bow perfectly placed in her hair. The bubbly singer, dancer, actress, and YouTube vlogger has already stacked up an impressive array of credits, well before celebrating her sweet 16.
Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Siwa took to singing and dancing with help from her mother Jessalynn, a dance teacher and studio owner. JoJo made her first national TV appearance on the second season of Lifetime's dance reality competition show ‘Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition.'
At the age of 10, she was the youngest contestant on the show and ended up a top 5 finalist. This led to a stint on Abby Lee Miller's ALDC dance competition team and a role on the reality show ‘Dance Moms' in 2015 and 2016.
By the time Siwa turned 13, she had already moved on to the world of pop music with the release of her debut single, "Boomerang," an anthem against cyberbullies. Soon enough, her massive online following — including millions of YouTube subscribers — got the attention of Nickelodeon, who signed Siwa to a full deal encompassing music releases and live events.
This led to Siwa's swift transition from internet sensation to full-blown pop star, starting first with a win at the 2017 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards for Favorite Viral Music Artist, then with the 2018 release of her debut EP ‘D.R.E.A.M.' Produced by Nickelodeon, the four-song EP oozes with youthful optimism and boundless enthusiasm, especially the title track, which is the highlight on Siwa's first major tour in May 2019.
When she's not on the road, she entertains her fans — aka Siwanatorz — with daily life updates on YouTube and social media, and with the release of new products, including books, dolls, and her signature big hair bows. It doesn't look like she'll be slowing down anytime soon — be prepared to see plenty more of JoJo as she continues to blossom on the stage and screen.
