    13 Jojo Siwa Moments On "Dance Moms" That Proved She'd One Day Be An Icon

    "Jojo with the bow-bow" and the grade A confidence.

    The world currently knows Jojo Siwa as the rainbow enthusiastic, side pony-tail wearing, unapologetically big personality that she is.

    But before Jojo became an icon, she was a kid on Dance Moms, delivering one-liners and serving looks that would sometimes shake Abby Lee (and the moms) to their core.

    Here are 13 times Jojo's quick wit and strong personality foreshadowed her becoming the icon she is today:

    1. When she called herself a "Hollywood star."

    Lifetime / Via

    She manifested it and made it so.

    2. When she wore this for her introduction to Dance Moms...

    Lifetime / Via

    I mean... "big personality" is an understatement.

    3. ...and then solidified herself as a confident queen.

    We love to see it.

    4. When Jessalyn Siwa — Jojo's mom — told another mom that Jojo placed two points higher than her daughter in a competition, and Jojo had this response:

    Lifetime / Via

    Poor Sarah was the one being slandered.

    5. That time Jojo absolutely demolished the twerking part of the performance of "Boss Ladies."

    Lowkey inappropriate dance for preteens but so it goes with Abby Lee.

    6. When she praised Nia and called out the other girls in the same sentence.

    Lifetime / Via

    We all knew Nia was an angel.

    7. That time she dragged Kendall for not wanting to do a duet with her.


    (Although she did say in 2019 that she didn't know this clip would air.)

    8. Her next-level idolization of Miley Cyrus.

    It's cute especially because she later got to meet Miley.

    9. When Abby told Jojo to stop crying (classic) and she stated the obvious.

    10. And then followed it up with this roast after Abby told her to leave.

    Lifetime / Via

    Jojo never fails to call them like she sees them.

    11. How she never let the haters get to her.

    Lifetime / Via

    Stay true to yourself queen.

    12. When she literally farted on national television.

    Lifetime / Via

    It didn't even faze her.

    13. And finally, for continuously believing in herself despite all the odds.
