    The 18-year-old former Dance Moms star absolutely nailed Monday night's salsa routine with partner Jenna Johnson, and then beat Olivia Jade and Val Chmerkovskiy in the dance-off.

    Not only was the salsa dance an impressive feat of gravity-defying physics, but the rumba was....sensual, to say the least.

    They were really working all parts of that dance: face, body, and emotion.

    I know JoJo is 18 now and ~technically~ an adult, but it still feels kinda like watching your younger sister grow up in front of you.

    And she did it all while experiencing a severe pain running from her "hip to her head," that she later documented post-show on TikTok.

    "All of a sudden, halfway through, I got the worst feeling in my neck," she told Entertainment Tonight. "I cracked, popped, snapped something. Couldn't feel anything from my hip to my head."

    Somehow, JoJo managed to dance through the pain and still pull out a win.

    Abby Lee's voice was probably screaming "SECOND IS THE FIRST TO LOSE" in her head the whole time.

    I just know Abby Lee Miller is silently applauding somewhere.
