    This is a first for Dancing with the Stars in the US, but the British and Australian versions of the show have featured same-sex pairings.

    You might know her from her YouTube channel with 12.3 million subscribers, but she's no stranger to dance competitions or reality TV.

    She was a cast member on Dance Momsย and recently competed on The Masked Singer. Plus, there's also, y'know, her entire music career.

    JoJo also came out earlier this year, making her the perfect person to mark this moment in DWTS history.
