Honey Boo Boo Is Now 12 And Competing On "Dancing With The Stars: Juniors"

An Alana Thompson update.

You remember Alana Thompson aka Honey Boo Boo! She rose to fame on Toddlers & Tiaras as a one-of-a-kind pageant kid who loved her "go-go juice."

The juice was said to be a mixture of Red Bull and Mountain Dew.

A dollar made her holler.

This was just one of her incredibly quotable lines from her reign on reality TV.

And of course we loved how her mother — Mama June — was there at every pageant for her, dancing along in the audience.

2012 was indeed simpler times.

But all of that was over SIX years ago! Now, at age 12, Alanna has moved on to another kind of competition — Dancing With The Stars: Junior.

It's time to see if she can dance like her pageant days... with or without her special juice.

Well I'm happy to tell you, when the series premiered last night, Alanna danced her ass off and did a damn good job!!!

She didn't get voted off, either! More HBB for weeks to come!

Watch her salsa to Gloria Estefan's "Conga" below:
