Teenage pop sensation JoJo Siwa and dancer Jenna Johnson got perfect scores for both of their performances in the Season 30 finale of Dancing with the stars, and Siwa reflected on how dancing with Johnson has made her feel like a woman.

“Even though I’m only 18, I feel like I’ve become an adult, a woman,” Siwa said in the introduction to their performance. She and Johnson are the first gay couple on the popular ABC reality show which is in its 30th season. “On her own, Jenna changed my life. “

Siwa was explaining how her friendship with Johnson, who is straight, had helped her grow.

“I really feel like JoJo’s older sister,” Johnson said. “And I know we’re going to have this friendship and this bond forever.”

Siwa and Johnson first performed a sexy tango / cha-cha-cha fusion on Icona Pop’s “I love it”.

After getting a perfect score from the judges on this performance, Siwa and Johnson danced like pop stars in sparkly outfits to Lady Gaga’s pride anthem “Born This Way”.

“I’m so excited that for our freestyle we were dancing to Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’,” said Siwa. “I feel, for me, personally, listening to this song and hearing what Lady Gaga is one thing that made me feel comfortable being gay.”

The women got another perfect score of 40 out of 40 for their freestyle performance, but two perfect scores in the final were not enough to win the season. NBA player Iman Shumpert and dancer Daniella Karagach also got perfect scores for both performances and won, and Siwa and Johnson finished second.

“You know, coming here and being the very first same-sex couple, I think people didn’t know what to expect,” Siwa said. “Winning Mirrorball isn’t just winning it for me… it’s winning it for so many people around the world who are maybe afraid to be themselves. “

Earlier in the week, Siwa wrote a thank you message for Johnson on Instagram.

“Trusting you opened my eyes and fixed my brain,” Siwa wrote. “We’ve been through it all together over the past 86 days. We died, we survived and we prospered.

“I will cherish the memories we made over the past 10 weeks forever and hold them for the rest of my life. “
