JoJo Siwa will be the first woman to compete with a female pro in season 30 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' a history-making move from the long-running series. On Thursday, ABC announced JoJo is joining the cast of 'DWTS' for their milestone season at the network's Television Critics Association virtual press tour, along with the news of the dance competition's groundbreaking pairing. JoJo said at the event, 'There are a lot of barriers we're going to have to break through. Who leads? How do you dress? What shoes do you wear? It's all something that I'm looking forward to.' The 18-year-old entertainer also added, 'It's going to be tricky, but it's going to give so much to people out there.'
