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.
Somehow, JoJo managed to dance through the pain and still pull out a win.
I just know Abby Lee Miller is silently applauding somewhere.
