Siwa brought genie in a bottle vibes as they danced to Jet’s “Are You Going To Be My Girl”.

“This is a whole new ball game for me. I’ve never done anything ballroom before,” Siwa said in a pre-package. “It’s a learning experience that I’m more than ready for.”

Referencing being the first same sex pair, she added, “For the first time in ‘Dancing with the Stars’ history, I am dancing with another female, and I’m really, really proud. I came out in early 2021 and what I love to do is make truly being who you are easier for kids.”
