JoJo Siwa showed up at the American Music Awards last night, ditching her signature sparkly hair bow and wearing a dress and heels for the first time ever.

“I’m in a dress and heels for the first time in my life!” JoJo told Us Weekly. “When I knew I was coming to the AMAs, I was like, ‘uh oh, what am I going to wear?’ I had this transition while being on Dancing With the Stars, where I’ve gone from dressing like I normally dress to kind of looking more adult. And I was like, I want to branch out of my comfort zone. Today, we went for a dress.”


JoJo opted for a gorgeous black gown with sheer panels, and borrowed a pair of heels from her Dancing with the Stars pro partner Jenna Johnson. She also got her nails done for the occasion, saying “I used to hate getting my nails done, literally never would do it. And then when Dancing With the Stars came around, I started to get them done. And, these nails are actually for our performance that we’re doing in the finale tomorrow. These are special.”

JoJo recently broke up with her girlfriend amid filming DWTS, but told Entertainment Tonight that the show (which airs its finale tonight) was a welcome distraction. “There were days when the only thing that I wanted to do was go to rehearsals, dance with Jenna and take my mind off everything,” she said. “That is something that, going through a breakup and a heartbreak, I was so grateful that I had. Dancing With the Stars was my little happiness outlet over the last 10 weeks, so I’m really grateful for that.”
