As for the A-list contenders this season, Tyra is particularly proud of JoJo. “I’m a huge fan of what JoJo Siwa does by being the first person to dance with the same sex,” the host added. “I think it’s necessary, I think it is now. This is where the world is, and it opens the doors for so many people to walk through them and feel safe and accepted for who. they are.”
