JoJo Siwa's D.R.E.A.M. MIX! (WorldWide LIVE)

WORLDWIDE LIVE is FINALLY here!! I built this stage in my backyard so that way people all over the world could watch me perform!! This was my first Live Performance on WorldWide LIVE and it's just getting started! Next Friday I will be performing 3 Songs! I'll be performing Kid in a Candy Store, I want Candy/Tootsie Roll, and Only Getting better! DON'T MISS IT!



Grab your bows, dance moves, and get ready for JoJo Siwa’s *WORLDWIDE LIVE*.

After having to postpone her sell-out first world tour, Nickelodeon’s JoJo Siwa D.R.E.A.M. The Tour due to the on-going global COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, JoJo will be treating fans to a virtual concert!

The special LIVE performance will stream on on Friday, May 1st at 12:00 PM PT / 3:00 PM ET right from her backyard!

In a behind the scenes clip of building the stage, JoJo explained how she came up with the idea when considering performing online for her fans. "I don’t want to sit on the couch and sing a song, or sit in my bedroom and sing a song. That’s not what I do", said JoJo, "I am a performer, I put on a show. So I let my imagination run wild!" Check out the behind the scenes clip below!:

JoJo will also be part of Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2020: Celebrate Together, a show packed with stars, surprises and slime--and hosted by Victoria Justice (Victorious, Zoey 101, Fun Size), airing on Nickelodeon USA and YTV Canada on Saturday, May 2, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT), and on Nickelodeon channels and programming blocks globally soon after. With kids having cast millions of votes for their favorite celebrities, movies, games and more, this year’s virtually produced show will reveal the winners through some of the most creative orange-blimp acceptances in KCA history.

The show will feature JoJo Siwa’s Slime Day, in which the star will discover slime that has been secretly placed in every area of her home!

Although JoJo has been in quarantine, the social media phenomenon has been keeping busy, including launching her own ice cream called "Sweet Celebrations" at Walmart, recording messages for kids who were set to meet the star as their Make-A-Wish - which had to be canceled or postponed because of COVID-19, and FaceTiming Sienna Wilson to celebrate her third birthday! JoJo's also working on her new Nickelodeon movie.

JoJo Siwa Finally Reveals Why She’s Been Ditching Her Signature Ponytail and Bow

JoJo Siwa fans are always paying attention. During the COVID-19 quarantine, her followers quickly picked up on the fact that she’s been ditching her signature ponytail and bow while isolating at home. But now, the 16-year-old social media star has finally revealed the reason why she’s been keepin’ it casual.

“Recently, I’ve been showing myself looking different — not the classic rainbow, sparkles and side ponytail with a JoJo bow,” she wrote as a text overlay in a TikTok post on Thursday, April 29.

She continued, “I’ve been hated on for YEARS for dressing ‘young’ and acting ‘childish.’ People think this is me changing. LOL nope! I love who I am!”

So if you’re one of Siwa’s fans who’s been encouraging the young star to keep her look toned down as of late, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen anytime soon. The dancer explained, “This just me at night or in the morning!”

For the video, Siwa continued her streak of dressing casually. She kept her casual ponytail covered up under a blue hoodie, styled with black Adidas track pants, fun socks and glasses.

The Dance Moms alum has made headlines recently for showing off casual hairstyles on the ‘gram. It all began when the Los Angeles resident shared a video of her naturally wavy hair texture on April 21. Fans went wild seeing her without her high ponytail and bow.

She even wore simple black graphic T-shirt for the video clip, a stark contrast from her usual colorful, eccentric outfits.

And just about a week later, she posted two more videos sporting a low-key side braid and sweats.

“I think this is the first time I’ve seen her without bows and colors,” a TikTok user commented on one of videos. Another said, “NO HIGH PONY pop off JoJo.”

And a third user speculated that she’s probably just skipping the ponytail to give her hair a break! Judging by Siwa’s announcement to fans, it seems like they were right! The social media-goer said, “Everyone keeps talking about the missing side pony…due the girl has to give her hair a break sometimes so it doesn’t fall out…”

Us Weekly has a feeling that JoJo Siwa’s not saying goodbye to her JoJo Bows anytime soon. The girl has a collection of over 12,000 different styles, after all.
