'DWTS' Disney Night: JoJo Siwa talks about 'villains', fans say its Abby Lee Miller
While JoJo Siwa opened up about dealing with villains and haters, fans couldn't help but think she was referring to Abby Lee Miller
With each passing week, the competition on 'Dancing With The Stars' continues to get tougher, as the celebrities go all with their performances. With a double elimination taking place this week, the stakes were higher than ever as the dancing duo entered the second half of 'Disney Night.'
Having portrayed the perfect Prince Charming on 'Disney Heroes Night', JoJo Siwa and pro Jenna Johnson were all set to unleash their inner villains as they danced the Paso Doble to 'Ways To Be Wicked' from 'Descendants 2'

Len Goodman noted that performance could've been hectic, but Siwa had it under control. Derek Hough agreed with Goodman -- it had power and the 'oomph' factor.
Bruno Tonioli pointed out that it was a Paso Doble like no other, while Carrie Ann Inaba noted that even though she felt the dance was in fact hectic, she enjoys when Siwa has elegance. The judges gave her a score of 35 out of 40, bringing her grand total to 70 out of 80.
While Siwa has a fan base of her own, fans of 'Descendants 2' were excited to see her and Johnson play Mal and Evie. "jenna and jojo's chemistry gets better and better every dance they are fire together #dwts" tweeted a fan. "JOJO SIWA WAS MAL FROM DESCENDANTS IN DWTS TONIGHT MY GAY HEART IS THRIVING!!! dove cameron as mal is the loml" added another. "jojo and jenna as mal and evie on dwts just adds another level of gay to mal and evie" pointed out a fan of the show.

Both prior to and post her performance JoJo opened up about having encountered negative influences in her life and how it affected her. She spoke about how she's always had 'villains' around her and received constant hate. It's what prompted her at age 12 to write an anti-bullying song. She even opened up about how haters never leave, but neither do lovers. She emphasised the need to focus on the people who support your journey and cherish them instead. While Siwa's monologue was a heartfelt one, fans were quick to point out that regarding the 'villains' in her life, she was referring to 'Dance Moms' coach Abby Lee Miller.
"Abby Lee Miller after put JoJo on the bottom of pyramid every weeks in dance moms and few years later she's watching JoJo on the top of table in #DWTS" tweeted a fan. "not jojo calling abby lee miller a villain #dwts" joked another. "Jojo: I've been around villains. Me: You mean like Abby Lee Miller and your mom? I know, I'm awful. #DWTS" tweeted a fan. ""i've been around villains" jojo's talking about abby lee miller lmaoo #dwts" stated a fan.
