This is a first for Dancing with the Stars, but the British and Australian versions of the show have featured same-sex pairings.

You might know her from her YouTube channel with 12.3 million subscribers, but she’s no stranger to dance competitions or reality TV.

She was a cast member on Dance Moms and recently competed on The Masked Singer. Plus there’s also, y’know, her entire music career.
