Speaking to People magazine at the 2021 American Music Awards, she added: "I am in a dress and heels for the first time in my life. I want to branch out of my comfort zone, and so today we went for a dress. I got some heels on."

The 18-year-old also shared with Whoopi Goldberg on Tuesday that she had been "wearing heels for two days straight," joking: "It's a new thing."

But after a 10-week run in ABC show Dancing with the Stars, JoJo has begun to feel more confident especially after rocking a stunning black sheer gown with heels to the 2021 American Music Awards.

For her appearance on The View, she wore a gorgeous, waist-cinching, blue sequined jumpsuit which featured black straps and a fabric black belt she tied into a bow. JoJo accessorized with a pair of sky-high Christian Louboutins that elongated her long legs and some delicate necklaces.

She wore her long blonde hair in pigtails and added a pop of sparkle to her eyes with some silver gems.

"I wore little heels on Dancing With the Stars and then my mom convinced me to wear a dress to the AMAs and my partner on the show, Jenna [Johnson Chmerkovskiy], convinced me to wear heels to the AMAs," JoJo said.

"They were like, 'You are going to look really dumb if you wear that dress with sneakers.' And I was like, 'Fair enough. How about a boot?'"

But the pair steered her towards heels, and JoJo added: "I trust my people. That's one thing about me, I really trust the people around me. I trust my mom, I trust my family, I trust my friends, I trust Jen.

"And right now, the two biggest people in my life are my mom and Jen, so trusting them was a no-brainer. I was like, 'They got my back. They're gonna steer me right.'"
