>> SHE'S HERE!

>> RIGHT HERE.

>> RIGHT IN THIS SEAT!

>> THAT VERY CHAIR.

>> THAT SHE'S SITTING.

>> NO ONE COULD ARGUE OTHERWISE.

>> TRUE STATEMENT RIGHT THERE.

>> AN IRREFUTABLE FACT. JOJO HAS ARRIVED.

>> THANK YOU!

>> JOJO, THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR COMING BACK AND HANGING OUT WITH US. HOW AWESOME IS THIS? CONGRATULATIONS. I WAS SAYING TO YOU UPSTAIRS IN THE GREEN ROOM YOU HAVE 1 TRILLION AND ONE THINGS GOING ON.

>> A BAZILLION THINGS.

>> A TRILLION AND A BAZILLION.

>> DIDN'T KNOW THAT WAS A NUMBER.

>> WE CREATED IT. WHAT A GREAT PROBLEM TO HAVE, TO HAVE SO MANY THINGS.

>> IT IS A GOOD PROBLEM, I WILL ADMIT.

>> I WANT TO START WITH ONE OF THE BIG THINGS WE JUST WATCHED, THAT MUSIC VIDEO. SO MUCH FUN. TELL ME ABOUT MAKING THAT MUSIC VIDEO.

>> THAT MUSIC VIDEO "D.R.E.A.M" WAS AWESOME. IT WASN'T REALLY A DIFFERENT MUSIC VIDEO FOR ME BUT ONE OF THE BIG MUSIC VIDEOS FOR ME. IT WAS COOL TO DO ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE. WE GOT TO USE THE HEELIES IN THEM. I'M OBSESSED WITH HEELIES. I WAS LIKE LET'S DO THESE IN A MUSIC VIDEO. THEY WERE LIKE OKAY. AND WE INCORPORATED IT WITH THE DANCE. IT TURNED OUT AMAZING!

>> LOT OF PRACTICE WITH THE HEELIES, DID IT TAKE TIME OR WAS IT EASY?

>> I'VE BEEN DOING HEELIES SINCE I WAS 4 OR 5. I TOOK A BREAK WITH THEM AND PROBABLY ABOUT THREE MONTHS AGO I WANTED TO DO IT AGAIN AND I'M JUST ROLLING. YOU CAN'T CATCH ME.

>> NEW HEELIES. THAT'S A BIG DEAL, BIG PART OF THE VIDEO.

>> YES.

>> YOU SAID YOU DID YOUR OWN STUNTS IN THIS ONE? DID YOU DO A STUNT?

>> I DID DO MY OWN STUNT. THE PART WHERE I JUMP THROUGH THE SCREEN, THAT WAS ME JUMPING OFF -- I DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD SHARE THIS BUT I'M GOING TO ANYWAYS.

>> LITTLE BIT OF MAGIC.

>> NO, IT WAS NOT MAGIC. I MEAN, IT WAS MAGIC. IT WAS ME JUMPING -- YOU KNOW MOVIE THEATER CHAIRS?

>> YEAH.

>> I STOOD ON TOP OF THEM.

>> OF COURSE. SAW THAT.

>> THERE WAS A BIG MAT, LIKE A BIG, BIG, CUSHIONY MAT AND I JUMPED OFF OF THE EDGE OF THE MOVIE THEATER CHAIRS ON TOP OF THE MAT. LITERALLY FULL BELLY FLOP.

>> VERY SAFE, THOUGH.

>> NO, NOT AT ALL. BUT MY SKILLS ACTUALLY CAME IN HANDY THERE. I HIT THE PERFECT FLYING POSITION.

>> YOU DIDN'T NEED A TRAMPOLINE OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT?

>> NOTHING.

>> THAT WAS AL YOU LIKE --

>> THREE, TWO, ONE, JUMP.

>> HECK OF A JUMP. THAT WAS A REALLY GOOD JUMP.

>> THANK YOU. THAT'S MY SKYDIVING SKILLS RIGHT THERE.

>> WHAT WOULD YOU SAY MADE THIS, ASIDE FROM THE STUFF WE ALREADY DISCUSSED, THINK OF ALL THE MUSIC VIDEOS YOU MADE SO FAR, WHAT MADE THIS DIFFERENT OR THE BIGGEST OR IS THERE SOMETHING NEW YOU LEARNED?

>> WHAT WAS REALLY COOL ABOUT THIS MUSIC VIDEO, ALL MY STUFF HAS HAD A BIG, BIG, BIG STORY BEHIND IT. THIS DIDN'T HAVE A BIG STORY BUT IT WAS KIND OF LIKE A FANTASY, IF THAT MAKES SENSE. IT WAS ME IN A TOTAL OTHER WORLD. YOU CAN'T JUMP INTO A MUSIC SCREEN AND THEN BE IN THE MOVIE BUT ALL MY OTHER MUSIC VIDEOS WERE TOTALLY REALISTIC. THIS WAS LIKE A FANTASY.

>> WHERE DID YOU GET THAT IDEA?

>> THE ORIGINAL IDEA WAS TO HAVE IT BE A DRIVE-IN MOVIE THEATER.

>> VERY HARD TO JUMP INTO THAT SCREEN.

>> VERY MUCH HARDER, TO RUN AND FLY INTO THE SCREEN.

>> DEFINITELY NEED A TRAMPOLINE AT THAT POINT.

>> 1,000%. I WAS LIKE, OKAY, BUT HOW COULD WE DO THAT AND MAKE IT TODAY'S AGE? I LITERALLY LISTENED TO THE LYRICS AND WAS LIKE \M SEE MY FACE ON THE SCREEN SEE MY NAME IN THE LIGHTS GOT TO FOCUS ON YOUR PASSION IF YOU WANT TO GET IT RIGHT \M . I'M LIKE THAT'S LITERALLY THE LYRIC. HOW AM I GOING TO DO THAT?

>> BRING IT TO LIFE.

>> JUMP.

>> WITH THE TRILLION BAZILLION THINGS YOU HAVE GOING ON, IS THAT ONE BIG THING THAT'S STILL ON THE TIMELINE FOR YOU? LIKE YOU WANT TO DO A BIG MOVIE? YOU WANT TO DO A BIG ACTION MOVIE? IF YOU DID A BIG MOVIE, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO DO?

>> PROBABLY WOULD WANT TO DO A COMEDY MOVIE.

>> THAT'S WHAT I WAS THINKING.

>> OR BIO PIC. I LOVE TRUE STORIES. I LIKE ABOUT PEOPLE.

>> HANG ON. WHO DO YOU WANT TO PORTRAY? WHO WOULD YOU PLAY?

>> WHO WOULD I -- OH, WOW!

>> THAT'S A TOUGH ONE. I PUT YOU ON THE SPOT.

>> IF I COULD PLAY ANYONE IT WOULD BE DIFFERENT BUT IF I'M THINKING MY CHARACTER AND MY LOOKS, IT WOULD ALSO STILL BE DIFFERENT. SO THAT'S GOING TO DEPEND. FOR MY LOOKS I COULD GO FOR A YOUNG MILEY CYRUS, YOUNG BRITNEY SPEARS OR YOUNG GAGA. I FEEL LIKE I COULD BE THAT, BUT IF I COULD PLAY ANYBODY, EVEN THOUGH THEY ALREADY JUST DID IT, FREDDIE MERCURY.

>> REALLY?

>> YES, MY FAVORITE HUMAN.

>> DO YOU EVER TRY TO SING -- FAMILY, FREDDY MERCURY.

>> FAMILY FRIENDS, FREDDY MERCURY.

>> HANG ON. WHERE DOES BOBO FIT IN THERE?

>> SHE'S FAMILY. BOBO'S FAMILY.

>> WANT TO MAKE SURE.

>> IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO CONSIDER HER FAMILY, SHE'S NUMBER ONE FRIEND.

>> NUMBER ONE FRIEND?

>> YES.

>> CAN YOU SING QUEEN SONGS? THEY'RE VERY HARD, VERY CHALLENGING.

>> EVERY DAY. EVERY SINGLE DAY I SING IT. EVERY SINGLE DAY, LITERALLY. I COULD GIVE YOU AS MANY FREDDY QUOTES AS YOU WANT. I CAN RECITE AS MANY LINES FROM THE MOVIE AS YOU WANT, LITERALLY. I AM A HUGE --

>> GIVE ME ONE FREDDY QUOTE. GO.

>> OH, MY GOSH! SO MUCH ON THE SPOT. OKAY. I'VE GOT THIS. AN INTERVIEWER ASKED HIM -- FROM WHAT I COULD SEE FROM VIDEOS AND INTERVIEWS HE DIDN'T REALLY LIKE INTERVIEWERS. I DON'T KNOW WHY. I LIKE THEM. I THINK THEY'RE COOL. I THINK YOU'RE GREAT.

>> THANK YOU.

>> BUT, NO. WHAT?

>> YOU'RE WONDERFUL. THAT WAS SO SWEET. YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO DO THAT. GO ON.

>> A LOT OF CELEBRITIES DO GET OFTEN LIKE -- THIS IS NOT FUN. I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS.

>> IT CAN BE HARD FOR SOME PEOPLE.

>> IT CAN DEFINITELY BE HARD. WHO JUST WALKED IN DRESSED AS ME?

>> I DON'T KNOW. DID PEOPLE JUST WALK IN DRESSED AS YOU?

>> TWO OLDER BOYS WALKED IN DRESSED AS ME. IT'S GOING TO BE EVERYTHING. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THAT.

>> I DIDN'T PICK UP ON THAT BUT I'M VERY EXCITED TO SEE THAT.

>> ME, TOO. ANYWAY, FREDDY IS SITTING WITH AN INTERVIEWER AND THE INTERVIEWER SAYS GIVE US A DEMONSTRATION. AND FREDDY GOES, SEE, I TOLD YOU! THEY JUST CAME IN.

>> HELLO!

>> WELCOME.

>> I'M OBSESSED WITH THIS.

>> HANG ON. WE ARE OBVIOUSLY GOING TO SPEND A SERIOUS AMOUNT OF TIME OF UNPACKING THIS MOMENT. FIRST FINISH YOUR FREDDY MERCURY.

>> FINISH MY QUOTE.

>> YES.

>> FREDDY GOES, WELL, ARE YOU PAYING ME? AND THEY GO NO AND SO HE GOES, THEN NO DEMONSTRATION.

>> FIRST OF ALL, KUDOS. I DID PUT YOU ON THE SPOT AND YOU DELIVERED.

>> YOU WANT MORE? I CAN DELIVER ALL DAY LONG.

>> BUT WE HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME. TRILLION, BILLION THINGS. SO WE'VE GOT THIS AMAZING MUSIC VIDEO WHICH, OF COURSE, FEATURES "D.R.E.A.M" FROM YOUR FIRST EP PROPER. YOU CAN'T STOP LOOKING. LOOK AT YOU. WE'RE GOING TO GET TO IT. I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS EITHER. WE'RE GOING TO DISCOVER IT TOGETHER. REAL QUICK, THE EP. SO EXCITING. SO AMAZING. COLLECTION, ANY SONGS YOU WANTED TO PUT ON THERE BUT COULDN'T FIT IN THAT TIME? HOW DID YOU GET TO THESE FOUR?

>> SO MANY SONGS THAT I CAN'T WAIT TO RELEASE.

>> THEY'RE ON THE WAY?

>> THEY'RE ON THE WAY.

>> ALREADY RECORDED I HAVE FOUR SONGS THAT ARE STILL IN THE BANK AND THEN I HAVE THREE, I THINK, THAT ARE WRITTEN. ANYWAYS, YEAH, THE FOUR SONGS THAT ARE COMING, I LITERALLY CANNOT WAIT FOR. I AM SO EXCITED. THEY'RE PROBABLY MY FAVORITE KIND OF ROUND-UP SONGS IN A REALLY LONG TIME. THEY ARE MY TOP, TOP, TOP SONGS AND I'M PUMPED UP ABOUT IT.

>> I IMAGINE ALL THOSE SONGS YOU'RE PLAYING ON YOUR TOUR, WHICH IS GOING TO BE HAPPENING VERY, VERY SOON.

>> PERFECT, EH.

>> WE'LL GO TO THE AUDIENCE IN A COUPLE OF MINUTES. A BILLION THINGS TO SORT THROUGH THAT YOU'VE BEEN WORKING ON. THIS WAS REALLY NEAT. LUNCH KITS. OF ALL THE THINGS, I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. THIS IS SO COOL. YOU HAVE YOUR OWN SET OF --

>> JOJO FOOD.

>> JOJO FOOD. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN? HOW DID YOU GET JOJO FOOD?

>> YOU KNOW, YEAH.

>> HAVE YOU TRIED IT? HAVE YOU EATEN THE JOJO FOOD?

>> YES, I HAVE. I DID FILM MY REACTION TO IT FOR THE FIRST TIME. I SAW IT IN STORES AND ENDED UP GETTING IT IN THE MAIL AND IT'S SO GOOD. LITERALLY, IT'S AMAZING. HAVE YOU EVER HAD THE ANIMAL CRACKERS THAT USED TO BE AT McDONALD'S THAT LIKE -- WE'VE ALL HAD THEM.

>> BUT IT'S BEEN A WHILE BUT I'VE HAD THEM.

>> REMEMBER LITTLE CESAR'S THE ONES THAT THEY HAVE? SUPER SWEET AND GOOD, ALMOST LIKE THE SAME ONES. THEY'RE SO GOOD. THEY'RE SO SWEET AND SO YUMMY. I COULD LIVE OFF OF THEM.

>> IS THAT THE MOST SURPRISING THING YOU'VE SEEN THAT HAS JOJO BOWS ON IT? MY OWN FOOD?

>> OH, NO.

>> WAIT.

>> OH, NO.

>> TELL ME THIS STORY.

>> THE MOST FOR ME THE MOST INTERESTING JOJO MERCH OUT THERE ARE THE JOJO UNDERWEAR, THAT'S A FUN ONE. JOJO THREE-IN-ONE SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER AND BODY WASH. CRAZY FOAM IS WHAT IT'S CALLED. THAT WAS A PRETTY CRAZY THING TO SEE MY FACE ON. I MEAN, JUST LIKE EVERYDAY THINGS THAT YOU WOULD NEVER IMAGINE FROM ERASERS. JUST SO MANY THINGS.

>> SO MANY DIFFERENT THINGS.

>> YEAH.

>> IT ALL STARTED WITH A BOW.

>> EVERYTHING STARTED WITH A BOW AND A D.R.E.A.M.

>> YES.

>> TO SEE YOU AS A CARTOON IS SO, SO COOL. WHAT DID YOU THINK THE FIRST TIME YOU SAW YOURSELF AS A CARTOON?

>> IT'S CRAZY. THE CARTOON IS SO COOL. IT'S MY FIRST TIME AND BOBO'S FIRST TIME EVER BEING ANIMATED. I THINK MY FAVORITE PART ABOUT IT IS HOW I'M THE VOICE OF EVERY CHARACTER THAT'S IN THE SHOW.

>> I THOUGHT SO.

>> IF YOU SEE ME IT'S ME. IF YOU SEE BOBO, IT'S ME. ANY OTHER DOG IN IT, IT'S ME. AIRPLANE PASSENGERS, IT'S ME. IF YOU HEAR AN AIRPLANE PILOT, IT'S ME. EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER IS ME, WHICH IS REALLY COOL. I LIKE THAT. I THINK THAT'S REALLY FUN AND SHOWS MY DIFFERENT VOICES THAT I CAN HAVE IN LIFE.

>> YOU HAVE SO MANY TALENTS.

>> THANK YOU.

>> SO MANY TALENTS.

>> THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

>> WHAT ARE THE VOCAL -- WHAT ARE THE RECORDING SESSIONS LIKE? HOW IS THAT DIFFERENT FOR YOU THAN WHEN YOU GET TO DO SOMETHING AT HOME, A YOUTUBE VIDEO OR SOMETHING?

>> IT'S DIFFERENT FOR ME BECAUSE I -- THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING AND I DON'T NECESSARILY. I'VE NEVER DONE ANIMATED BEFORE. IT'S NOT REALLY MY FIELD OF EXPERTISE, AS ONE MIGHT SAY. SO IT WAS COOL GOING IN THERE AND BEING LIKE, OKAY, I HAVE TO TRUST THESE PEOPLE AND DO WHAT THEY SAY. IF I WAS AT HOME I WOULD GO BACK AND FORTH AND SAY HEY, EVERYONE, IT'S JOJO AND BOBO.

>> AND THIS IS THE JOJO BOBO SHOW SHOW. YO YO! IS IT ME, MOMMY? SO I WOULD KEEP GOING BUT WE HAD TO DO THEM ALL SEPARATE. EVERY SINGLE LINE SEPARATE. IT'S CRAZY.

>> THAT WAS HARD FOR YOU TO DO? DID THEY GIVE YOU THE OTHER LINE BACK SO YOU KNOW WHO YOU'RE TALKING TO?

>> SOMETIMES THEY WILL. OTHER TIMES WE'LL DO ALL THE JOJO LINES AND THEN ALL THE BOBO LINES BUT OTHER TIMES WE HAVE TO DO PICKUPS, THEY FEED ME IN AND WE KEEP GOING.

>> LAST QUESTION, DO YOU EVER GET TIRED?

>> NO.

>> GOD, THAT'S AMAZING.

>> YESTERDAY I GOT ABOUT 2 1/2 HOURS OF SLEEP AND TODAY I GOT ABOUT 4 1/2 HOURS OF SLEEP.

>> HOLD ON TO THAT FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN, JOJO. WE HAVE SOME QUESTIONS IN THE AUDIENCE RIGHT NOW. FIRST ONE IS GOING TO BE RIGHT HERE. GO FOR IT.

>> MICHAEL DAVID. CONGRATULATIONS. I'VE BEEN WATCHING YOU LITERALLY FROM THE START ON "ABBY'S ULTIMATE DANCE." SO BEING ON "DANCE MOMS" AND PERFORMING EVERY SINGLE WEEK AND ALL THE DIFFERENT LESSONS YOU'VE LEARNED WHAT'S THE MOST VALUABLE PIECE OF LESSON YOU'LL TAKE ON TOUR WITH YOU?

>> OH, MY GOSH!

>> GREAT QUESTION.

>> HONESTLY, HOW TO JUST GO. HOW TO JUST DO IT, GO NONSTOP. FROM "DANCE MOMS" WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS THE OTHER DAY. ABBY HERSELF HAS TAUGHT ME SO MUCH JUST FROM BEING ABLE, A, TO SIT IN A MEETING TO B, HOW TO PUT MY NAPKIN ON MY LAP. FROM LITTLE THINGS TO BIG THINGS THAT I'M SO, SO, SO GRATEFUL AND SO THANKFUL FOR. AND LITERALLY I COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT RIGHT NOW. IF I HAD TO PICK ONE THING IT WOULD PROBABLY BE HOW TO JUST GO AND NOT STOP AND THAT I WILL SLEEP WHEN I'M IN THE GRAVE.

>> IS THAT WHAT YOU THINK OF? WE HAVE TWO MORE HERE IN A SECOND. IS THAT WHAT YOU THINK WHENEVER YOU FIND YOURSELF PRESENTED WITH A CHALLENGE OR WHEN SOMETHING IS HARD, IS THAT WHAT YOU THINK OF? JUST GO, JUST KEEP GOING?

>> EVENTUALLY I'LL BE ABLE TO SLEEP. FOR NOW I'VE GOT ONE LIFE TO LIVE AND I'M GOING TO LIVE IT TO THE FULLEST.

>> THAT'S HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN THIS ROOM RIGHT NOW.

>> 7,000?

>> I'M KIDDING. YOU CAN'T TELL AT HOME SO I LIE ABOUT THAT.

>> A LITTLE LESS THAN THAT.

>> LITTLE LESS.

>> BUT, NO, THE BOWS ARE CRAZY. 7,000. IT'S CRAZIER HOW MANY -- I DON'T KNOW THE EXACT NUMBER THAT WERE MADE. WELL, ABOUT THAT. I LIKE ANYTHING WITH SEQUINS ON IT. ANY OF THE SEQUINS ONES.

>> HANG ON. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE? DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE BOW? ARE YOU WEARING IT RIGHT NOW?

>> YEAH.

>> THAT ONE MATCHES YOUR OUTFIT REALLY GOOD.

>> THAT WAS A GREAT QUESTION. WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THAT QUESTION?

>> IT WAS A PERFECT QUESTION.

I JUST LOVE THAT I HAVE THE ABILITY TO CONNECT WITH ALL THOSE PEOPLE AND THAT THEY KNOW THAT I LOVE THEM FOR WHO THEY ARE AND THAT I SUPPORT THEM FOR WHO THEY ARE. AND I JUST -- I LOVE THAT BETWEEN THE KIDS AND ALL OF YOU, THIS ROOM MAKES ME SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW. EVERYONE IS SO DIFFERENT, SO UNIQUE AND I LOVE YOU ALL.

>> YAY!

>> ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I'M GETTING THE SIGNAL -- WE COULD DO THIS ALL DAY, OBVIOUSLY.

>> I KNOW.
