JoJo Siwa Performs ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ as Eminem on ‘That’s My Jam’
JoJo Siwa is a guest on this week’s episode of That’s My Jam, and the show has shared an early release clip of her performance. In the video, Siwa plays “Wheel of Musical Impressions,” taking on a cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” in the style of rapper Eminem.

“Wheel of Musical Impressions” challenges the guest to perform a popular song while doing an impression of another artist. In this case, Siwa spun the wheel to get “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Eminem.
The Dancing with the Stars runner-up took the mic and put her all into the performance, turning the iconic Queen song into a rap, featuring some seriously fast-paced lyrics. Siwa jumped around the stage, swinging the fringe on her sequined jacket.
Host Jimmy Fallon and Siwa’s fellow guests (Jenna Dewan, Jay Pharoah, and Nikki Glaser) were clearly impressed by the 19-year-old’s performance. Even Siwa seemed surprised by it, saying afterward, “Where did that come from?”

Fans Discuss the Show’s Rehearsed Nature
While That’s My Jam tries to make it seem like the celebrities’ performances are spontaneous, it’s pretty clear that they were rehearsed ahead of time. Some fans in the YouTube comments of Siwa’s performance had a few things to say about this.
“There is no one on earth who could have done that on the spot, without prior knowledge of what was going to be picked and having spent time practicing it,” one user wrote. “These are talented people doing fun things we can enjoy as is. I see no reason why they have to lie and mislead people into thinking it was just randomly picked without practicing.”
While many fans enjoyed Siwa’s performance, they didn’t see the point of the show pretending that nothing was rehearsed. As one commenter wrote, “Very entertaining and fun! but come on … why lie and say this is random and not planned and rehearsed?”
You can catch the new episode of That’s My Jam on Monday night at 10/9c on NBC.
