We recently caught up with the 17-year-old singer and social media star on our Instagram live series, Friends From Afar. During the interview, JoJo spilled her favorite behind-the-scenes moment from filming FOX’s “Celebrity Watch Party” with her mom (and adorable pup, Buddy), the real reason why she always wears her hair in a high ponytail, what she’s learned from years of being cyber-bullied by online trolls, and more.
She also looked back on her time on “The Masked Singer,” and revealed that, at one point during the competition, she was absolutely convinced that The Astronaut was Patrick Dempsey, the star of her favorite TV series “Grey’s Anatomy,” but she wasn’t allowed to confront him to ask.
It turns out, country singer Hunter Hayes was actually behind the space-walking singer! LOL!
“I was convinced that it was Patrick Dempsey! And I told my producer…[I said,] ‘Linsdey, if that man in the trailer next to me is Patrick Dempsey and you’re letting me go home without meeting him, we are going to have a problem,” she joked.
