Prior to the premiere of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars: Juniors,” many “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” fans anxiously awaited Alana Thompson’s first dance.
And much to some people’s surprise, the teenager did pretty well.
Watch Honey Boo Boo’s full performance below:
Some of the comments on YouTube read:
To all the haters, this girl proved them wrong! Way to go Alana!
Not going to lie I was expecting worse. She did good!
She really shocked me I’m impressed she really proved everyone wrong.
OMG YESSS HONEY BOO BOO CHILD SHE KILLED IT IM SO PROUD OF HER.
Her confidence is worth watching!!
The young pair ended up getting a score of two “6’s” and a “7” at the end. All three of the judges praised Thompson for her confidence both in life and in the ballroom.
However, what the 13-year-old was seen rocking on her arm during her intro also got some people talking.
According to some of the footage shown on the show, Thompson seemingly has a tattoo on her left forearm.

It remains unclear if the tattoo is real or if it’s just temporary. It didn’t appear to be noticeable during their actual performance.
The young reality TV star hasn’t posted about the ink on any of her social media accounts, nor has she spoke of it after fans of the show started questioning the body art.
Take a look at the intro below:
In the end, Thompson and her partner made it through to the next round, thanks to the votes cast by the audience.
The two contestants to get kicked off the show after the first night was Top Chef Junior champion, Addison Osta Smith, and Bristol Palin’s son, Tripp Johnston.
