Why Honey Boo Boo is Super Nervous to Perform on ‘Dancing with the Stars: Juniors’ – See Video

Honey Boo Boo aka Alana Thompson is famous for her role on the TLC reality show, ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo‘ that aired from 2012 – 2014.

Now, at age 13, she is taking on a brand new role in ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors.”

Partnering with junior pro dancer, Tristan Ianiero, she sat down with the team mentor, Artem Chigvintsev for an exclusive interview.

“What are you guys the most nervous about?” asks Chigvintsev.

Alana said, “Performing our routines, because what if I mess up?”  “That’s not good,” she said.

“I’m super nervous about that and I’m super nervous to go on the stage.”

However, she quickly interjected her own statement with some a self pep talk.

“But you know what? I got this.  I’m going to go on stage, do this and win,” Thompson says with a bit of sass.
