With three music videos under her belt in less than a year, it’s safe to say Chloe Lukasiak has been working hard to earn the title of the 2015 Teen Choice Awards’ Choice Dancer. Luckily for the former “Dance Moms” reality star, her fans are enthusiastically baking her nomination.
Fox recently announced a new category, Choice Dancer, for the 2015 show. Voting is currently open, and names from “Dancing With the Stars” professional Mark Ballas to “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographer Travis Wall have been tossed around online. But a quick glance at the #ChoiceDancer hashtag on Twitter and Instagram shows Chloe garnering the most attention from Teen Choice Awards viewers.
Chloe, who parted ways with the Lifetime series in October 2014, responded to the outpouring of support from her fans on Twitter Wednesday, calling their tremendous response “unreal.” The 14-year-old performer's mother and former “Dance Moms” co-star, Christi Lukasiak, has also opened up about the nomination campaign. “I just want to say how humbled and overwhelmed I am for all the support for [Chloe] for #ChoiceDancer,” Christi posted on Twitter Thursday evening. “You guys are unbelievable.”
While much of the hype for a Chloe nomination appears to be coming from “Dance Moms” viewers, her former co-stars also are rooting for her. Tracy Reasons, who starred on the show alongside her daughter Sarah Reasons in Season 4, recently tweeted support for Chloe. “Keep the votes coming for Chloe! Love this kid!” she wrote Friday. America’s Got Talent” Season 1 winner Bianca Ryan, who had Chloe star in her recently released music video “Alice," has also backed the dancer on Twitter.
Other “Dance Moms” leads have also been getting a fair number of nomination votes. Among those also being mentioned on Twitter are Sia music video star Maddie Ziegler and “Dance Moms” Season 5 newcomer JoJo Siwa. Nia Frazier of recent “Star in Your Own Life” music video fame has also made it clear on Twitter that she would love to be nominated.
