Joanna Noëlle Blagden Levesque (born December 20, 1990), professionally known as Joanna Levesque or JoJo, is an American pop/R&B singer-songwriter and actress who was offered a role as Zoe Stewart on the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana, but she turned down the role because she was not really interested in doing a television show. It was passed on to Miley Cyrus, who got the part (and subsequently named the lead after her).
