Australian pop artist and prolific songwriter Sia has just released the music video for lead single “Chandelier” from her upcoming album 1000 Forms of Fear.

Although Sia does not make an appearance, the video features an incredible performance by Maddie Ziegler, the 11-year-old star of Lifetime’s “Dance Moms”

"Very proud of the gifted Maddie Ziegler, an incredible crew, choreographer Ryan Heffington, cinematographer Sebastian Wintero and my brilliant co-director Daniel Askill,” wrote Sia in a statement. “Together we shared a beautiful day, and created something we are all very proud of. Here are the fruits."

  1. With the hair, she looks like a mini-Sia. Great dancing.

  2. Maggie is great!

    By the way, the show is "Dance Moms." Yes, that same Lifetime show with moms screaming at the dance teacher, Abby Lee Miller. There is more to the show than just the yelling. Abby Lee can choreograph winning dance numbers and encourage her students to perform them. The process ain't pretty but the dancing is.

    Maddie has a younger sister who is poised to give Maddie some competition.

  5. Sia consistently makes my favorite music and sings like no other. I hope this is the solo performance that catapults her onto everyone's playlist

  6. Maddie is clearly a great talent. Not so sure about the guy who choreographed this though..

  7. Not sure I get that it was an incredible performance. There are some good moves, but there wasn't much elegance to the rest - the transitions in particular looked very amateur - no lines - and no extension. Just straightening the leg would have helped make it look less awkward during those transitions. Just my non-professional, opinionated take.

  9. I have to say that that is an extremely adult dance for a pre-teen. And while she performed it competently, it was hideous--simply bad and over-indulgent--choreography.

  10. I can't believe some people can't see the artistic value of this piece !! And for those inside the box it is suppose to look awkward and not perfect.
