I love Sia, I love Maddie Ziegler (I’ve been binge watching Dance Moms, no shame!) and I love ‘Chandelier’ (and the entire 100 Forms of Fear album), so obviously I was going to love their live performance of the song on the Grammys. Except they kinda threw a wrench in the whole operation by adding Kristen Wiig, and I really wasn’t sure what I was going to think of it. Verdict? It’s actually pretty amazing.
Wiig pulls it off – she gets the frantic emotion of the song just right and really conveys it – frankly I wouldn’t have even thought it was her if it wasn’t pointed out to me. The only downfall to this is that it seriously cut down Maddie’s part, which is outright amazing (if you’ve seen the original video or any of the other live performances of this song, you’ll know what I mean).
All in all, one of – if not THE – best performances of the night.
Are you a Sia fan?
