Those Ziegler girls from Dance Moms really know how to foray their talents into bigger and better things. Just last week, we were telling you about little Mackenzie, 9, who’s shot up the iTunes charts with her self-titled album, Mack Z. And now, it’s her older sis Maddie, 11, who’s in the spotlight, starring in Australian hitmaker Sia’s new music video for “Chandelier.” Big things!
If the name Sia doesn’t automatically ring a bell, you may recognize her hit tune “Breathe Me” from just about every dramatic moment on TV and in movies over the last few years. The chanteuse is also a killer songwriter and producer, and she’s responsible for hits like Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” Christina Aguilera’s “You Lost Me,” and Britney Spears’s “Perfume.” In other words, this talented lady knows what she’s doing.
By choosing the Abby Lee Dance Company member to appear in her newest single’s music video, that was one major industry stamp of approval.
The dramatic video features Maddie sporting Sia’s signature blunt bob as she dances around an empty apartment in one long shot. Sure, it's a little creepy, but don't you get chills watching her emote with her moves and her big blue eyes? We didn't know she had it in her!
Way to go, girl! Can’t wait to see what you do next!
