Sia & 11-Year-Old Maddie Ziegler Perform "Chandelier" on 'Ellen'

 Accidental pop star/recluse Sia's new album 1000 Forms of Fear is coming out June 3 and she's ramping up the promotional efforts in very Sia ways. Today she performed her new single "Chandelier" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and it's not like any television performance you've ever seen. 

She essentially recreated the video with 11-year-old Maddie Ziegler of Dance Moms performing while she stood in a corner with her back to the audience, singing. Before the performance, Ellen swore to the audience that it was indeed the real Sia. Though we'll have to take her word for it, her voice sounded pretty Sia-like and she even bopped along to the track as it played. 

The lesson: Nobody puts Sia in the corner. Except Ellen.
