LOS ANGELES, CA. (WTNH) — Australian singer-songwriter Sia was joined by actress Kristen Wiig onstage to perform her Grammy-nominated hit “Chandelier.”

Known for often keeping her face hidden, Sia turned her back away from the crowd as Wiig and Dance Mom’s Maddie Ziegler performed an unusually choreographed dance to the smash hit.

Wiig and Ziegler captivated the audience as they danced hilariously across the stage, laid out as a messy apartment setting. They both wore white wigs and nude leotards throughout their show-stealing performance. Meanwhile, Sia sang her heart out but hid her face the entire time.

Actor Shia Labeouf, who appeared in Sia’s music video for “Elastic Heart”, recited a poem confessing his love for the singer in his introduction to her performance. “If strength were made of broken pieces, you and I would always win,” said LaBeouf. “Punch me if I stop crying.”

After years of writing major hits for artists including Rihanna and Ne-Yo, Sia raked in a smash hit of her own with “Chandelier.”  She walked the red carpet with Maddie Ziegler, who often co-stars in her music videos. The two dressed as twins for the evening, both wearing huge white wigs and black suits.
