Watch Sia Perform ‘Chandelier,’ with Help from Lena Dunham
By Shannon Carlin
With a little help from Girls star Lena Dunham, Sia recreates her video for “Chandelier” on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Well, sort of.
In the original clip, Dance Moms star, Maddie Ziegler does an interpretive dance to the track off Sia’s upcoming album, 1000 Forms of Fear (out July 7).
But while Maddie is a true professional, Dunham’s dance skills are a tad bit different. More interpretive, one might say.
In her version last night (June 9), Dunham prances around the stage in a Sia-like blonde wig and all-white suit lip-synching behind cardboard cutouts, sucking on her thumb, playing peek-a-boo with herself and unrolling toilet paper, before ending up in bed, spooning with Sia.
What’s Sia doing while all this happens? Well, she’s singing while resting facedown on the top bunk of a bunk bed.
The singer, who recently performed on Ellen with her back to the crowd, is not a big fan of performing in front of people. But, don’t worry — that’s her really singing. We swear.
