So impressive! Mega talented singer Sia stopped by ‘The Tonight Show’ Jan. 27, and as usual she completely blew us away with her new single ‘Cheap Thrills.’ This woman seriously can do no wrong!
We cannot EVER get enough of Sia and her amazing voice, so it was quite a treat when she stopped by The Tonight Show to visit with Jimmy Fallon and perform “Cheap Thrills” off her brand new album This Is Acting. New music from Sia, 40, is always welcome to us, and she even did a fun pre-taped segment with Jimmy and his house band The Roots where she got to show off her playful side.
Sia donned her usual face-masking black and white wig with a giant white bow atop her head, accompanied by dancers wearing unitards that matched her half and half hair piece. This song is such an amazing jam, and “Cheap Thrills” is a tune she originally wrote for Rihanna, who later passed on it. Well, RiRi’s loss is our gain cause Sia totally slays it!
Sia made a fun pre-taped performance with Jimmy and his in-house band The Roots where they all donned matching black and white wigs — but let their faces show — while Sia, Jimmy, and fellow guest Natalie Portman sang “Iko Iko,” a Creole song made popular by the Grateful Dead. The band used toy instruments and even plastic cups to provide the backing music. So adorable!
We are so happy to be getting new music from the Australian singer-songwriter, as This Is Acting is her follow-up to the wildly successful 1000 Forms of Fear back in 2014, which was her first number one album in the U.S. We’re sure her new album will put her right back on top, so get ready for 2016 music from Sia as her album drops on Jan. 29
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Sia’s performance on The Tonight Show? Will you be buying her new album as soon as it comes out?
