Another day, another massive Sia hit! In her new music video, the faceless singer opts to stay hidden in the corner while her wig-wearing protege, Maddie Ziegler, takes center stage for an incredible performance. Click inside to WATCH!
Sia, 40, loves to stay out of the spotlight, and that’s why it’s no surprise to see her tucked into the back of the music video for “Cheap Thrills.” In the video, Maddie Ziegler, 13, performs some insanely cool choreography along with the help of two handsome male dancers.

Sia, is that you? Yes, that really is Sia, the so-called faceless singer, standing on a small box in the back left corner of her latest music video, “Cheap Thrills.” The video, which is called the “performance edit,” features Sia singing in the background as her three dancers grab hold of the spotlight for themselves. Typical Sia!
Former Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler returns to the Sia music video franchise once again, and this time she’s rocking a half-blonde, half-black wig along with her nude leotard. Along with her incredible dance moves, Maddie often makes silly faces and prances around with her two male counterparts in what looks like a fun time on the playground. Except, of course, their playground is a minimalistic stage!
Sia teased the video — and Maddie’s return — on Twitter with a fun little screen grab that kept all three dancers faces hidden. Tricky, Sia!

Let’s be honest: the only thing that could have made this video any better would be an appearance by either Shia LaBeouf and Kristen Wiig, both of whom have been featured in her music videos and performances in the past. Maybe next time!
