It’s Sia Week on ‘American Idol’ and we have been waiting our whole lives for this, practically. She brought the house down with an epic performance of ‘Cheap Thrills’ and even worked with the Top 5 so they could cover her songs!
American Idol got a thousand times more awesome when Sia, 40, showed up to perform in the March 24 episode. As usual, she covered her face while performing her song “Cheap Thrills” and we totally loved it!
Insert remaining body paragraph(s) here.
Sia let her three amazing dancers take center stage for the performance, while she stood off to the side, wearing an adorable purple dress and huge, matching bow atop her half black/half blonde wig. She’s made it clear in the past that she’s a very private person and that she wants her career to be about the music and not her looks or personal life, which is why she’s continuously worn wigs during public appearances throughout her career
The singer wasn’t only on-hand to perform, though! She also mentored the Top 4 contestants, Mackenzie Bourg, Trent Harmon, La’Porsha Renae and Dalton Rapattoni, who were all tasked with singing a song she wrote during this week of competition. Obviously, that’s no easy feat, and Sia took her role as an adviser very seriously, offering advice and constructive criticism to all the artists. AND, La’Porsha revealed that they even got to check out her face while behind the scenes, which is exactly what she was hoping for before the mentoring session!
If you’re dying to see what Sia looks like under that wig, don’t worry…we’ve got you covered! The 40-year-old has taken that fake hair off in public before, she just doesn’t do it often. While attending a pre-Grammy party last month, she walked the carpet with her face covered, but totally let her face fly once inside, and photographers caught it all. So beautiful!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Sia’s performance?
