At this point, we honestly don’t want anyone else to star in Sia’s music videos besides Maddie Ziegler. Just to give you a quick refresher, the 13-year-old dancer has been featured in “Chandelier,” “Elastic Heart” with Shia LaBeouf, “Alive,” “Big Girls Cry,” and now “Cheap Thrills.” Fresh off the singer-songwriter’s This Is Acting album, the video for the track, featuring Sean Paul, is directed by Sia and Daniel Askill. As expected, it’s a beautifully choreographed performance piece with Ziegler leading the troupe every step of the way.
After Ziegler announced that she would be departing from Dance Moms, we felt a tiny void in our hearts start to develop. Luckily, we will get to watch her as a judge on next season’s So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation so, at least, there’s that to look forward to.
For now, watch the dancing queen as she transforms into another version of Sia in the clip, above.
