Grammys 2015: Kristen Wiig plays Sia in 'Chandelier' performance

Kristen Wiig just joined the list of stars who’ve performed in place of Sia: The actress donned a platinum blond wig and danced with “Elastic Hearts” star—and Sia’s mini-me—Maddie Ziegler for a live performance of “Chandelier” at the Grammys.

Shia LaBeouf, who starred opposite Ziegler in the “Elastic Hearts” video, introduced their performance with a poem—but the Fury actor sadly didn’t rip off his tux to reveal a nude leotard. Instead, the camera relocated to a room where Wiig and Ziegler were waiting to come to life.

Although Wiig started off dancing on her own, Ziegler eventually joined in so the two could engage in a somewhat combative routine that peaked with an embrace (and some funny faces) between the two. 

Lena Dunham performed with Sia back in June on Late Night With Seth Meyers. As the singer lied facedown on a bed and sang “Chandelier,” Dunham—like Wiig, wearing a Sia-like blond wig—interpreted the song into dance. 

Sia was nominated for four awards total at this year’s Grammys.
