Maddie Ziegler, the Dance Moms pre-teen sensation, jumped back into her flesh-colored leotard to perform at the Grammys to Sia’s “Chandelier” in a controversial dance that mocked itself with a surprise appearance by Kristen Wiig.

Ziegler danced wildly in videos for the Sia song and another of her hits, “Elastic Heart.”

The 12-year-old dancer’s appearance in the “Chandelier” video raised eyebrows because of its sexual nature. But Sia’s “Elastic Heart” video caused an uproar on social media because Maddie danced with 28-year-old actor Shia LaBeouf.

In a surprise appearance, LaBeouf introduced the performance with a poem written by one of his fans. Hopefully, she was over 18.

The age-gap and the sensual nature of the dance led Sia to apologize to anyone who was offended by suggestions of pedophilia.

At the Grammys, Maddie danced to “Chandelier” in a set similar to the video’s. But this time Wiig was there to add levity to the number. She wore an identical nude-colored leotard and blonde wig.
