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.
