As if Sia's poignant party anthem "Chandelier" weren't beautiful enough by itself, the Australian singer-songwriter went and paired it with a bewitching video. Stunning in its simplicity yet chock-full of talent, the official video, released May 6, features "Dance Moms" star Maddie Ziegler, 11.

A gifted young performer, Ziegler executes Ryan Heffington's mesmerizing choreography, reports Slate, wearing a platinum wig that resembles Sia's own signature 'do.

"I usually think, 'Oh this would work for Rihanna,' or 'this would be a good one for [Britney] or Katy,'" Sia said of "Chandelier" in March. "But this time I was like, 'Uh oh, I think I just wrote a full-blown pop song for myself by accident!'"
