Watch Sia, Maddie Ziegler, & A Signing Mime Do SNL

We wondered what new excuse Sia would come up with to cover her face during her appearance on Saturday Night Live, and now we have our answer. She wore the same veil that she did during the promo and let other people take the spotlight, though less so than usual. Maddie Ziegler and another dancer did an interpretive piece while Sia sang her new single “Elastic Heart” at the center of the stage, giving the audience only a profile view. During “Chandelier,” she faced the audience while a mime gestured the song alongside her. It’s a big step up from barely appearing on the stage at all, so maybe she’s slowly getting out of this phase. Watch both performances below.

Sia’s 1000 Forms Of Fear is out now via RCA.
