Maddie Ziegler and Sister Mackenzie Two-Step Past 'Dance Moms'

By    |   Wednesday, 30 Jul 2014 12:32 PM

Maddie Ziegler and little sister Mackenzie, two mainstays on the reality show "Dance Moms," have made a name for themselves away from the show with a music video and other singing projects.

Maddie Ziegler, 11, is the featured dancer on Sia's hit single "Chandelier," a song that has been on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for the past 11 weeks.




"Not only does Ziegler have impressive mastery of her movements, but the youngster's facial expressions are also filled with passion as she leaps and dances around an empty house," wrote Rachel McRady of Us Weekly.

Sister Mackenzie Ziegler, 10, released her own self-titled album in April and it reached No. 1 on the pop charts on iTunes, according to Samantha Lear of WetPaint.com.





"Not only is she killing it domestically, she's also a hit on the Canada, Mexico, and Australia iTunes charts. Not a small feat for the tiny gal," wrote WetPaint.com back in April.

Neither, however, is immune to the drama of "Dance Moms" at the Abby Lee Miller Dance Studio that has made them famous.

Maddie Ziegler found herself at the end of Season 4 of "Dance Moms" competing against her friends when Miller brought in a second dance team to compete against the dance studio girls. Miller placed Maddie with the new incoming team, according to In Touch.

"It bugs me," Maddie Ziegler said about the negative comments she seems to draw from fans of the show. "I know that it's really hard for the other girls when Abby pays more attention to me. It's true, they don't get as much attention.

"But, I don't think it's right for the other moms to talk bad about me or behind my back. It hurts my feelings. And watching them yell at my mom, it makes me sad. Yes, I want to be the favorite and I want to do as many things as I can, but all I do is work hard," the 11-year-old continued.

Their mother, Melissa Ziegler, told In Touch that the girls have developed a thicker skin over the course of the show and are learning not to take social media so seriously.

"Both she and her sister realize now that the people who say things on Twitter or whatever, they don't even know them," Melissa Ziegler told In Touch. "So, it doesn't bother them as much as it used to."
