Sia 'Big Girls Cry': Maddie Ziegler Gives Another Haunting Performance

By    |   Friday, 03 Apr 2015 09:10 AM

Sia's "Big Girls Cry" music video was released this week with yet another haunting performance from the singer's favorite 12-year-old, Maddie Ziegler, only this time the "Dance Moms" star isn’t exactly dancing.

Completing Sia's video trilogy (Ziegler also starred in the videos for "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart"), the girl once again dons her now-signature leotard and blonde wig in the new clip, which has already garnered more than 4 million views on YouTube Since Thursday.

"You may still be having flashbacks to 'Chandelier' or 'Elastic Heart' (in which Ziegler practically cage-fought Shia LaBeouf), but 'Big Girls Cry' is perhaps the most interesting installment of the Sia-Ziegler partnership — simply because it allows the 12-year-old 'Dance Moms' star the least movement," USA Today reported

"The whole video is predicated on facial expressions. And Ziegler’s are emotive, to say the least. You have to give it to Ziegler — she really does work with the space she’s got."

Simply though the use of facial expressions and jerky movements, Ziegler is able to convey emotion perhaps more expressively than she did through dance, BuzzFeed's Kelley Dunlap noted.

"Sia and her insanely talented mini-me, dancer Maddie Ziegler, have reteamed for yet another heartbreaking, exquisitely choreographed music video," Dunlap wrote. "The 'Big Girls Cry' clip features a close-up of the 12-year-old dance prodigy as she straight-up loses her mind."

"Big Girls Cry" is the latest single from Sia's 2014 album "1,000 Forms of Fear." The song and video appear to have received an overwhelmingly positive response on Twitter.
