This week’s Music Video Monday is a heartfelt plee to forget that you’ve seen this video before. Forget the hype, the controversy and the fame.

Sia’s ‘Chandelier’.

Sia has been doing her thang for tens of years and after Destiny from Zero 7 became a soundtrack favourite, featuring on Blue Crush and Roswell amongst other productions, Sia’s style has finally returned with gusto.

Maddie Ziegler is the inimitable talent in all of this. At just 12 ears of age she is the epitome of everything that is good and great about Contemporary dance. Really watch her, watch the furrows in her brow, the elasticity of her expressions and her command of every word that Sia sings.

This video should make you want to cry. And then stop to breathe. Then smile a little. And oh… oh… yep… You’re crying again.

Then watch Elastic Heart. OMG to the power of YES!.
