Earlier this week, Sia and Maddie Ziegler visited The Ellen Show to perform “Snowman” off the singer’s new holiday-themed Everyday Is Christmas album.
During the performance, Ziegler puts a Christmas spin on her famous dance moves, Sia stands in the back, singing – while Maddie moves about enthusiastically with two other dancers in fluffy white snowman costumes.
Sia prefers to stay out of the spotlight, so for years, Ziegler’s been making her music come alive to choreography. Earlier this month, the “Cheap Thrills” singer responded to criticism that she’s been passing her “damaging” fame onto 15-year-old Ziegler.
“I do check in with Maddie weekly about whether she wants this,” Sia tweeted, “and assure her if she ever wants it to stop it stops. It’s a conversation we should all be having. Not just myself but all directors, stage parents and agents.”
“Snowman” is featured on Sia’s new holiday album, Everyday Is Christmas, released Nov. 17. Watch the festive performance below.
