Sia Performs On 'Saturday Night Live'
The notoriously elusive songstress performed "Elastic Heart" and "Chandelier" on 'SNL.'

Catching a glimpse of Sia is a rare thing these days, but the singer-songwriter provided us with a uniquely intimate glimpse into the creation of her latest visual “Elastic Heart” in a new behind-the-scenes feature on YouTube’s DanceOn channel.

The video gives us a look at just how involved the singer is on set, working with co-director Daniel Askill, choreographer Ryan Heffington, Maddie Ziegler and Shia LeBeouf on creating the concept and choreography while telling us more about discovering her collaborators. Shia and Maddie also take turns discussing their work with Sia. “The ‘Chandelier’ video was really successful because no one really does any videos like that…usually it’s just the singers featured in it,” Maddie explained of the Grammy-nominated video for “Chandelier.”

Sia also talks about the meaning behind the video, which has received all sorts of interpretations: “We thought it would be interesting if [Shia] is working with Maddie as one of his self-states — maybe his inner child or one of his demons,” she explains. Excitingly, the singer also reveals that the “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart” videos are part of “a trilogy,” which means that there will be one more video on the way as well.
