Sia may not need dollar bills to have fun tonight (or top the charts), but she does have a secret weapon: her iconic, sure-to-be-in-the-Smithsonian WIG!

Let’s face it: where would the music industry be without glamour, and what’s more glamorous than an ultra-fashion wig? Short ‘n’ sassy or wind-machine-flowy, wigs helped many of our favorite stars reach hair-raising heights on the charts…and look damn good while doing so.

It’s time to pay homage to the power of the wig, chyldren, lest someone snatch yours!
