Abby Lee Miller‘s protege Maddie Ziegler has officially arrived – like beyond arrived! The 12-year-old Dance Moms star made her mark performing at 57th Annual Grammy Awards, where she and comedian Kristen Wiig did a spoof on Maddie’s infamous Sia videos.
Maddie and Kristen performed “Chandelier” (which thankfully was chosen over “Elastic Heart” featuring Shia, who was also featured in the spoof). Maddie and Sia also coordinated with matching outfits, custom designed by Armani, which the pair donned on the red carpet (above).

“It was an honor getting to dance with Kristen,” Maddie told Fashionista. “She did really well for not being a dancer.” Maddie says she didn’t have to help the actress at all with the routine. Maddie adds that the infamous wig was custom made and can sometimes be a annoying. “Sometimes when I’m dancing it gets a little hot,” she admits.
The performance was dubbed one of the stand-out moments of the Grammys (sorry Kanye! #TryHard) and Maddie is earning praise for her electric performance, which no doubt Abby Lee will be taking credit for.
Luckily, Abby was able to watch Maddie on stage, from the audience, as she attended the awards ceremony.
“Thank you @sia for being a fan of my #aldc and embracing the incredible talents of my student @madisonziegler1313,” Abby gushed. “Sometimes I really feel like I should swing on a #chandelier then there are days like this and people like you! #breakaleg #aldcla #Grammys #dancemoms #aldcalways”
What an amazing accomplishment for Maddie! Congratulations.
