Maddie Ziegler SiaIf you loved Maddie Ziegler's incredible dancing in Sia's "Chandelier" video, you are in for a real treat. Maddie and Sia paired up again for a performance of "Alive" on Ellen ... and it's completely breathtaking.

Maddie's dancing talent is absolutely amazing. She's only 13 years old NOW ... but she's been astonishing audiences for years -- first on Dance Moms, of course.

The mix of Sia's off-beat, artistic aesthetic and sound, that amazing choreography, and Maddie's soulful dancing is a rare and perfect combination.

Watch the moving performance:

Wow, right? Two true artists, right there. Neither of them is afraid be be raw, vulnerable, or even "ugly"... that's what makes them so powerful and compelling.

Not, of course, that either of them are "ugly" -- obviously not. But the fact that they don't always have to be "pretty" is so refreshing. I mean, Sia doesn't even show her face, which is totally awesomely weird and wonderful just in itself! But the lyrics, the choreography -- none of it is designed to be something that's just pretty to look at. It's beautiful, strong, wild, mysterious ... anything but pretty or sexy.

I love seeing women onstage being so fierce ... and I especially love seeing a young girl in such a strong role.

More, more, more, Sia and Maddie!
