Sia's "Chandelier" may well be the best music video of the year, largely due to the phenomenal, freewheeling dancing of 11-year-old Maddie Ziegler. Others—including Lena Dunham—have interpreted the song, but now Jimmy Kimmel has joined the fray, donning a wig and leotard to tackle the video's intricate choreography.
Ziegler personally instructs Kimmel and Guillermo, concluding with a reminder to "sell it with your face." They oblige, providing a highly amusing rendition that has them clumsily rolling around and generally looking possessed. Enjoy.
