'Girls' actress is special guest for 'Late Night with Seth Myers' performance
Lena Dunham joined Sia for a performance of the singer-songwriter’s new single ‘Chandelier’ on US TV last night (June 9). See above to watch now.
The Girls writer and actress donned Sia’s blonde bob wig and danced as she sang the song face down in a pillow on top of bunk beds. During the dance Dunham smashes into objects around the mocked up bedroom, throws toilet paper around before climbing into the bed with Sia as the performance ends.
The Late Night performance is based on the official ‘Chandelier’ video, which features 11 year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler.
Sia recently claimed that she could have given ‘Chandelier’ to Beyonce or Rihanna but chose to keep it for herself. The former Zero 7 singer has enjoyed huge success in recent years as a songwriter for hire, penning hits for Beyoncé and Rihanna as well as Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Eminem. Most recently she contributed a number of songs to Kylie Minogue’s new album ‘Kiss Me Once’.
However, ‘Chandelier’ is the first track to be heard from Sia’s forthcoming solo album ‘1,000 Forms Of Fear’, her first since ‘We Are Born’ in 2010.
