Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler has teamed up with Sia one last time to lose her mind in the new music video for “Big Girls Cry.”

Ziegler has been featured in two previous Sia videos. First, she made her mark in the iconic wig and leotard during “Chandelier.” She followed that up starring opposite Shia LaBeouf in “Elastic Heart.” 

Now the trilogy of videos featuring Ziegler is complete with “Big Girls Cry.” In the previous videos Ziegler worked within confined spaces—but alone and with a partner—to portray madness. Now, in the finale, the camera keeps tight mainly on Ziegler’s face as she descends into madness. It’s stunning, but going to be much more difficult for Ziegler to take on the road and perform with Sia like she has previously for Saturday Night Live and at the Grammys with Kristen Wiig.
