Hauntingly Beautiful

This is a few weeks old, but I thought it was still worth posting. Despite the fact that I didn’t really like the mime (though I understand the ASL aspect impressed some) I was completely amazed by this performance of Chandelier on SNL. I am not all that familiar with Sia, nevertheless I was completely taken by the pure emotion in her voice.  I was kinda sad to find out the album version of this song is not as soulful.  I’ve also watched a few performances of this song since and found that like the original they are a little less intimate.  Seems like Sia has a knack for letting the performers shine while she takes a back seat.  However in this SNL performance she hit the nail on the head and gives us a hauntingly beautiful version of her hit.  Do yourself a favor and watch it. You won’t regret it.
