You can't accuse Sia of phoning it in during last night's Late Night With Seth Meyers. Well, technically you could, since the singer spent her entire performance lying face-down on a bunk bed. But, surely tapping Lena Dunham to do the work for her counts as some sort of oddly entertaining, weird stroke of mad genius?
Decked out in an all-white outfit and a bobbed blonde wig, it was the Girls star, not Sia, who commanded the stage as the newly engaged crooner's song "Chandelier" played. Mixing Elaine Benes dance moves with a few playful twirls and erratic Mime Academy gestures, Dunham gamely performed an interpretative dance that no doubt had a few late-night viewers scratching their heads. But, hey: art.
The skit ended with Dunham climbing into bed with her horizontally prone pal, who didn't so much as lift her head. Unless, of course, that was just another Sia look-alike and the real deal was singing live backstage. Who knows?
As wacky as her performance was, Dunham came off looking like a good sport. Anyone else tempted to hire this girl next time you're struck with performance anxiety or battling the flu/cramps/overwhelming malaise? (The Wrap)
