Yes, at Coachella, Leo was hanging out with you-know who and lots of young celebs showed off their cute boho outfits. Katy Perry hauled it around with bf Orlando Bloom, Arnold and kids ran into Sly and his family. Taylor Swift had a cute haircut and her man, Calvin Harris was the headliner of the third and final day. But it seems like Sia’s performance is all anyone can talk about. The Australian hit the stage Sunday night for her first full concert set since 2011 and wowed with a spectacle.
She performed a 13-song set packed with her many penned hits, including Rihanna’s Diamonds, Cheap Thrills, Bird Set Free, Elastic Heart, and Chandelier. A troupe of celebrity performers and dancers, including the ubiquitous Maddie Ziegler, actors Kristen Wiig & Paul Dano, plus comedian Tig Notaro. As she has in so many music videos, Zielger served as the singer’s emotional stand-in. Dano was a sort of customer service rep, answering phone calls between songs…
Billboard wrote in a review,
“The oddity of seeing something closer to performance art than pop music onstage during Coachella was captivating for thousands, but seemingly confounding for just as many.”
The L.A. Times said,
“At a Coachella defined by surprise pop-star cameos, Sia’s performance Sunday night cleverly flipped the script.”
On the Coachella subreddit, the top-trending thread was titled,
“Sia just gave the concert performance of a generation”
with words like “unique”, “magic”, flawless”, and “impeccable” being thrown about in the comment section.
