People are calling it a “concert performance of a generation.”
Sia is easily one of the best pop musicians today, a fact she further proved with her spectacular Coachella ’16 performance.

Headlining artists aside, it was Sia’s performance festival punters were raving about on the last day of Coachella (weekend 1). The enigmatic and slightly eccentric looking Australian songstress delivered a full 35 minute set of her newest and oldest hits. This was Sia’s first major performance in five years!
With 13 magical songs in her arsenal, her own personal contemporary dancer Maddie Ziegler, a posse of celebrity dancers and her flawless vibrato, what she created seemed to enthral everyone present. While she stood there and sang, dancers emoted her most deepest emotions flawlessly and mirroring moves taking place on the screen behind. If this isn’t deemed as phenomenal performance art, we don’t know what is.
At one point Sia, delved into an acoustic rendition of ‘Titanium’ to which the crowds sings along quite sombrely, actually feeling the emotions that make the lyrics.
The press has been having a field day trying to explain this fantastic performance in words. A reddit thread emerged (top trending of course) aptly titled, “Sia just gave the concert performance of a generation.”
Watch the amazing performance below, before the police of interwebs take it down!
