Sia released her third music video Thursday, starring Dance Mom‘s Maddie Ziegler.

The “Big Girls Cry” video features 12-year-old Ziegler – who has become a fixture in Sia’s music videos over the past year – in her signature platinum wig delivering a powerful performance by only moving her upper body and using her facial expressions.

Ziegler has also starred in the Grammy nominee’s “Chandelier” video and even took the stage at this year’s Grammy Awards to perform the song with BridesmaidsKristen Wiig. Ziegler also recently danced alongside actor Shia LaBeouf for “Elastic Heart.”

“It’s just amazing. Being 12 years old, a lot of people think I’m a lot older and stuff, but I’m still very young and this is just the beginning for me,” Ziegler told PEOPLE at the Kid’s Choice Awards on March 28. “I’m so excited that Sia and Dance Moms has really started off my career. It’s really been amazing.”
