Who better to discover the next Maddie Ziegler than Maddie Ziegler herself? The 13-year-old dancing wunderkind from Sia’s music videos, including “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart,” joins the judging panel for the upcoming season of So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation, which will feature contestants between the ages of eight and 13. Before linking up with Sia, Ziegler had appeared for years on Dance Moms and done TV stints on shows like Drop Dead Diva. Anyway, the point is: She’s a pro! And she’ll able to say really cute things like, “Well, when I was your age …”
She knows she can dance.
