Sia's Chandelier may have been despicably robbed of the 'song of the year' award by Sam Smith's Stay With Me at tonight's Grammys, but we did at least get another sensational performance of it at the ceremony, which saw Bridesmaids' Kristen Wiig step into the nude leotard.

Playing the grown-up counterpart to Ziegler's dancing waif, Wiig wore a bobbed wig and recreated the video's surrealist dance moves, sliding around a dishevelled apartment set.

Ziegler and Wiig playfought during the performance, which saw Sia, as ever, singing with her back turned and Shia LaBeouf introduce it with a short reading.

LaBeouf has also danced with Ziegler in the past, appearing in the music video for Sia's 'Elastic Heart'.

Other artists who performed at the ceremony included Kanye West (twice), Rihanna, Beck, Coldplay, Arianna Grande and Lady Gaga.

Katy Perry gave a special performance as part of Obama's It's On Us anti-rape campaign, and Kim Kardashian arrived dressed as Nature Boy Ric Flair.
