Check Out Kristen Wiig's Insane 'Chandelier' Grammy Dance Moves
With Sia performing at last night's Grammys, something weird was to be expected. Kinda like how Sia's normally seen in wearing black veils, giant mop wigs or paper bags where her face should be.

But with last night's performance of her hit song "Chandelier," Sia took "weird" and rocketed it off to a faraway dimension, populated only by bizarre dancing mannequins.

"Chandelier" began after a brief introduction by Shia LaBeouf (incoherent as always) and opened with regular Sia dance partner Maddie Ziegler and another woman in a room full of musty brown clutter.

Kim Basinger got rave reviews from other sites for wearing this 20s-style suit that would have looked awkward on a man attending a film premiere, let alone Kim Basinger. The dark red lipstick and slicked-back hair just add to the creepy flair - she looks like The Joker.

Perhaps Kristen Wiig's gown would be on the edge of good fashion at the premiere of some indie flick or even the Met Gala, but at the Anchorman 2 premiere it si...

Miley Cyrus actually covered herself for once, but I don't love those odd sleeves. They look like giant suction cups, or maybe from an outfit in a Dr. Seuss book.

Lisa Lampanelli looks like she lost some weight, which is great, but she also shaved the side of her head. Perhaps it's part of her Miley Cyrus impression?

Wiig told Harper's Bazaar she and Bridesmaid writer Annie Mumolo were given the chance to start work on a sequel, and the two immediately turned it down. "It wasn't a hard decision. We knew during the first one, this was it. We would have made a lot of money if there was a second one, but that's not my goal in my creative life."

Bridesmaids was a runaway hit when it came out in 2011, grossing almost $300 million in theaters and helping to catapult Melissa McCarthy in...
