She may be the frequent recipient of favoritism on Dance Moms, but it is virtually impossible to hate Maddie Ziegler. The reality star is adorable, and more importantly, super talented. She is in the midst of a remarkable rise to the top of the entertainment industry, having recently rubbed noses with several major celebrities at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Several of the mothers featured on Dance Moms resent Maddie Ziegler, as she consistently scores opportunities not afforded to the other members of the Abby Lee Dance Company. Whether or not this is fair, it’s impossible to deny that Maddie is an amazingly talented young dancer. The reality star’s latest claim to fame is a Sia music video, which, in addition to garnering plenty of praise on Facebook, has achieved over 130 million views on YouTube.
It’s clear that Maddie Ziegler’s music video appearance is just the beginning. The dancer is busy making important industry connections, which are sure to lead to future opportunities. She recently chatted up several of today’s hottest celebrities at the MTV VMAs, including Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Lopez. Both Maddie and Abby were eager to share photos of this amazing experience on Twitter and Instagram. Abby posted a picture of Maddie and JLo, along with the following caption: “OMG!!! My #aldc member @madisonziegler1313 with the original dancer turned mega-star! We’re so blessed!”
