The 8 stages of accepting Sia's bizarre performance on Graham Norton

Wow. Just wow.

YOU MAY NOT have heard of Sia just yet, but you’ve certainly heard one of her songs.

The Australia hit-maker has written songs for the likes of Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Beyoncé, as well as appearing on David Guetta’s Titanium and Flo Rida’s Wild Ones. You might also know a few of her own hit songs–Chandelier and Breathe Me.

The only thing is, she doesn’t want to be famous, so is hesitant to show her face when she performs. Last night, she appeared on Graham Norton but performed with her back to the audience and let a dancer do the entertaining for her.


People were confused and went through various stages, eventually leading to acceptance of this new unfamiliar popstar territory.

1. Shock


2. Disbelief

3. Anger


4. Concern

5. Uncertainty


6. The turn around


7. Defence

8. Ultimate acceptance
