Take a look at Tiffany & Co.'s new ad campaign and you might recognize a familiar face. The one and only Maddie Ziegler has partnered with the luxury jewelry brand and the resulting video is pure brilliance. The glamorous collaboration reveals Maddie's candid thoughts about life as a dancer and the work ethic that's gotten her to where she is today.

As if we needed another reason to get pumped for summer, Maddie Ziegler is going to be on an episode of ABC Family's "Pretty Liars." I repeat: MADDIE ZIEGLER IS GOING TO BE ON "PRETTY LITTLE LIARS"!!!!

Hmmm...wonder what pretty little lies Maddie's got hiding behind those beautiful blues. (Photo by Lucas Chilczuk for Dance Spirit)

The "Dance Moms" starlet/Sia muse/Dance Spirit cover girl/all around boss at life caught the acting bug on the set of her first music video with Sia, "Chandelier." Maddie's shown us time and time again she has what it takes to portray dark, dramatic (and some may say disturbed) characters—and it looks like her role on "Pretty Little Liars" will keep with the haunting theme.

On Monday, Maddie and "Pretty Little Liars" stars Troian Bellis and Ashley Benson Instagrammed some spoiler pics from the show's set, and let's just say, Maddie Z. is lookin' pretty spooky.

Here she is with Bellisario:

 

Not quite sure what's going on here, but Maddie's simultaneously cute and terrifying:

 

 

And here's Maddie showing off her zombie-chic costume with co-star Benson:

 

 

But the spoiler that really got us going nuts is a 'gram Maddie posted with THE TRAVIS WALL. Apparently, he choreographed a delightfully creepy routine for her to perform on the show. Maddie Z. + T. Wall? I think that deserves a #lifemade.

 

 

The episode, "She's No Angel," is set to air sometime in July. WE CANNOT WAIT. (But, alas, we must. #sigh)

As soon as Maddie Ziegler walked onto our photo shoot set, we understood why the 12-year-old is already a dance superstar. Watch Maddie and her sister Mackenzie light up the camera with every shot—and show off their goofy sides.

They say three is a magic number, and that's definitely the case when it comes to Maddie Ziegler/Sia collaborations. That's right, folks: We've officially got a trilogy on our hands, and Part 3 is the most intense yet.

Today, Sia released the official music video for "Big Girls Cry," which features over three minutes of Maddie-closeup. Because the camera rarely zooms out, she has to captivate the audience with only her face, hands and upper torso. Sure, that's not uncommon in music videos, but for a dancer who's used to using her whole body to convey a story or emotion, it could be quite a challenge. Of course, Maddie was more than up for it. She delivered a performance using every inch of her face, leaving us with a bizarre, haunting sensation. You just can't look away.

Those piercing blue eyes, though.

She's swung from the chandeliers, she's battled it out in a cage with Shia LaBeouf and now, we can say she's experienced the hysteria of a broken heart. Well...we're hoping Maddie hasn't actually experienced this kind of heartbreak, but with her acting skills, you'd never know. Bravo, Maddie!
