Puddles sings Sia

CLOWNTIME IS OVER(DUE): Pop's own Pagliacci, Puddles, returns with a stirring rendition of "Chandelier" by RCA's Sia. The tall and somber clown previously favored us, you may recall, with a nuanced take on Lorde's "Royals," but here he finds new recesses of sadness and reserves of joy. Meanwhile, Sia's single just charted at Pop and jumped #46-25 on Shazam's USA Top 100. The provocative, fascinating official clip (starring 11-year-old Dance Moms phenom Maddie Ziegler) has garnered about 16.5m views and is Top 5 on the iTunes video chart. (5/28p)
