Maddie Ziegler's popularity after appearing in Sia's "Chandelier" video might have pushed the 11-year-old dancer to consider quitting "Dance Mom" as she admitted that the show opened doors for her.

In Australia's TODAY show, Maddie Ziegler was asked by entertainment editor Richard Wilkins about the "Dance Mom" reality TV show.

"The TV show started when I was 8 years old, and everyone was really young and we've been doing it for a few seasons now and I've gotten a hang of it," Maddie said.

"I'm used to having all of the cameras around. I've gotten so many more opportunities from this and just because of it everyone now knows me on the streets and is stopping me to ask me for a picture or an autograph," she said.

Naya Rivera of "Glee" saw the video and was blown away by Maddie Ziegler. "Ok my jaw is completely dropped at how good this @Sia "chandelier" video is," she tweeted. That girl Maddie is beyond talented. Best video ever."
