17 thoughts I had while watching Sia cover Nat King Cole‘s “Unforgettable” on Ellen, from someone who doesn’t watch Ellen:

  1. ellentube is a thing.
  2. “Unforgettable” is the theme song to Finding Dory? Oh boy, we’re about to reach some WALL-E level tenderness here. The original is such a beautiful ballad about finding someone you think is unforgettable and having that person feel the same about you (“That’s why, darling, it’s incredible / That someone so / unforgettable / Thinks that I am / Unforgettable, too”). This never happens in beautiful (good) love songs. Maybe Dory, who is always forgetting, will find someone worth remembering? Break out the tissues.
  3. Ellen and Sia are friends? That’s good. That’s better than Ellen being like, “And now, my acquaintance who’s just kinda meh, Sia!”
  4. Good call on keeping the strings – keep it nice and traditional instead of trying to add any funky “beats” or “grooves” or whatever.
  5. Where can I buy her bow tie? Do you think she makes them? Does an intern make them? Does she buy them at the store?
  6. Do you think that wig ever gets itchy?
  7. WHERE IS HER DANCER PERSON
  8. Sia is so great. She’s a strong singer who doesn’t need a gimmick to carry a tune, though there’s no doubt she’s used her looks and stage persona to enhance her art. I still can’t get over her recent Coachella gig.
  9. Do we think Sia is a member of the Faceless Men? Does she worship the Many-Faced God? Does she chill with Jaqen?
  10. Imma let you finish, but…
  11. That dress.
  12. Sia and Lady Gaga should do a standards album together.
  13. She’s going on tour with Miguel? Oh boy, there’ll be lots of, ahem, coffee on that tour.
  14. Ellen is as tall as Sia with really high heels. Ellen is tall.
  15. Thanks, Citibank and Live Nation?
  16. EVERYONE GETS TICKETS TO SEE SIA AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL FOR JUST SHOWING UP TO ELLEN WHAT WHAT WAHT I NEED TO GO TO ELLEN NOW
  17. Excellent pun at the end, Ellen.

Check out more Sia on her website here.

  1. With an outfit designed by Lady gaga’s people, she is more like the Others.
