The 15-year-old dancer, actress and model is in Auckland, set to appear as a special guest in Sia's Auckland show at Mt Smart Stadium on Tuesday night.

"Sylvie I was at mission bay when she was there and then I had to leave for tennis and then my friend saw her and then they got a photo omg and I missed it by 5 minutes and my friend even texted me omg nooooo ahahhahaha" another despaired.
