Maddie Ziegler‘s date for the iHeartRadio Music Awards 2017 was dancer Lilia Buckingham. 

Ziegler stunned onlookers on the red carpet, donning a sophisticated yet edgy Giamba dress. And equally stunning was her date for the night, fellow dancer and close friend, Lilia Buckingham. 

Her date, on the other hand, wore the For Love and Lemons Amelia Strapless Mini dress. Buckingham was also seen with a matching red clutch.

Ziegler made time to post a photo with her date on Instagram after the event and left a sweet caption under it, “my beautiful date !! love you so much lil”. Buckingham, 13, also took to her Instagram to show love for her “beautiful date” and posted a photo of the best friends holding hands.
