A homemade video uploaded to YouTube last month recently went viral, attracting almost 11 million views and landing its star — 8-year-old British girl Sophia Grace Brownlee — a segment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week.
In the video (below), Brownlee performs a fierce a cappella version of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” as her younger cousin Rosie Grace McClelland provides cute background vocals and even cuter dance moves.
Ellen Degeneres flew the girls to be on Ellen and surprised them (above) when she brought out the blonde-and-blue haired Minaj, who later performed “Super Bass” with the pint-sized duo.
“I’m the second Nicki Minaj,” yelled Brownlee after Degeneres plopped a wig on her head.
Degeneres often features launched a record label and immediately signed YouTube sensation Greyson Chance, who was 12 at the time and became famous for a middle school performance of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.”
