Ellen DeGeneres, Sophia Grace, and Nicki Minaj

Eight-year-old Sophia Grace and her 5-year-old cousin Rosie became overnight sensations when their YouTube cover of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” went viral, racking up over seven million views. The young girls appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to perform their popular cover before getting a surprise from the Harajuku Barbie herself. Sophia lept into her arms and screamed with excitement upon seeing her idol.

“Within five seconds of seeing this video, I was calling everyone I knew and I was also receiving a billion emails. Everyone is like, ‘You have to see this little girl.’ She blew me away!” said Nicki as Sophia’s father wiped away tears.

She foresees a bright future ahead for Sophia and also shared some advice. “We feel like we’re watching a journey that’s about to be amazing,” added Nicki. “Music is beautiful, but I want you to stay in school. Put your books first and singing second.”
