UNDATED (CNN) - A famous pop star is getting a run for her money from a young singing sensation who is wowing the world.
When 8-year old Sophia Grace Brownlee hit YouTube, she was a hit doing her version of the Nicki Minaj song, "Super Bass." OK, so maybe Nicki Minaj had a few more pelvic thrusts but Sophia Grace's version has gotten around 9 million views on YouTube and landed the little girl from Essex, England on The Ellen Show.
Ellen, "Is that your favorite singer?""We love Nicki Minaj so much. We want to meet her so much."
That's funny, because Nicki Minaj tweeted the same thing about her.
"I have to meet her. She is a superstar."
A superstar with a sidekick, her cousin Rosie.
"Rosie makes me feel confident...awwwww...cause I have someone with me."
But Sophia Grace's heartbeat really started running away when Ellen introduced her idol. Even the parents were overcome, with dad asking for a tissue.
As if meeting her idol wasn't enough, Nicki promised Sophia Grace a shopping spree. She also got a wig so she could look like Nicki.
Then, they sang a duet. Her boom booming heart never slowed as she danced relentlessly through the commercial break. Even her sidekick couldn't get her to kick it down a notch.
