Ellen DeGeneresmust be Santa Claus because every time Sophia Grace Brownlee and Rosie appear on Ellen, it's like getting an awesome present! The girls stopped by on February 20th to give us fans a little treat: a new Nicki Minaj cover! The eight-year-old rapper/singer from Essex initially rose to fame after her Nicki Minaj 'Superbass' cover sparked a viral frenzy.
Looking cute as can be, Sophia and hype girl Rosie set stage in new tutus (slightly resembling a Strawberry Banana Slurpee from 7-Eleven) and sang one of Minaj's more calm songs, "Moment 4 Life." Call me crazy but when Sophia raps I really hear elements of Nicki. Maybe Sophia has got some Roman in her. I certaintly hope not because I really don't want to see her at the Grammys offending Catholicism and manifesting dance moves that resemble cardiac arrest.
After their performance, the girls were once against surprised by Santa Ellen as she gave them a cotton candy machine! To be honest, I think Sophia and Rosie were more excited about the cotton candy machine than they were about being at the Grammys!
What are your thoughts on Sophia and Rosie's new cover? Should someone give them a record deal already or what?
