YouTube sensations turned Ellen Degeneres mini-interviewers Sophia Grace and Rosie are back. The adorable British duo have taken a quick break from having tea with celebrities like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus to do a cover of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop.”
While Sophia Grace and Rosie’s are adorable with their enthusiasm, I can’t help but want my own tiara and tutu after watching that video. Well, any video that they’re in. I would wear it to the grocery store, to work— really anywhere. They’re fashion-forward, righT?
Remind me again why she doesn’t sing regularly on Glee? Jane Lynch stopped by Conan O’Brien and proved that her musical talents are just as strong as her acting chops when she did an impromptu rendition of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” for the talk-show host.
Sophia Grace and Rosie better watch out. She may not be as cute, but her skills are just as good.
Sophia Grace and Rosie never cease to make me laugh and then cringe a little bit. Sophia Grace is as adorable as she is slightly annoying. She seems to be getting better at singing…who knows where she will be in 10 years? Girl is hitting those high notes! I personally enjoy watching Rosie being Sophia’s personal doo-wop girl.
Watch them perform here
British munchkins and Ellen regulars Sophia Grace and Rosie pretty much exploded at their most recent interview describing how it felt opening for One Direction. The ladies were dressed in pink frilly dresses and their trademark tiaras during their performance of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.”
“It was so good, cause I’ve dreamed of being a pop star on a stage since I was two and a half or three,” said nine-year-old Sophia Grace.
They also revealed to Ellen who their fave members of One Direction are. While Rosie likes Zayn because of his fuzzy hair, Sophia Grace likes Harry because he’s a good bloke and waved at her and Rosie in the crowd.
The two young girls who become Internet celebrities after posting a video of themselves singing Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” in 2011, which has since gained 39 million views. At the end of the interview, they surprised Ellen with a special present — paintings they created themselves!
Watch it here
While watching these videos, I felt my self-esteem slowly deteriorate into nothingness. I’ll be turning 20 soon, and there are many things that these kids can do that I can’t even dream of. Here are just 10 of the many crazy-talented kids out there.
1. Nolan Gould
You probably recognize Nolan from the television show, “Modern Family.” But after watching this video, I learned that the 14-year-old has already graduated high school and is studying at a college level. Um, when I was 14 I was bopping around my bedroom to various selections of “emo” music.
2. Lennon and Maisy
These young sisters have graced the youtube world with their lovely voices, earning millions of hits. Lennon, 12, and Maisy, 8 have won the hearts of the interwebz with their beautiful covers of songs like “Headlock” by Imogen Heap. The duo will be featured tonight in an episode of Nashville — their pretty voices included!
3. Matty B
This nine-year-old recorded a cover of “Ice Ice Baby” with the legend himself, Vanilla Ice. If that isn’t enough to describe how awesome this kid is, then I don’t know what else is. Matty B is a young rapper from Georgia, who has gotten attention from some pretty big names (Dr. Phil, anyone?) He’s also covered One Direction. Enough said.
Since being introduced to Sophia Grace and Rosie after seeing their rendition of Nicki Minaj’s “Superbass”, I’ve been in love with the adorable duo ever since.
On Friday’s episode of ‘Ellen”, the two girls invited Justin Bieber to have tea with them while they interviewed the singer on his favourite games, his fears and even his favourite kinds of junk food.
From the video, we get to learn the finer details of the Biebs’ personality. Turns out, his favourite cake is ice cream cake while his favourite cookie, to both Sophia Grace and Rosie’s dismay, is oatmeal raisin.
These girls show some serious chops in being television personalities. If they don’t choose to go ahead with their musical ambitions, I’m sure Ellen will have a permanent show lined up for these little divas.
Few people are more excited to see Nicki Minaj than the tutu-wearing Sophia Grace and Rosie. The two girls, who are from the UK, covered her song Superbass on YouTube and eventually on Ellen’s show.
The Pink Friday rapper had some colourful advice for the two young girls: “Pink is your color. Pink is gonna keep you happy for the rest of your life,” she said. “Pink is gonna give you power, energy, and the girliness that you need. You wear your crown and you’re a queen.”
Minaj also talked about having a tough time going unnoticed and
surprisingly it’s the worst when she’s driving in her pink car. She said the paparazzi are sometimes so aggressive they’re willing to have an accident. “A girl literally cut through traffic and made a U-turn just to put her car infront of my car, so she could take a picture,” she said.
Minaj also addressed shutting down her Twitter account (in a spontaneous British accent) and about Ellen being in one of her lyrics.
