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.

When Ellen introduced her idol, even the parents were overcome, 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.

And then they sang a duet. Her boom booming heart never slowed as she danced relentlessly through the commercial break.

    To bad it's age inappropriate. This little girl should have no idea who Nikki Manage even is.

      Agreed! She should be watching the Disney channel, not BET! Shame on the parents.

    I checked it out on youtube (thanks for the link, WCTV) and it's cute. Too bad the song is part rap.
