'Ellen DeGeneres Show' Becomes a YouTube Talent Agency for Kid Stars (VIDEO)


Sohia Grace on Ellen DeGeneresEarlier this week we showed you the video of adorable Sophia Grace, 8, and her cousin Rosie, 5, who absolutely nail Nicki Minaj's song "Super Bass." If you haven't watched it yet, do so immediately -- it's incredible. And we weren't the only ones who thought so. Not so surprisingly, after seeing their YouTube video for herself, Ellen DeGeneres found the duo, flew them over from Britain, and featured them on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, today.

Is this sounding sort of familiar? Remember what happened with Greyson Chance ... Ellen spotted his video on YouTube, featured him on her show, then he skyrocketed to fame. She was so taken with him that she even started her own record label -- eleveneleven -- just so she could sign him herself. So could Sophia Grace be the next Greyson Chance?

Based on her appearance on the show today, I don't know why not. Whether she's singing or not, she is the bubbliest, most adorable, infectious little girl I've ever seen. Just listening to her talk is hysterical, and her American accent (check it out around 00:41) is the best. If only all little girls had -- and kept -- that sort of confidence and uninhibited expression of passion. And her singing isn't just cute, it's good too. Watch her perform here with her idol, Nicki Minaj, who Ellen surprised her with.

Even Nicki is blown away by her talent. "Seriously, we are watching a journey that's about to be amazing," Nicki told Ellen. And I don't doubt it. The girl has talent, charm, and passion. Ellen knows it when she sees it. Maybe she'll start collecting new pint-sized YouTube finds like she does houses.

Do you think Sophia Grace will go on to be a star with the help of Ellen?

Sophia Grace was born a star, she honestly doesn't need anyones help.

Oh paleease.... it's not even worth watching. There's nothing cute about this whole thing. Maybe the parents should take care that the kid does something else besides watch MTV all day. These are the brats that are supposed to work for our retirement funds... we are doomed.

What a rude remark, ScorpioDee. Grow up and quit relying in the next generation to take care of you.

Megan McRae

Her personality is incredible! She definitely has star potential!

Courtney Paige Neale

I truly believe we are watching the beginning of an incredible journey for this lil girl!! What a lil super star!!!!

Scorp... ScorpioDee

Just stop what, Courtney??? Saying what I think? Yeah, right.

And @Crystal - I am paying taxes now so the elderly can retire...I work... I also have to have private retirement insurance to secure my life when I am that age that they are now. So I am not allowed to expect the same from our children? And you will not expect YOUR government to pay social security to you? Or will you give it up voluntarily? Who do you think you're fooling???

And still I don't think there is anything cute about that. MY opinion...
