Nicki Minaj Surprises 8-Year-Old Super Bass Rapping Sophia Grace Brownlee on Ellen DeGeneres

Nicki Minaj Meets and Surprises Her Biggest Fan on Ellen

Ellen DeGeneres continued her streak of being the talk show host who makes dreams come true (post-Oprah days) by surprising an 8-year-old Nicki Minaj fan with an appearance from the music artist. Sophia Grace Brownlee from Essex has become a YouTube sensation thanks to a video recorded on a phone that features her (with her 5-year-old cousin, Rosie) performing Nicki’s hit “Super Bass.” She nailed all the super-fast rap lyrics and belts out the chorus and bridge with a powerful voice — all with the right amount of attitude and wearing a pretty pink princess dress. Ellen had the girls appear on her show and brought out Nicki, which saw Sophia running straight into the singer’s arms while the girls’ overwhelmed parents watched on from the audience. Check it out below, and hear Nicki’s advice to the girls at the end — we’re sure heaps of parents are pleased with what she had to say!
