The two pint-sized Essex girls responsible for a YouTube cover of an explicit R'n'B song watched seven million times have had their shock of their short lives thanks to Ellen DeGeneres.

Cousins Sophia Grace Brownlee, eight, and Rosie Grace McClelland, five, became online sensations last month when their version of Nicki Minaj's Super Bass was picked up by viral websites including the Huffington Post and The Insider. The girls appeared on Ellen today in the pink tutus and tiaras they wore in their YouTube video, charming host DeGeneres and her studio audience who were either laughing, crying or both.

They performed their web smash — Sophia is the rapper and singer while Rosie provides "confidence" — before letting out piercing screams when Minaj surprised them on stage.

Sophia jumped on Minaj yelling "You're here! You're here!"

Earlier in the show, the duo expressed their love for the outlandish singer, despite not knowing what her songs mean.

"We. Love. Nicki Minaj," Sophia told DeGeneres.

"We want to meet her sooooo bad… Has she sat on this chair?"
