Nicki Minaj Surprises Young "Super Bass" YouTube Stars


8-year-old Sophia and 5-year-old cousin Rosie hit it HUGE last week with their adorable and 100% on point YouTube cover of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" -- and yesterday, they got to sing it with Nicki herself!

The tutu-weaving girls make an appearance on today's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," where Minaj surprises them when a makeover, shopping spree and the chance to do a duet.

"Within five seconds of seeing this video I was calling everyone.  I was also receiving a billion emails.  Everyone was like you have to see this little girl," Nicki says of the YouTube video -- which now has almost 7 million views.

Re-watch it again below:

While Nicki sees nothing but stardom for Rosie and her little cousin, she still had some wise words for the duo: "I just want you to stay in school. Music is beautiful but stay in school, ok.  Put your books first and singing second."

Watch their performance together above -- Nicki's reaction to Sophia rapping some of the more mature lyrics of her song is pretty hilarious.

Has mommy not yet discovered that the phone works horizontally too? Too difficult to grasp?
