Sophia Grace wowed everyone — even Nicki Minaj — so much with her brilliant cover of ‘Super Bass,’ Ellen DeGeneres had her on her show Oct. 12 and even had a big surprise for her!

Less than a month ago, eight-year-old Sophia Grace‘s parents posted a video of her rapping to Nicki Minaj‘s hit single “Super Bass,” and now the clip has more than 7 million hits and her fan base ranges from Justin Bieber to Nicki Minaj herself! In fact, Sophia and her cousin Rosie, 5, have garnered so much attention, they got invited to be on The Ellen Show Oct. 12 and Ellen DeGeneres had a big surprise for them…Nicki Minaj!

“Within five seconds of seeing this video I was calling everyone. I was also receiving a billion emails,” the rapper said. “Everyone was like you have to see this little girl. She blew me away. I have a hype man and you have a hype girl.”

After Sophia performed, Nicki gave her some advice. “I said, superstar,” she complimented her. “Seriously we are watching a journey that’s about to be amazing. You are incredible. I just want you to stay in school. Music is beautiful but stay in school ok. Put your books first and singing second.”

Do YOU think Sophia will be one of the youngest rappers of all time?
