Do you remember the little girls who shot to stardom back in 2011 after singing Nick Minaj on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” — well, one of them just turned 17 YEARS OLD…and you will never believe what she looks like now!!
Sophia Grace Brownlee, the brunette of the pair, turned 17-years-old over the weekend and shared a picture of herself on Instagram holding her birthday cake.
As you can imagine, she looks a bit different than when she was 8-years old performing on ‘Ellen’ — but you have to see this!
“17?” Sophia captioned the birthday photo.
Sophia Grace and her cousin Rosie McClelland shot to stardom after an adorable video of the duo covering Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’ went hugely viral on YouTube.
At the time, one of their biggest fans was Ellen Degeneres, who brought the then Sophia (8) and Rosie (5) on her talk-show and had them perform their smash hit.
The tiny duo was a smash hit on the show, and not long after their first appearance, Ellen was able to score a meet and greet with Nicki Minaj herself! One of the girls’ dreams came true and they performed with their idol.

After the girls went viral, they continued their careers in the entertainment business as actresses and YouTube influencers.
It also appears Sophia launched a successful clothing line in the UK called, Lolo London.
Fans of the ‘Ellen’ girls took to Instagram to show Sophia birthday love, with one saying, “Don’t seem that long ago when you were on Ellen singing ?xx”
“Happy birthday I watched you since you were on Ellen,” another added.
This isn’t the first time Sophia and Rosie have joined back up for an appearance. The duo dusted off their old plastic tiaras and joined forces for a video message to Ellen on her 60th birthday.
Rosie posted a birthday message to Sophia on Instagram, alongside an adorable photo of them backstage at ‘Ellen.’
“Happy Birthday to my amazing cousin @therealsophiagrace I can’t believe you are 17!!! Love you so much ❤️”
The two girls have remained close throughout the years and even celebrated birthdays together in the past.
“I’ve had the best birthday weekend ever and loved spending time with my beautiful cousin @therealsophiagrace,” Rosie wrote alongside a photo of them together last year on Instagram.
She continued, “Our bond will never be broke, our memories will never be forgotten and our funny little sayings and our own silly language will never get boring!”
This video never gets old!
