YouTube star Sophia Grace Brownlee celebrates 18th birthday a decade on from her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
Can you believe it’s been 10 years since YouTube sensation Sophia Grace Brownlee sang her little heart out on The Ellen DeGeneres Show?
Aged just eight years old, Sophia and her cousin, Rosie McClelland, became internet stars after their performance of the Nicki Minaj song, Super Bass, went viral. After the duo from Essex, England, became loved the world over, host Ellen DeGeneres then invited them to be regular correspondents on the talk show.
But now, one decade on, Sophia is all grown up and celebrating her milestone 18th birthday.
“18 💕My golden Birthday,” she wrote on Instagram.
Naturally, 14-year-old Rosie was a part of the festivities as they celebrated the occasion with family and friends.
“Happy 18th Birthday for yesterday!” she wrote in a belated Instagram post while sharing some photos from the event.
“Forgot to post these 🤩 Had the best day celebrating with you and love you so much 💗 👩🏼🤝👩🏻.”
The cousins have always been super-close. In fact, when DeGeneres discovered them back in 2011, Sophia Grace wouldn’t go on the show unless Rosie was by her side. And their bond has only strengthened over the years.
“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! Thank you for all we have shared, love you,” Rosie once gushed of her cousin on Instagram.
Since appearing on the program, Sophia Grace and Rosie have starred in movies, written books and recorded music.
In 2019, Rosie dropped her debut song titled ‘LaLa’ about finding herself and her place in this world, and this year she released the new track ‘Throw It Away’.
