If you have yet to catch the video of Sophia and Rosie Grace singing Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" you have missed out on some amazing internet cuteness, and some of the best rapping by an eight year old I have every seen.

The the British cousins' a cappella video went viral in October and has been viewed over 860,000 times. This has brought them a growing fan base in the US, and several guest spots on TV.

This week the duet made an appearance on the Ellen Show, this time rocking out and rapping to "Turn My Swag On" by Keri Hilson. With some original lyrics of their own, Sophia's belting voice, and Rosie's back-up dance moves, the new video has surpassed the original with 2,802,897 since it was posted on February 8th.

Ellen surprised the girls with news that the duo will be covering the red carpet at this weekend's Grammy Awards.

Check out the new video and the original after the jump, and make sure to look for the girls this Sunday on the red carpet.
