The famous cousins made their final appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday. While there, they shared memories of their favorite celebrity encounters, recounted their first appearance, and reprised the very song that made them famous.
Sophia Grace – then 8, now 19 – and Rosie – then 5, now 15 – appeared on the talk show in 2011 after a video of them rapping to Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’ went viral on YouTube.
They ended up becoming regulars on the show over the years, co-hosting their very own segment ‘Tea Time’ and serving as her correspondents at red carpet events.
Explaining how the video came about, Sophia, 19, told DeGeneres: “As a child, I always used to play dress up. So did me and Rosie. I was dressing up, and Rosie’s favorite costume happened to be the Virgin Mary – you know, Mary and Jesus.
“I was round and Rosie was wearing the outfit. I kept singing Nicki Minaj all the time and my auntie, Rosie’s mom, was the only one who had an iPhone.
“She said ‘Why don’t we film it? Rosie, quickly get out of the Virgin Mary outfit and get into that outfit’.”
As children, Brownlee and McClelland starred in the 2014 adventure comedy “Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure.” They also guest-starred on the Nickelodeon sitcom “Sam & Cat,” which starred Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy.
Both Brownlee and McClelland shared they’re pursuing careers in music. Sophia Grace’s latest single, “Little Things,” was released alongside a music video on May 6.
Rosie, who uses her full name, Rosie McClelland, released her own single, “Safe In Your Love,” on Tuesday. The accompanying music video debuted at the same time.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show will air its final episode on May 26.
