Sophia Grace Brownlee and Rosie McClelland are all grown up!

The cousins, who are from Essex in the United Kingdom, returned to Los Angeles to perform on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, 11 years after their first viral performance of Nicki Minaj's 'Super Bass'.

Of course, a visit from the duo would not be complete without a showcase of their dulcet tones – and they definitely delivered. Watch their performance above.

The now 15-year-old McClelland and the now 19-year-old Brownlee were only aged five and eight when their 2011 cover of Minaj's 2010 rap hit went viral on YouTube.

Their video has since been viewed over 54.8 million times, and after they hit publish on their first video, they appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' daytime talk show – now in its final season – to perform the song again.

"You might be the most memorable people we've had on the show," the 64-year-old talk show host told the pair during their recent – and final – appearance.

After their first appearance 11 years ago, McClelland and Brownlee were officially hired by DeGeneres as co-hosts of their very own segment, Tea Time, and as correspondents at red carpet events. They have appeared on the show over 25 times.

Brownlee said her favourite memory from their global stardom was when she got to interview Drake at the Grammy Awards.

"He ate some of our candy. I'm such a big fan of him now," Brownlee said.

Her second most-loved memory was when she got to meet Minaj, during the duo's first appearance on the show, where they also performed with the rapper.

"Them doors over there, when they opened, I literally looked in every single direction but the one that she was coming out of," she said. "And when I finally saw her it was just chaos. And it was great."

McClelland's favourite memory, meanwhile, was when she got a kiss from Justin Bieber at the Teen Choice Awards.

"Obviously, at that time I was like, 'Ew, a boy! He's kissing me on the cheek,'" she laughed.

"And now, I'm like, 'Oh my god, I'd let Justin Bieber kiss me on the cheek again!'"

Both cousins are now singers in their own right, having released their own original music.

The final episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show will air on May 26.
