They immediately won over the audience with their adorable English accents, obsession with rapping, and radically different personalities.

While Sophia Grace was loud and proud, Rosie was quieter, but no less vibrant.

Their viral fame was due to their love of singing Nicki Minaj songs, so of course, they were going to perform "Super Bass" while on Ellen.

While Sophia Grace spit bars, Rosie adorably bopped along and forgot to sing the words into the mic.

Some of them included the duo hitting red carpets to interview celebrities.

This mostly comprised Sophia yelling and singing at them while Rosie bounced excitedly. The best part was how happy each celeb seemed to be to meet them!

It stars she and a group of young women who aren't sure if they can achieve what they want to.

Once they find their "wings," they all have the confidence to shine.

"Lala" is highkey a real bop! It has catchy music, great vocals, and a great message for girls.

"I used to be/Afraid to stand on my own/Quiet cause they said so" transitions into a confidence booster...

With a sweet message!

It goes on:

"I couldn’t hold back that fire in the dark/Guess all those feelings started to spark/Now if I’m scared I know where to start, know where to start/‘Cause/Didn’t know I could fly tiI I found wings"
