A trio of adorable Toronto dancers made their big screen debut on Ellen this month.

Eight-year-old Khiyla, 9-year-old Naima, and 10-year-old Ajanae had been dancing together for a few months before their choreographer Brandon Bizzy Owusu got an idea.

Owusu and his girlfriend Bruna Soares make dance videos on their YouTube channel, and had the idea to make an Ellen video incorporating the talented young girls.

In the video post, which is a fan tribute to Ellen, Owusu wrote, “We are such HUGE fans of Ellen, can you tell?”

Soon after, Ellen’s team saw the video and on February 7, Ellen posted it video on her Facebook page with the caption “more of this, please.”

And of course, being as adorable and as talented as they are, the girls found themselves in LA and on the Ellen Show.

“The experience overall was amazing,” said Owusu. “The girls said that it felt so unreal that we were actually all flown out to LA to be on the Ellen Show. The girls also said that speaking to Ellen on the show felt really normal to them and almost as if they knew Ellen for so long. She made them feel very comfortable as soon as they got on the show.”

And the Torontonians did look comfortable on set. In fact, they nailed their routine.

Check out their perfect Ellen performance.
