She did it! Maria Aragon on Ellen.

Little Maria Aragon, Winnipeg’s worst kept secret since the general strike of 1919, was on The Ellen Show this morning.  Buzz around town is that she hit it out of the park with her performance.

Let’s have a look at the footage together shall we.

Budge over Bieber. Get out of the way Grayson. Here comes Maria Aragon.

Gaga’s all gaga over Maria Aragon.  The young Winnipeg YouTube sensation has apparently brought Lady Gaga to tears over her cover of the pop song Born this Way.  In a tweet to her millions of little monsters, the ever-changing chameleon,  Lady Gaga said “Can’t stop crying watching this. This is why I make Music. She is the future.”  The budding YouTube sensation has burned up the internet ever since.

Following in the footsteps of Justin Bieber and Grayson Chance may yet be in the cards for our ten-year old budding songstress.  Ace Burpee of Winnipeg radio station Hot 103 sent a limo to pick Maria up from school and deliver her for an impromptu session at the studio.

In a plea to gather Maria even more attention than the already large following Burpee appealed to daytime talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres to have the young lady sing for her and her audience on television.  Apparently Ellen has seen and approved.  In a tweet of her own she thanks Lady Gaga for showing her the now famous YouTube video.

The way things happen on the internet I think we can expect to see a performance from Maria on Ellen in the coming weeks.  Can a music contract be far behind?  Far fetched you say?  Don’t bet on it, Canadian teen heart throb Justin Bieber was discovered in exactly this way by Scooter Braun, and introduced to rapper Usher only a few years ago and look where he is now.

Following in the Bieb’s footsteps is young Grayson Chance snatched up and signed as the first artist under Ellen’s own record label elevenelevenGrayson is now on his first North American tour in support of his newly released single Waiting outside the lines and yet unnamed upcoming album.

If young Maria Aragon can get the support of Lady Gaga and Ellen DeGeneres in one afternoon can super stardom be far behind?  Only time will tell. Good luck Maria, do Winnipeg proud.

Here for your viewing and blogging pleasure. I give you Winnipeg’s own Maria Aragon.
