TAIPEI -- Taiwanese twins Zony and Yony appeared on the popular “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” for a second time on Tuesday, impressing the audience this time with a dance to Justin Bieber's “Baby.”
Sporting blue helmets, denim vests, purple tutus and colorful stockings, the 6-year-old sisters performed a new dance routine choreographed by the show's guest DJ and dancer Twitch.
DeGeneres praised the sisters' performance and gave the excited pair Hello Kitty gifts, including two Hello Kitty bicycles.
In an interview prior to the performance, DeGeneres asked the twins what their new favorite things are in the U.S., and they said “ice cream” and “pizza.”
When asked by the American comedian if they have watched American TV shows, the sisters answered “Ellen Show,” drawing laughs from the audience.
During the show, the host said she has been trying to brush up on her Mandarin lately.
“Hi. My name is Ellen DeGeneres and I like to dance,” she said in Mandarin to the girls, who taught DeGeneres how to say “you are beautiful” and “you are cute” in their own language.
The show also showed a clip of the girls learning to dance and having a good time with Twitch. They also taught Twitch how to say “bee” in Mandarin.
The show's clip of them dancing got over 170,000 hits within 14 hours on YouTube.
The twins became a hot topic in Taiwan after a video of them wearing helmets and tutus and dancing to South Korean girl group Crayon Pop's song “Bar Bar Bar” went viral on YouTube after being posted in February.
The video has since gained over 2.1 million hits on YouTube, and the girls have been invited to perform on several Taiwanese TV shows.
They appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show for the first time last week, reenacting the “Bar Bar Bar” dance from their popular YouTube video to a standing ovation from the audience.
