Ellen DeGeneres may have been one of the subscribers as she invited Zony and Yony on her show. The girls held an endearing interview where the sisters described how they learn music video choreography, their latest birthday party and how people tell them apart—”I’m beautiful!” declares Zony while Yony says, “I’m cute!” Despite the girls not being 100 percent comfortable with English, the interview went off without a hitch thanks to a translator who proves that non-native speakers can certainly appear on U.S. television.

Are these girls the next Mary-Kate and Ashley? Ellen is responsible for shooting the young cover duo Sophia Grace and Rosie into superstardom. Can she send Zony and Yony to similar heights? The dancing duo will be back on ‘Ellen’ next week to perform another routine.
