Willow Smith nearly melted the stage of The Ellen DeGeneres Show with her white hot performance today. The 10-year-old diva kicked off her first ever live set with an unreal, acapella version of Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In The World)” before diving into her smash hit, “Whip My Hair”. Jump below to watch in awe as the pint-sized songstress—backed by an army of dancing tweens—cranks the volume of daytime TV up to 11. And check out what Ellen gifted Willow with during her post-performance interview.

When asked whether she liked acting or singing more, Willow explained that singing is just “pleasurous” to her. She’s not just creating her own dance moves, she’s creating her own vocabulary! This girl is a paragon. Ellen then gave the rising pop star a bedazzled neck brace—just incase she ever injures herself while whipping her hair.
