Starships shot to the sky over the weekend when 14 year-old Awra Briguela, a contender in the reality T.V. show Your Face Sounds Familiar: Kids, made a groundbreaking impression of “a bad bitch that came from Sri Lanka”.
Watch his performance here:
You won’t be faulted for taking another look just to make sure. It really is a 14 year-old impersonating Nicki Minaj. You can’t really blame Awra for not having Minaj’s distinct flow, but the signature sass he sustains all throughout his performance. Even up to the question-and-answer portion where he remains in character.
The performance is from the finale of the said show, where Awra ultimately won the grand prize, taking home a million pesos and a trip to Jeju, South Korea.
