A ten-year-old Canadian YouTube star says she can't wait to join Lady Gaga onstage in Toronto.

Winnipeg-native Maria Aragon posted a cover of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" to YouTube, one of dozens of videos she's put online.

But this one exploded in popularity after Lady Gaga herself saw the video and posted a link on Twitter. Aragon has been on a whirlwind media tour ever since and her video now has more than 17 million views on the Google Inc.-owned YouTube.

She hit "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and ABC's "Good Morning America" to talk about being invited by Lady Gaga to perform at the Air Canada Centre on Thursday night.

Aragon says she hopes to make the most of the big moment and then she'd like to have her life get back to normal, at least just a little bit.
