American talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres has invited two talented Filipino "bathroom singers" to guest on her popular “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

Rin and Roxanne of "Rin on the Rox," who have become a YouTube sensation, are best buddies who do cover songs inside their bathroom.

"Recently, I found these two singers on the internet. These two girls are singing in the bathroom. So they are  fantastic. If you are watching right now, please, please come on the show if you are watching. We have a wonderful bathroom here... But seriously, you are great. So please, please come on the show if you would like to," DeGeneres said in a recent episode.

Rin or Erin Paula, 20, and Rox or Roxanne, 21, are based in California, USA. They dream of having a career in singing.

In Rin's MySpace account, she said in one post:  "Our dreams are actually coming true."

They also said in their YouTube channel 'hiphoprox' that they are proud to be Filipinos.

“Yes, we both are Filipino, but as for Roxanne she's half-Filipino and half-white,” Rin said.

They also belied they are twins, saying that they are just best of friends.

"Ha! ha! No, we are just best friends with the same passion--music," Rin added. In particular, they both love R&B music.



Rin and Rox have become a YouTube hit for their version of popular songs. They always express appreciation to their fans and supporters who watch their videos, give comments and requests.

"Thanks for all the love and support. We will try to fulfill everyone's song requests. We are just really pressured for time. So we will get to it. Keep supporting..loving...commenting..and subscribing. Thanks a lot! We love you," Rin said.
