1. Learn Lady Gaga's lightning-hot new song 'Born This Way.'
2. Post a video of yourself playing said Gaga tune to YouTube.
3. Rack up your views and wait for Ellen DeGeneres (and Gaga herself!) to tweet about you.
4. Smile big.
Since covering Gaga's already-massive hit 'Born This Way' on YouTube, 10-year-old Maria Aragon's video has received more than 200,000 hits since it was posted Wednesday. Not bad for an after-school activity.
And it looks like Mother Monster herself approves of Maria's rendition of the individuality anthem. "Can't stop crying watching this. This is why I make music. She is the future," Gaga wrote on Twitter, sharing a link to Maria's YouTube video. See it here:

In 2010, DeGeneres created her own record label, eleveneleven, and signed tween web sensation Greyson Chance, whose debut album is due out later this year. We have a feeling we're going to be seeing Maria on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' any day now.
