The former Nirvana drummer released a song for the 10-year-old internet sensation on Monday, in which he referred to her as the “number one supergirl” and the “best drummer in the world”.

It comes as part of an ongoing drum battle which began between the two via Twitter last month – with Nandi taking home the victory in round one.

In a video reacting to the song, Nandi was left jumping with joy thanks to the gesture and has pledged to record her own cover.

Nandi’s dad John Bushell said the family cannot believe the response from Grohl and added Nandi hopes to record her response to him over the weekend.

Mr Bushell said: “This is an incredible time for Nandi, she is absolutely over the moon.

“She just can’t believe it, she is ecstatic and is a very, very happy child right now.”

No stranger to fame, Nandi has previously performed alongside Lenny Kravitz and has received acclaim from rockstars worldwide.

Last year, she appeared on hit US talk show the Ellen DeGeneres Show and has previously featured in John Lewis and Argos Christmas adverts.

Her YouTube channel, where she has posted covers of hits by Green Day, System of a Down and more, has 168,000 subscribers and almost 20million views.
