Maria and Lady Gaga performed "Born This Way," the same song that propelled the young fifth grader to fame.
A report from TorontoSun.com said Maria was all confident as she addressed the crowd who were gathered at the venue to witness Lady Gaga and Maria perform live.
"I'm just really grateful for all of you. I just want to thank you for all of your suppport. And I'm actually from Winnipeg and I came over here to sing to you guys. And I want to say a shout out to all my fans and family in Winnipeg. And, after a while, I'll be up here again, so stay tuned!," Maria said.

Maria Aragon performs duet with Lady Gaga
YouTube singing sensation Maria Aragon made her dream come true as she performed a duet with her idol Lady Gaga at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada Thursday night (Friday morning in Manila).
Pictures of the concert showed the 10-year-old Aragon sitting on Lady Gaga's lap while singing the hit song "Born This Way."
Aragon shot to Internet celebrity status after her YouTube video covering Gaga's controversial hit caught the international star's attention.
The pop superstar posted Aragon's video in her official Twitter account and described the young Fil-Canadian as “the future." Aragon's YouTube video has been viewed at least 17 million times.
She also thanked Aragon for giving her song “a life.”
In their conversation over the phone last February 18, Gaga invited Aragon to sing with her on stage at her concert.
Aragon has appeared in the hit US talk show "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "Good Morning America."
Aragon arrived in Toronto early this week for Gaga’s concert, which is part of Lady Gaga's 2011 Monster Ball Tour.
The 10-year-old singer was accompanied by her parents, sister and brother Rojuane who posted Aragon's videos on YouTube.

Maria Aragon performs with Lady Gaga at the singer's concert in Toronto
Natuloy ang guesting ng Filipino-Canadian na si Maria Aragon sa sold-out concert ni Lady Gaga sa Air Canada Centre sa Toronto, Ontario kaninang umaga (Huwebes ng gabi sa Canada).
Si Lady Gaga ang personal na nag-imbita kay Maria para mag-guest ito sa kanyang show.
Shiny black pants, pink shirt, white hat, at orange monkey sa kanyang leeg ang suot ng 10-year-old Fil-Canadian singer mula sa Winnipeg, Canada nang umakyat siya sa stage para sa duet nila ni Lady Gaga.
Ang kanyang kapatid ang sagot ni Maria nang itanong ni Lady Gaga kung sino ang pumili ng kanyang outfit.
"That monkey is fabulous," ani Lady Gaga, bago nito sinabi sa audience na "I'm really excited that Maria is here today. She represents everything this song is about ... The next generation and the future and no more divisiveness."
Sa report ni Sheila North Wilson ng CBC News, napuno ng malakas na sigawan ang loob ng Air Canada Centre nang maupo si Maria sa tuhod ni Lady Gaga habang tinitipa nito ang piano at magkasabay nilang inawit ang slowed down version ng "Born This Way."
Ang "Born This Way" ang bagong single ni Lady Gaga na ginawan ni Maria ng cover. Napaluha si Lady Gaga nang mapanood niya sa YouTube ang video ni Maria na naging viral sensation dahil inilagay ito ng sikat na American singer sa kanyang Twitter account.
Muling napaluha si Lady Gaga pagkatapos ng song number nila ni Maria na tinawag niya na "Lady Maria from Winnipeg." Sinabi niya na kinabahan siya dahil "she's such a superstar" referring, of course, to Maria."
Dalawang beses na nag-perform si Maria sa concert ni Lady Gaga dahil umakyat uli siya sa stage para sa encore, ang up tempo performance ng "Born This Way" na sinabayan nila ni Lady Gaga ng pagsasayaw.
Ayon kay Maria, spontaneous at walang rehearsal ang dance number nila ni Lady Gaga.
Canada’s Little Lady Gaga takes Toronto
Imagine if a girl with a knack for music got to meet her favourite singer. And perform a duet with her. Before thousands of people, in a sold-out arena.
Maria Aragon will never forget her first trip to Toronto.
The 10-year-old Winnipeg native held her own at the Air Canada Centre with Lady Gaga Thursday night, matching the megaselling artist note-for-note on a slowed down version of Gaga’s new single “Born This Way.”
“I have a surprise for you,” Gaga told the crowd, welcoming Maria to the stage at 11 p.m., halfway through her two-hour set. Outfitted by an older sister in sparkling black tights, black leather jacket, pink hoodie, grey hi-tops and ivory hat with ever-present stuffed toy, Monkey the Monkey, around her neck, the girl perched on the bikini-clad Gaga’s lap for their duet.
Though Maria told the Star in an earlier interview “I actually don’t like putting on makeup, because it’s not me” she was wearing eyeliner and hint of blush.
With Maria handling the keys and Gaga working the pedals, the pair traded verses on the empowering song about being yourself. It was a touching moment that exemplified the dichotomy that is Gaga – a sensitive, intelligent lyricist who got teary performing with the child she invited to participate in a show rife with profanity, sexual innuendo and bloody demonic imagery (with at least one dismembered Barbie). She repeatedly describes herself as “fans first”, yet kept the audience – and Maria - waiting 85 minutes Thursday night and never offered an apology or explanation.
But, sigh, she did bring Maria back for the finale an hour later to sing on the original rendition of “Born This Way.”
Maria has been caught in a two-week whirlwind filled with limos and plane rides since a YouTube video of her singing that tune garnered Gaga’s attention and 17 million views.
