Shelby Mitchusson, a sign language interpreter from Austin, filmed a video of herself signing Eminem's 2002 hit "Lose Yourself" last year in an attempt to get an interpreting job with the Austin City Limits festival.

But Mitchusson got a surprise when her video went viral eight months later, getting over half a million views this week.

The internet sensation shows Eminem-worthy amounts of attitude while she signs the lyrics.

"I have a deep love for interpreting music and would love to share more as I am always interpreting music," she wrote on YouTube.

The music-loving interpreter's other videos show her signing songs at concerts, including one where Sarah McLachlan seems to be performing behind her.

In response to the tons of comments asking her to upload more signed versions of songs, Mitchusson replied, "I have been very busy in my personal life but I am going to upload more videos soon."

"As always your feedback is wanted (Deaf people/ASL users/ASL Interpreters)!" she added.

BuzzFeed has reached out to her for comment on her newfound viral stardom.
