Missy Elliott Surprises Her "Funky White Sister" on Ellen

Missy Elliott performs onstage during the 2018 Essence Festival presented By Coca Cola- Day 2 at Louisiana Superdome

When Mary Halsey recorded a video of herself performing a cover of Missy Elliott's "Work It", she probably never thought this moment would actually happen. The ensuing clip went viral thanks to Halsey's intensely enthusiastic and accurate performance. But soon after taking the stage, Missy Elliott strolled out to join her. Halsey, clearly stunned, quickly shakes off the surprise, throws her arm around Elliott and keeps on working it.

Now Elliott and Halsey have officially performed the classic song together.

Her name is Lyn, and Halsey had just met her that day. Elliott ended up complimenting her "funky white sister" after the performance, claiming that she forgets the lyrics all the time while Halsey has them all down. Don't let anyone tell you that dreams don't come true.

"I learned, and I read the words, and I studied it, and the reaction that I got was so positive that it became my go-to song", she explained to DeGeneres.

Halsey also revealed the identity of the woman dancing and eating in the background of her viral video.

She was later gifted a signed t-shirt and a jacket embroidered with her famous nickname-Missy's funky white sister. "So when I listen, I'm like, she knows all the words, but the sound effects-she made the elephant noise, all of that".
