Watch Missy Elliott Surprise Her 'Funky White Sister' on 'Ellen'

Watch Missy Elliott Surprise Her 'Funky White Sister' on 'Ellen'

Missy Elliott's "Work It" is not a song for the faint of heart: the early-2000s classic rap track has some seriously tongue-twisting lines.

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. Halsey said she's been singing the song for 15 years, and calling herself Elliott's "funky white sister" for the same amount of time. I learned, I read the words, I studied it, and the reaction I got was so positive that it became my go-to song. "Everybody wants to hear it". "Mary is one of the sweetest souls I met".

Ellen DeGeneres, as you know, has love for viral stars, and often invites them to her show.

During the second chorus of the song, a hyped-up Missy walks on stage as Halsey stops rapping as a result of her shock.

Hurricane Florence slightly increases in speed
Governors in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia have declared states of emergency in preparation for Florence. She and her husband would decide Tuesday morning whether to evacuate their family of two kids and a dog, said LaRoche.

She was later gifted a signed t-shirt and a jacket embroidered with her famous nickname-Missy's funky white sister.

Thankfully, that's not the end of the story for Elliott and Halsey's interactions.

"First I want to thank Ellen for just being unbelievable she will always be blessed because of her HUGE Heart!,' Missy said on Instagram following the show". 'She straight killed Work It, sound effects and all. "I thought it was the most awesome thing".
