  • Missy Elliott Surprising Her 'Funky White Sister' on 'Ellen' Is Exactly What You Need to See Today

The video of Mary Halsey, who Elliott nicknamed her "funky white sister", performing "Work It" at a cookout went hella viral and everyone saw it, including Missy herself, according to Billboard.

Not long after, host Ellen DeGeneres asked her to perform her signature karaoke song, and midway through, Elliott crashed the performance to rap with her "sister". I learned, I read the words, I studied it, and the reaction I got was so positive that it became my go-to song.

Tottenham vs Liverpool: Alli, Lloris to miss EPL clash
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris risks losing the club captaincy over his drink-driving punishment. He said he was guilty of this situation and it's irresponsible. "He's punishing himself.

"It was a shock, I never expected this", said Halsey about going viral and getting a response from Missy for the original video. "Everybody wants to hear it". Halsey goes on to share that she's been singing Elliot's song for 15 years (explains the near-perfect rendition) and that she originally picked it back in 2003 for a contest and spent a lot of time studying the lyrics. While Mary was bringing down the house mid-song, Missy sneakily crept behind her and sang along.

Sitting down for a chat, an overwhelmed Mary admitted: 'I can hardly just sit here, you've blown me away. At first, Mary was stunned by the incredible guest appearance, but quickly recovered and the two of them proceeded to kill it together. The best part about the performance, however, is that Halsey had no idea the rapper would be joining her. "So when I listen, I'm like, she knows all the words, but the sound effects-she made the elephant noise, all of that". I thought it was just the most awesome thing.
