Missy Elliott performs with her

It was only a matter of time before that shofar-toting "Work It" karaoke performer got surprised by Missy Elliott.

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.

The feel-good moment happened during the chorus of the track as Missy came out from side-stage, prompting Halsey to put down the microphone for a moment before continuing with her new friend.

On Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Elliott had the opportunity to meet her super fan from Rhode Island.

"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.


"It was an accident in the studio", she said. "Everybody wants to hear it".

Halsey hit the stage for her signature performance only to be surprised by Elliott, who walked out to join her.

Elliott said that she was immediately impressed with Halsey.

And not only did Missy meet Halsey; she performed with her!

"And of course, I am her funky white ― Missy's funky white sister ― IN THE HOUSE!" "So when I listen, I'm like, she know all the words, but the sound effects - she made the elephant noise, all of that ..."
