Missy Elliott performs with her "funky white sister" on "Ellen"

Missy Elliott performs with her

The 47-year-old rapper took Halsey by surprise when she stepped on stage for a duet performance of the 2002 hit single.

Last month Mary Halsey of Rhode Island posted a Facebook video of herself doing a karaoke version of Missy Elliott's "Work It". Halsey got an added boost when Elliott herself praised the woman's performance on Instagram, calling the woman her "funky white sister". Of course, DeGeneres had to ask Halsey to sing it for her audience. "I put it out there and said "I want to go viral" but I never thought it would happen".

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

Self-proclaimed "funky white sister" Mary Halsey went on "Ellen" Thursday to perform her viral rendition of "Work It", which gained steam online in August after Elliot tweeted Halsey's hilarious performance. Though Halsey was starstruck, she quickly regained her composure and finished the song with Elliott's arm around her.

"First I want to thank Ellen for just being awesome she will always be blessed because of her HUGE Heart!,' Missy said on Instagram following the show".

Later, Halsey got a gift from the Ellen show: a rhinestone-encrusted jacket that read "Missy's funky white sister" on the back. "I thought it was the most awesome thing". "And so, I heard my rap going backwards, and I said, 'Keep it, and I'll make words around that part.' And that's what made me say, 'Flip it and reverse it'".
