Recently, Mary Halsey went viral after her version of Work It by Missy Elliott hit the web. Well, you know you've made it when you get to The Ellen DeGeneres Show and that she did! But what she wasn't expecting, was for Missy Elliott to be on the show as well!
Halsey said she learned the words to the song for a contest in 2003 and has been performing the song ever since. The video was filmed at Karaoke Sunday at Goddard Park in Rhode Island, with the hopes of wanting it to go viral but not knowing if it actually would.
Of course, Ellen being Ellen, she had Halsey perform the song on the show and to her surprise, MISSY CAME OUT TO PERFORM WITH HER!
Missy Elliott saw the video and said "I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER" which was fine with Halsey because now it's her favorite way to introduce herself. They even gave her a jacket that says "Missy's Funk White Sister" on the back.
This is something Halsey will probably never forget. If you haven't seen the original video for yourself you can watch it below!
