Mary Halsey, viral video star and Missy Elliot’s self-proclaimed “funky white sister,” appeared on the Ellen show yesterday to talk about her love for Missy Elliot karaoke.

While Mary is performing “Work It,” a voice from the crowd joins her. At first, it seems like they’ve started to play the lyric-filled version of the song to support her.


Soon after, Ms.Halsey makes a shocking discovery…Missy Elliot is performing with her!

All smiles, hugs, and fun, Missy Elliot and Mary Halsey finish performing together as Ellen cheers them on. Shots of Kristin Bell on the sidelines, smiling wide, make the moment even more amazing.
