She revealed that she learned "Work It" in 2003 to compete in a karaoke competition then, and soon it became her go-to song.

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.

Towards the end of Halsey's performance, the 47-year-old hip-hop artist surprised her fan by strutting on to stage to sing the rest of her 2002 hit with her.

'First I want to thank Ellen for just being awesome she will always be blessed because of her HUGE Heart!,' she captioned a video of her and Halsey. Halsey was no exception, and took the host up on her invite, Entertainment Weekly reports. "Everybody wants to hear it".

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. But halfway through the song, everyone was in for a shock when Elliott herself joined Halsey onstage to finish it off.

Later, Halsey got a gift from the Ellen show: a rhinestone-encrusted jacket that read "Missy's funky white sister" on the back. "When she first said, 'Missy's funky white sister, ' I'm like, 'Who is this?!'" said Missy.
