But soon after taking the stage, Missy Elliott strolled out to join her. Halsey, clearly stunned, quickly shakes off the surprise, throws her arm around Elliott and keeps on working it.
On Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Mary Halsey - the woman who rose to fame after a video of her performing Elliott's "Work It" at a Rhode Island barbecue went viral over the summer - stopped about to talk about her new-found fame and then received the surprise of a lifetime when the rapper appeared on stage to perform the hit alongside her.
"It was a shock, I never expected this", said Halsey about going viral and getting a response from Missy for the original video. "Everybody wants to hear it".
"The song had come out in 2002 and it was really popular", she said. "Mary is one of the sweetest souls I met".

"First I want to thank Ellen for just being wonderful she will always be blessed because of her HUGE Heart!,' Missy said on Instagram following the show". Missy revealed that the mumbled lyrics right after the line, "I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it", are actually that same phrase - only reversed.
"And of course, I am her funky white ― Missy's funky white sister ― IN THE HOUSE!"
