Mary Halsey is well-versed when it comes to karaoke, especially when she gets her groove on rapping to Missy Elliott's 2002 hit, "Work It."

Even Missy Elliott herself was impressed with the woman's flawless rendition of the song that was recently posted online.

Enter Ellen DeGeneres, who had planned a special surprise for Halsey while she was a guest on her show.


Halsey has been nailing the lyrics to "Work It" at karaoke for the past 15 years, and when a recent performance from "Karaoke Sunday" was posted online, Elliott shared the clip. She gave Halsey props, and the clip went viral.

"I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER," Elliott said on her Instagram share, referring to Halsey's self-coined moniker.

Thanks to the video's endorsement by the iconic rapper, Ellen invited Halsey into the studio as a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday.

Overwhelmed at her sudden online fame, Halsey told Ellen, "It was a shock! I never expected this."

"I put it out there and said, 'I wanna go viral,' but I never thought it would happen.'"

She also never expected Elliott to join her in a rousing performance of "Work It" for the studio audience. But this is Ellen, after all, and her guests rarely leave without some sort of surprise.

Halsey took to the stage and addressed the audience over the song's intro:

"Hi everybody! I'm at the Ellen Show, first time exclusive. Yeah, yeah, yeah! Missy's "funky white sistah" is in the house!"

Halfway through the song, Elliott sneaked in from behind and rapped along with a shocked Halsey. But the amateur performer regained her composure and finished the song like a pro.

The two embraced as the studio cheered on the duo.


The interaction between the enthusiastic karaoke performer and her idol brought on all the feels.






Why is everyone so emotional over the performance? This person hit the nail on the head:


The pair got along post-performance like real sisters. The legendary rapper joked during the interview that maybe Halsey could be Missy Elliott's "hype-girl" for future concerts.

"I'll be your hype-girl! You just ask," said an enthusiastic Halsey.

If you live on this earth and you're fortunate enough to form long-lasting relationships with different people, chances are you'll know the pain of heartbreak. It's an unavoidable fact of life.

We are not guaranteed to stay with one person forever, as we were reminded once Redditor disturbance of mirrors asked the online community,

"People whose long-term relationship faded, what was the final straw that made you realize it was time to call it a day?"

There is always that "one." There is always going to be that person.

That person who you will always remember. And when they are the one who you regret losing most... they are the ghost that will haunt you forever.

I have a few escapees. I'll never know how it would've turned out. But that is part of why I'm haunted. I need to discuss....

Redditor u/AssistantNo1733 wanted to discuss all the times we've lost in love by asking:
