It was only a matter of time before that shofar-toting “Work It” karaoke performer got surprised by Missy Elliott.
In August, a woman by the name of Mary Halsey went viral for her excellent karaoke performance of Missy Elliott’s song “Work It.”
Elliott later saw the video and declared Halsey to be her “funky white sister.” Of course, when these things happen, there’s only one final destination to go: Ellen.
“I have to sit back, I can’t even tell you,” Halsey said to Ellen DeGeneres of seeing Elliott’s tweet. “It was a shock, I never expected this.”
Halsey hit the stage for her signature performance only to be surprised by Elliott, who walked out to join her. Despite showing obvious shock, Halsey didn’t miss a beat and kept on rapping.
Later, Halsey got a gift from the Ellen show: a rhinestone-encrusted jacket that read “Missy’s funky white sister” on the back.
All that’s left is for Halsey to collaborate with Halsey.
