Missy Elliott met her "funky white sister" during a surprise appearance on "Ellen".

Halsey went viral over the summer with a video of herself performing the 2002 hit, which got Missy's stamp of approval.

Missy Elliott's "Work It" is not a song for the faint of heart: the early-2000s classic rap track has some seriously tongue-twisting lines. Just before that, Halsey explained that her "Work It" cover has been a work in progress for 15 years, and has become something of her specialty over the course of that time ever since she first performed the song in a contest in 2003.

Mary's face dropped but she managed to pull herself together to finish the song with her idol.

'I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER, ' Missy wrote when she saw the viral video. "Everybody wants to hear it".

His remarks fell flat in Puerto Rico where islanders are continuing to struggle to recover a year after the Category 4 storm. There are now fewer tourists to send away. "I wish I had more time to sort through and grab more of the sentimental items".

Halsey sat down with Ellen on Thursday to discuss her Elliott fandom. 'She straight killed Work It, sound effects and all.

It looks like the two long lost sisters are friends now - Elliott even pulled the "it's a video" while taking a selfie with Halsey. And although she knows what the lyrics mean, she "wasn't thinking about them" when she was singing them.

'First I want to thank Ellen for just being wonderful she will always be blessed because of her HUGE Heart!,' she captioned a video of her and Halsey.

In the end, not only did Missy give Mary a signed T-shirt, but Ellen also gave her a jacket that had the words "Missy's Funky White Sister" emblazoned on the back.
