In August, a woman by the name of Mary Halsey went viral for her excellent karaoke performance of Missy Elliott's song "Work It". She united the duo for a performance of the Under Construction track, which will air on her daily talk show today (Thursday, Sept. 13).

In the interview the woman who is known as "funky white sister" on social media said: "It was a shock".

"I learned, and I read the words, and I studied it, and the reaction that I got was so positive that it became my go-to song", she explained to DeGeneres. While Mary was bringing down the house mid-song, Missy sneakily crept behind her and sang along.

Missy surprised Halsey with a signed custom T-shirt, while Ellen gave her a jacket inscribed with "Missy's Funky White Sister" on the back.
