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.

Mary went viral over the summer with her karaoke performance of Missy's 2002 hit single Work It, during which she dubbed herself the rapper's "funky white sister".

The video also landed Halsey on Ellen this Thursday, where she explained that she's been performing the song for over 13 years. "The reaction that I got was so positive that it became my go-to song". 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.

Now Elliott and Halsey have officially performed the classic song together.

A young Seattle team that lost in the first round the past two years and won just 15 games last season, obliterated the Mystics. The Mystics, on the other hand, didn't have a single player score in double figures, and only had two points off the bench.

Elliott later saw the video and declared Halsey to be her "funky white sister".

Sitting down for a chat, an overwhelmed Mary admitted: 'I can hardly just sit here, you've blown me away. "I put it out there and said "I want to go viral" but I never thought it would happen". Of course, DeGeneres had to ask Halsey to sing it for her audience.

'First I want to thank Ellen for just being awesome she will always be blessed because of her HUGE Heart!,' she captioned a video of her and Halsey. When I listen and she know all the words but the sound effects, she made the elephant noise and all of that...

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.
