Missy Elliott met her long lost sister on Ellen — her funky white sister, that is.

Mary Halsey's karaoke cover of "Work It" went viral last month. Declaring herself "Missy's funky white sister," Halsey rapped a flawless rendition of the song during a karaoke barbecue. Inexplicably holding an antler, she nailed the "ti esrever dna ti pilf, nwod gniht ym tup" while another woman danced behind her with a plate of food. 

Missy Elliott herself praised the cover, tweeting, "She straight killed 'Work It' sound effects and all. I love it." 

Halsey rapped a cover on The Ellen Show, antler and all. Halfway through her incredible performance, Missy Elliott joined in, completely surprising Halsey.

Halsey, being the funky white sister that she is, barely missed a beat and resumed rapping with her idol. 

According to her interview with Ellen, Halsey said "Work It" has been her go-to karaoke song for the past 15 years. And although she knows what the lyrics mean, she "wasn't thinking about them" when she was singing them. 

I want to thank Ellen @theellenshow for just being AMAZING May God Bless you because of your HUGE heart & you have always used your platform to make ppl smile like Mary Halsey who is 1 of the sweetest ppl I’ve met! thank you Ellen😘 Mary u are a gem!🤗❤️”My Funky White Sister”

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 u are a gem!" Elliott tweeted.

Can it get any cuter than this?
