Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard of Missy Elliott's "funky white sister" by now. She united the duo for a performance of the Under Construction track, which will air on her daily talk show today (Thursday, Sept. 13).

Unfortunately, Lyn was not IN THE HOUSE when Halsey performed on "Ellen". & she has always used her platform to make others dreams come true like Mary Halsey who I must say is one of the sweetest souls I've met! "And I said, I could do that song - maybe I could try".

"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.

"It was a shock, I never expected this", said Halsey about going viral and getting a response from Missy for the original video.

Finally acquainted, Missy and Mary shared a warm embrace after the performance before Ellen got in on the action for a group hug. Though Halsey was starstruck, she quickly regained her composure and finished the song with Elliott's arm around her.

Now Elliott and Halsey have officially performed the classic song together. When I listen and she know all the words but the sound effects, she made the elephant noise and all of that...

Missy later posted a video (which Funky White Sister Halsey initially thought was a picture, just like every auntie) of the two new BFFs backstage.

"Instead of it just being an empty time, I chose to fill it in".
