Mary tells Ellen that it all started at a karaoke competition back in 2003 when she sang a hit Missy Elliot song and her friends all really liked it! It became her go-to when she would sing karaoke, and this year at an annual karaoke Sunday event at her local park she sang it, and it got posted on social media where Missy Elliot saw it! Missy turned around and retweeted it! It quickly went viral, and then Ellen heard about it too!
Ellen invited Mary on the show and Ellen asked Mary to perform it, but little did Mary know Ellen had a surprise for her!
