Ciara & Missy make the AMAs 'Level Up'

Ciara and Missy Elliott sure know how to own a stage.

The two powerhouse performers took the 2018 American Music Awards by storm with their remix of Ciara's megahit "Level Up." The divas' performance was literally next "level" (see what I did there?) as it featured a boatload of dancers, a killer drumline, and fireworks (yes, actual fireworks!). Did we mention the ladies style game was also on point? Ciara wore a plunging white leotard and matching over-the-knee boots, while Missy sported her usual, but still amazing and high fashion, patterned sweatsuit.

CiCi also gave the AMAs a dose of her new single, "Dose," which she performed after Missy departed the stage. However, one of the most memorable moments from the high-energy performance came while Missy was still present and cameras showed her "funky white sister," Mary Halsey in the audience. For those who don't know, The Rhode Island native went viral this summer when she shared a video of her coming for Missy's hip-hop throne as she effortlessly performed "Work It." In just a few weeks, the video racked up millions of views as viewers flocked to the clip that featured Mary performing the classic track with an animal horn in one hand and a mic in the other during a cookout.

Mary got the surprise of her life last month when her "sister from another mister," surprised her on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. While Mary, who was a scheduled guest on the talk show, performed Missy's 2002 hit "Work It" (the song that made Mary a viral sensation), Missy made a surprise appearance midway through her performance to rap alongside her "sister."
