Last night we saw a whole host of A-listers hit the red carpet for the annual MTV VMAs, celebrating the best in music.
During the course of the evening, we watched some of the industry's biggest names bag some pretty huge awards as well as performances from several celebs, including Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, Lizzo, and, of course, Missy Elliott.
Elliott took to the stage after more than a decade to perform some of her most iconic hits. But when it came to one of her most famous singles, "Work It," the singer had a surprise in store for fans.
Seventeen years after its release, the singer recreated the classic music video by bringing out no other than Alyson Stoner, the little girl from the "Work It" video - and she still has the moves.
