Alyson Stoner, a.k.a. the little girl from Missy Elliott’s videos, is all grown up – and ready to blow your mind with a tribute video featuring her dance moves.
Set to Elliott’s hip hop hits, and featuring the rest of Missy’s old dance crew, too!
Stoner, then not even 10, appeared as a backup dancer in several of Elliott’s videos in the early 2000s, including "Work It" and "Gossip Folks," showing off her talent.
She would’ve been a viral sensation, had there been such a thing back then.
Well, she’s making up for lost time, and now at age 21, the musician and actress’ killer dance video and mash-up of Elliott’s hits has racked up millions of views.
As Elliott herself put it, linking to the video on her Twitter: “They grown up!”
Many fans were disappointed that Stoner wasn’t dancing with Missy Elliott during her Katy Perry Super Bowl Halftime Show cameo earlier this month.
Who knew she would soon have something planned, reuniting all the old Missy Elliott dancers after fans asked her about her absence at the big game.
“I literally received thousands of twitter shout outs and texts about why I wasn’t performing with Missy,” Alyson shared. “I didn’t think much of it at the time."
"But, I still stay in touch with a lot of the dancers from those videos and thought this would be a fun way to show people what I have been up for the past 13 years!”
The group shot the video with director Tim Milgram in a warehouse in downtown Los Angeles, with new moves by Beat Freaks choreographer Lindsey B.
It. Is. Awesome. Maybe even more so than this dance video we just saw …
