Missy Elliott and Alyson Stoner appeared together on stage at the VMAs for a performance of “Work It” that you’ll be watching all day on repeat

During Monday night’s MTV Video Music Awards, Missy Elliott, iconic artist and keeper of the hearts of women of a certain age everywhere, accepted the Video Vanguard Award and also, delivered an absolutely unreal performance highlighting some of her greatest hits. Of course, no Missy Elliott one-time exclusive is complete without “Work It” and instead of just singing it on her own with a crew of regular backup dancers, the rapper brought out a special guest — Alyson Stoner, who was just a kid when she appeared in Elliott’s videos for both “Work It” and “Gossip Folks.”

And for a few minutes, suddenly, things were good again.

In case you want to cut right to the chase and see Stoner’s unreal moves, here’s a clip of her dancing her heart out. She’s only gotten better with time and we’re extremely here for it.

Stoner is now 26 years old, which made her just about nine when she appeared in “Work It” back in 2002. In case you forgot how positively insanely talented she was even as a kid, here’s a little refresher.

The reacts to Stoner’s appearance were quick to roll in, and it’s official — the internet can agree on something and it’s that Alyson Stoner is epic.
