Remember Alyson Stoner? You might know her as the mischievous ringleader in the Cheaper By the Dozen 2003 remake—or maybe you recall her showing off her formidable hip-hop dance skills in rapper Missy Elliott’s videos for “Work It” and “I’m Really Hot.” (Stoner was a preteen for both, unbelievably.)
She’s recently surfaced again, thanks to a tribute video she made for Elliott in the wake of her ridiculously good Super Bowl performance. Stoner's dance moves as a 10-year-old were no fluke—her video proves that she still has fierce dance chops. The choreography is a mix of Hi-Hat’s original stuff from the Elliott videos, along with some of Stoner’s own moves and contributions from a few others. It’s a fun little mash-up: There’s a dancer who plays Elliott, as well as someone who plays “Little Alyson.”
The video ends with a short, sweet speech by Stoner to Elliott, thanking her for making it all possible. You gotta love a dancer who doesn’t forget her roots!
