Remember this little girl?

Here's what the little girl who danced in "Work It" and other Missy Elliott videos looks like now.

No, because I didn't have cable in high school and YouTube didn't start until 2005.

But you probably remember her! She danced alongside Missy Elliott in the music video for 2002's "Work It" and showed off some serious moves and attitude for a ten year old.

Her name is Alyson Stoner and now, she's all grown up.

Stoner tells BuzzFeed that she got the job after beating out 300 other little girls. Her favorite memory of performing with Missy in this and other videos?

To this day, I remember vividly Missy Elliott, Ludacris, and my grandma riding in a golf cart to set. My grandma went back to Ohio and told her bowling friends, "Guess what? I was riding to set with Missy and Ridiculous!"

Stoner just released a Missy Elliott tribute where she recreates some of the choreography from the original video with the original dancers.

If she could describe Missy in one word, she tells BuzzFeed that word would be "legendary."

Sounds about right.
