Paula Abdul took a head-first spill off the stage at the Biloxi, Mississippi, stop of her “Straight Up Paula! 2018 Tour.”
E! News reported that the 56-year-old singer was performing her 1991 single “The Promise of a New Day” when she fell off the Hard Rock Live stage while singing and clapping. The stop is part of her first headlining tour in 25 years.
A concertgoer’s video uploaded to YouTube shows Abdul lean too far over the edge, falling down as some fans shout and gasp.
TMZ reported that, according to eyewitnesses, the singer quickly bounced back from the accident.
“She did not seem hurt at the time of the fall and still finished like a champ,” the fan who posted the video told People. “She stated she was a dancer, and falls and drops she has gotten used to over the years.”
The singer nor her reps have commented to media on the fall.
