Paula Abdul Falls Head-First Off Stage At Mississippi Concert

Fans screamed as the 56-year-old singer tumbled into the crowd.

The Promise of a New Day” turned into a dangerous night for Paula Abdul.

The 56-year-old singer and dancer was performing her 1991 hit when she fell off a stage head-first during a concert Saturday at the Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, Mississippi, according to outlets.

A fan who posted video of the accident told People

“She did not seem hurt at the time of the fall and still finished like a champ. She stated she was a dancer, and falls and drops she has gotten used to over the years.”

Some fans could be heard screaming as Abdul dropped off the stage with a thud.

Abdul, who churned out six No. 1 Billboard songs in the late ’80s and early ’90s, hadn’t addressed the tumble on social media as of Monday morning.

A rep for the performer later said in an email to HuffPost: “Paula is fortunately not injured and was able to continue the show. She is excited to continue the tour.” 

Her Straight Up Paula! tour was scheduled to resume Thursday in Windsor, Ontario.

Here’s another look at the mishap.
