Pop legend, Paula Abdul announced her first Las Vegas residency Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl at Flamingo Las Vegas beginning Aug. 13, 2019.
"It's a real thrill to have the iconic Flamingo Las Vegas welcome me to their stage," said Paula Abdul in a statement. "After 30 years as an entertainer, I can't think of any better place to showcase my love for performing than Las Vegas."
The multimedia experience will highlight Abdul’s three-decade long career through song, dance and stories. She will sing and dance her way through her greatest hits and even reveal some behind-the-scenes fun during American Idol.
"Paula Abdul is a phenomenal talent with a celebrated history of record-breaking hit songs, and she has garnered a long list of extraordinary accomplishments since hitting the world's stage," said Eileen Moore, president of Flamingo Las Vegas in a statement. "We are extremely excited to welcome Paula to our family of superstar entertainers, and we are certain "Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl" will have guests on their feet and dancing in the aisles."
After first making her mark as a Los Angeles Lakers cheerleader and choreographer, Abdul switched her focus to music. Her debut album, Forever Your Girl, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 1989, completing a record 64-week climb to the top. The album also generated four No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles in 1989-90, a first for a debut. Abdul is the first female to ever receive four No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 singles off a debut album. One of those singles, “Straight Up,” is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Just a few years later, her 1991 LP “Spellbound” also topped the Billboard 200 and created two more Hot 100 No. 1’s.
Her music eventually led her to American Idol as a judge for aspiring musicians. As she gained a new generation of fans Abdul added a No. 2 hit, “Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow,” on the Dance Club Songs chart in 2008 with then-fellow judge Randy Jackson.
