Love It or Leave It: Paula Abdul's Pre-Game Performance

Love It or Leave It: Paula Abdul's Pre-Game Performance

In case you missed it, Paula Abdul performed her new single "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow" before the Super Bowl. The performance came on the heels of Abdul's announcement that she plans to have a new, full album to release by Summer.

The performance isn't nearly as devastating as, say, Britney's VMA disaster, but it's not necessarily impressive, either — especially what with all the lip-syncing.

Check out the video and tell me: What do you think of Paula's performance?

I thought it was really good-the song is REALLY good. The performance could have been a little better but still great considering-and paula made janet-watch any documentary janet was a flop until paula polished her up I say if madonna can rock at her age then so can paula

Wowza, CaterpillarGirl. That was harsh.

she did ok. no one can dance like that and still do full vocals. it would just be a lot of panting, which is so not attractive.

Its not an age issue at all. Plenty of people over 40 have actual singing talent, writing abilities and people behind them guiding the best way possible around fame. Paula apparantly has no one. She came onto the scene riding on janet jacksons coat tails, touting her "choreographer" sign, she had one or two somewhat catchy tunes in a decade full of cardboard MTV stars. Her desperation to cling to the days of ET news bytes "paula abdul marries emilio estevez" and "Paula abdul choreographes the piano scene in BIG" is kind of sad. American Idol did her a favor by hiring her to "judge" talent and for that we all get to be subjected to her actually believing SHE has talent. Watching this, and her gigantic frozen smile trying to dance and lipsync at the same time is nauseating.

The song was okay but her dancing is not what it used to be. I don't like when pop stars don't know when to stop doing the 20 something type videos....Paula, Madonna, Janet. It just loks a little silly to me to see a 40-50 year old dancing around in a skimpy outfit. Their music should mature with them.

This was a billion times better than Britney's VMA disaster.. at least Paula tried-- to dance, anyway. Too bad she didn't try to sing.

OH.MY.GOD. What is she doing? The song is horrible, it sounds just like another of these light pop songs from wannabe starlets that we hear so much these days. And the choreography? Please. If she is going to step out of retirement as a performer, she needs to STEP IT UP. I coulnd't even get through the whole video, it just bad. It's a pity because I kind of like her as a judge.

i think she did an okay job. she danced her heart out, however, the bad lip-synching really affected the performances likability. Plus, I still don't understand why she didn't actually sing. If she can't sing anymore then don't try!

I like the song however the performance was too fake. I wish she would have included some live singing rather than all lip-sync. Wasn't the worst (Brit's) however definitely not the best.

and what I meant, was when she is not pretending to singing and is just being crazy wild on her Bravo series!
emei47 emei47 9 years
not awful… but I much prefer her when she is not lip syncing.
faerymagick15 faerymagick15 9 years
well, she was definitely lip synching through it. Nobody sounds that perfect live, well except maybe Daughtry (I have been to 2 of his shows...he is amazing live). The song is catchy and you can dance to it...but its really something I would expect from Britney Spears (if she were sane).

Are you kidding me? The voice doesn't even sound like what she used to sound like. I looked up her age; did you know she's only 45? I mean, too old to be in that outfit, but she seems older to me.

I really didn't care that her vocals were a little off, performing to canned music is performing to canned music. But she made her name as a dancer/choreographer. There's no excuse for her dance moves looking as sloppy as they did. I thought it was worse than Britney's VMA performance, honestly. The sheer desperation in trying to make a "relevant" performance made it much worse, I think.
