Paula Abdul made a surprise appearance at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, where the pop diva treated fans to a showstopping performance medley of her biggest hits.

Abdul, 56, showed that she has not slowed down a bit even as she celebrates 30 years since her debut album, Forever Your Girl, hit number one on the Billboard 200.

Clad in a black leotard, detachable fringe skirt, heels and a top hat, Abdul stunned audiences with her amazing dance steps. Abdul didn't miss a beat as she performed "Straight Up," "The Way That You Love Me," "Opposites Attract" (where she was joined on stage with an animated hologram of MC Skat Kat), "Cold Hearted," and "Forever Your Girl."
