Paula Abdul Falls Off Stage Head-First During Concert, Singer Says She Is Not Injured [VIDEO]
Paula Abdul took a fall during a concert in Mississippi on Saturday, but was left uninjured.
The 56-year-old singer and former choreographer and American Idol judge fell head-first into the crowd at the Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, Mississippi while crooning her 1991 song “The Promise of a New Day.”
A fan who recorded the moment on a cellphone reportedly 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.”
Abdul later tweeted that she was fine after her fall, and thanked fans for their support:

Abdul has suffered from health problems before. In 2004, she was diagnosed with reflex sympathetic dystrophy.
