As announced Monday, world famous choreographer and recording artist Paula Abdul will perform a groundbreaking number exclusively created for this season's final "Macy's Stars of Dance" performance on "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars the Results Show," Tuesday, Nov. 20 (8 until 9:01 p.m.), on the ABC Television Network. The dance number will be to Abdul's new single, "Dream Medley," a medley of four of her No. 1 hits, available for purchase exclusively on iTunes on Tuesday, Nov. 20.
Abdul has been awarded and celebrated both in front of and behind the camera as a groundbreaking choreographer, producer, songwriter, performer, designer, actor and businesswoman. The two-time Emmy Award winner and multi-platinum recording artist has continued to find new ways to entertain her loyal fans for more than 25 years.
Beginning her career as a Los Angeles Lakers cheerleader, Abdul quickly became widely known for "re-inventing" cheerleading. During her time with the Lakers, Abdul was recruited by the top music artists, directors and producers in the world to choreograph their music videos, tours and films. Her most celebrated work in choreography includes her Emmy-winning contributions to "The Tracey Ullman Show" and her own performance as an artist opening the American Music Awards, as well as an Emmy nomination for choreographing The 62nd Academy Awards.
After releasing her first CD, "Forever Your Girl," Abdul became a multi-platinum singing sensation. She has won multiple musical awards, including a Grammy, seven MTV Video Awards, two Emmy Awards and two People's Choice Awards, and has sold more than 60 million records worldwide. After saying goodbye to "American Idol" in 2010 and serving as executive producer and creative partner for the reality-competition series "Live to Dance," she returned to network television in the U.S. launch of "The X-Factor."
More recently Abdul has become one of the top public speakers in the industry, touring the country to bring her own passion, drive and work experiences to the lives of those walking the halls of companies throughout America. She has recently signed on with Avon and is the official spokesperson for Fembody Nutrition.
