Paula Abdul Performs ‘Straight Up’ on ‘Late Late Show’:

Paula Abdul dropped by The Late Late Show with James Corden this week to promote her upcoming Straight Up Paula! tour – her first in more than 25 years.

And along the way, she delivered a smoking hot performance of her classic hit, “Straight Up,” with stunning choreography.

The 56-year-old singer then sat down with Corden to talk about how her career began as an L.A. Laker Girl.

Said Abdul:

I didn’t go the conventional way. I had four of my girlfriends who taught these dancing cheerleading camps with me – they came up to me and literally were like [looks down], ‘Hi Paula, do you want to try to be a Laker girl with us?’ I was like, ‘Um, I don’t look like you guys.

Abdul said she was cut in the first round before even getting a chance to dance, and then she changed and used a pseudonym and went to audition again, and was cut again. She went a third time, which turned out to be the charm.
