Paula Abdul's Pre-Game Lip-Synch

2/3/2008 6:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If you just missed Paula Abdul's Super Bowl pre-show performance, where she mouths sings "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow," rest easy, TMZ has got your back.


The sugary pop presentation was pretty much a predictable mess -- including a Britney circa 1999 routine, cheesy background dancers and absolutely no actual singing. The best part wasn't even Paula -- it was spotting Randy Jackson in the background -- playing bass! Hello, Tito!

Where in the hell was Simon during this pre-taped madness?!

It wasn't a live performance! How could it be a live performance when she was then on the red carpet with Ryan Seacrest and not out of breath at all?! I thought she did good for her age!

seriously    

That was awful. She didn't even pretend to sing!! People got all over Brit for her horrible job at the VMA's but this was 10 times worse. At least Britney somewhat danced and actually moved her lips.


Why is she famous again?

Sarah Silverman SUCKS!    

I’d like to hear Paula sing live so we can judge her true singing ability. I think the criticism of Paula and Randy is fair. I find it very hypocritical of Paula and Randy to stage this kind of performance considering their jobs on American Idol are to find truly talented singers. They make people sing a cappella in order to even get a shot on their show. In my opinion it undermines their credibility as judges. It’s all about making money.

TO ALL THE HATERS ON THIS FORUM: It says so much about someone when in order to feel good about yourself you have to put somebody else down. I thought Americans were positive people who applauded people who show willpower and engage in "the pursuit of happiness", but I guess I was wrong. Judging from a lot of the hateful statements on this forum, the majority are petty people with nothing better to do than dissing people that are more successful than themselves. What happened to applauding people that overcome pain and bounce back and keep striving with a positive attitude? GO PAULA - you're forever our girl!!!

i hate to break it to all the haters out there for paula, but jordin and alica key's where both lip syncing to there songs watch there performances you can see at some point there mouth doesn't match the words,

so they all do it. and she hasn't performed in over 15yrs so i give her credit and balls cause i could never do that.
and i liked the performance the women is still in shape

I'm well aware her "plane crash" was over 15 years ago. She's always crying about her pain, but the pictures show she is doing very well-thanks to Vicodin!
