Paula Abdul Returning to the Stage With Headlining Set at Mixtape Festival
By Antoinette Bueno
Paula Abdul is back, y'all!
The 53-year-old pop star is set to hit the stage in Hershey, Pennsylvania, on August 6 at Mixtape Festival 2016, performing a full headlining set.
The "Straight Up" singer has teased fans with one-off performances in the past, such as her performance of "I'm Just Here for the Music" in 2009 on American Idol, and a medley of her most popular hits for Dancing With the Stars in 2012. Last July, she teamed up with James Corden on The Late Late Show to re-make the memorable music video for her 1989 hit "Opposites Attract."
Her most recent on-stage performance was on Lip Sync Battle in January, when she made a surprise appearance during Jenna Dewan-Tatum's rendition of her 1988 smash, "Cold Hearted." The two impressively danced side-by-side, clad in matching sheer lace tops and blue miniskirts.
But Abdul won't be the only beloved act at Mixtape Festival this year. New Kids on the Block, Boyz II Men, 98 Degrees, O-Town, Ryan Cabrera, and girl group Dream will all be performing.
Mixtape Festival tickets go on sale April 29 on Ticketmaster.
