Paula Abdul to Perform New Single on Idol Results Show
Paula Abdul is going to be a different kind of vocal on Wednesday's American Idol results show.
The singer-dancer-judge will perform her new single, "I'm Just (Here for the Music)," live on the Idol stage, Abdul confirmed on Ryan Seacrest's morning radio show Tuesday. The single also made its world premiere on Seacrest's show. (Listen to the song here.)
Abdul said she was hesitant to take up the show's producers when they made the last-minute offer. "I wasn't sure if I was going to do it. Timing was of the essence," she said. "I put everything together on Saturday and rehearsed on Sunday. It was really good, and I am feeling good about it... There's a lot to see in less than three minutes."
No Doubt and Daughtry are also scheduled to perform on Wednesday's show.
This will mark Abdul's first live performance on Idol. During Season 7, Abdul debuted a music video for "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow" — which featured Randy Jackson, Simon Cowell and Seacrest — on the show.
