Paula Abdul may perform at the Super Bowl

Paula Abdul - Opposites AttractIs it just idle rumors, or is "the nice judge" really in talks to join Tom Petty and perform at Super Bowl XLII on February 3? It certainly looks like Paula Abdul may just put on her dancing shoes and try to show Mr. Simon Cowell that she really can sing ... and dance. Adding credence to the rumors are the facts that the Super Bowl is on FOX this year, and that Abdul is supposedly already working on the video for her duet with fellow judge Randy Jackson from his upcoming Music Club Vol. 1 album.

Abdul, 45, hasn't had a major album release since 1995 (Head Over Heels), nor a #1 hit since 1991's "Promise of a New Day." Simon has given her constant ribbing for her lack of a career in the past ten-plus years, challenging her on numerous occasions to shut up and dance (or sing) on American Idol, but she's yet to meet his challenge. Considering that Abdul has kept herself in incredible shape, and more than likely can sing as well as she ever did, she shouldn't have any problem pulling off a good performance (so long as she watches what she puts in her cup). However, if she fails, you can expect the ribbing on the judge's panel to be ruthless from here through the end of Idol's seventh season.

Sing as well as she ever did is right. She was the "Original" synth girl, like Brittney and all the other manufactured pop artists. She can dance though, so lets see some of that instead.

That's an ominous title: Music Club Vol. 1. It portends a Vol. 2, 3 and onwards. It will join the other music series abominations like Now That's What I Call Music, and Kidz Bop.

NOW was actually fairly good in it's first couple iterations, but that hasn't been true in a while, unfortunately.

I wonder how much FOX is going to have to pay Paula to get her on the stage again.
