Paula Abdul falls off stage mid-performance, continues to sing

Paula Abdul Falls Off Stage During 'Straight Up' Tour

But ever the professional, the singer was soon back on her feet - and the stage - to finish her performance with nothing but a bruised ego to show following her fall.

There has been no word on whether the incident will affect Abdul's next scheduled concert - which is at Caesars Windsor on Thursday night.

As if nothing had happened, she continued to perform, seemingly unharmed.

To the relief and delight of her fans, she will continue her tour. But during her show in Biloxi, Mississippi, Abdul took quite the spill off the edge of the stage while high-fiving fans, one you can hear along with the audience's collective gasp below.

Abdul's success coordinating dance routines extended beyond working just with musicians as she was pegged to arrange dance sequences for a number of films including Can't Buy Me Love, The Running Man, Big, Coming to America, Action Jackson, The Doors, Jerry Maguire, and American Beauty. She took home the award in 1991 for Best Music Video, Short Form for Paula Abdul: Opposites Attract.

"I hit my head on the top of the plane and after that I was sidelined for seven years", she told US talk show host Steve Harvey. Her next concert will be on October 25 in Windsor, Ontario.

Not only that, Abdul got up and continued the show nearly immediately. In 2009, the singer revealed she had been hooked on prescription painkillers for over 12 years due to chronic pain from her years as a dancer.

Fans were audibly shocked after the fall, with one woman screaming after she went down.
