Paula Abdul fell off stage and kept on performing, but where was MC Skat Kat?

Paula Abdul, on the third date on her 26-city Straight Up Paula! Tour, had a little whoopsie during her show at the Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, Mississippi on Saturday night. She strutted her way right off the stage in a move I’m sure she didn’t choreograph.

While performing her 1991 hit “Promise of a New Day” in sky high heels, Paula must have underestimated the amount of stage she had left and slipped right off the edge, to the gasps of audience members. Thanks to the fact that people can’t put their damn phones away for two seconds to enjoy a show right in front of their face (don’t get me started on that), we have video of the whole embarrassing incident.

The fan who shot the video told PEOPLE that Paula took the incident in stride and continued performing. “She did not seem hurt at the time of the fall and still finished like a champ. She stated she was a dancer, and falls and drops she has gotten used to over the years.”

Paula’s rep told TIME that she’s doing just fine and has no plans to cease touring due to the incident, asserting that, “Paula is fortunately not injured and was able to continue the show. She is excited to continue the tour!”

Who knew that Paula Abdul lives by the adage “the show must go on.” You go, girl. I’m glad you’re okay. Now, WHAT HAPPENED TO MC SKAT KAT? We were promised he’d be on the tour. Did he fall off the stage too? I need answers.

    She was just playing hide and seek with her true intentions

    Oh, shit- you went there with Skat Kat! I saw a snippet of Cold Hearted Snake the other day on some show and …. ok. Paula Abdul can dance like HOT DAMN, but her singing… it’s… not great, is it? Like in her prime, I mean. She had cool videos like that one with Keanu Reeves where they were like dating or something but the one of them died I think, and of course Cold Hearted Snake and her *songs* were cool, like Straight Up and some other ones. But her singing? Maybe not so much.
    Is it me? It might just be me.

      No, it’s not just you. I was the biggest fan when I was a teen but even I had to admit something sounded really off when she sang live on a TV program. Her dancing has always been terrific though.

    Ouch! Glad she’s alright

    I read somewhere that she had serious back problems so I’m hoping that fall didn’t aggravate it. Good luck to her.

    Hmmm she seems off and lethargic. She can barely dance now. She’s no JLo for sure.
