On Thursday (April 25), dick clark productions and NBC announced that Paula Abdul will take the stage at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards to perform a medley of her biggest record-breaking hits as the show’s annual throwback moment.
This year marks the 30-year anniversary since Abdul's debut album, Forever Your Girl, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after a 64-week climb. That same year, 1989 through 1990, she had four singles grab the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100, which was the first time a debut album accomplished that feat. In 1991, Spellbound also hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with two more Hot 100 chart-toppers. In her decades-long career, Abdul has dominated the Billboard charts with six No. 1 songs and eight top 10s.
