Paula Abdul ended up getting closer to her fans than she would have hoped during a show in the U.S. at the weekend.

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

"(Paula) stated, she has been a dancer for years so falls and drops she has gotten used to over the years!

Fans helped Paula get back onstage and she continued with the show, putting on a fearless face and completing the third gig on her Straight Up Paula!

Abdul is now on her first solo headlining tour in 25 years-the Straight Up Paula!

That said, this was only the third show of what is her first solo tour in 25 years, with the next one set for Thursday at Caesars Windsor, so here's hoping it's straight up from here.

"The Promise of a New Day" turned into a risky night for Paula Abdul.

Perhaps not seeing the edge, she overstepped and fell over into the crowd.

Speaking before the current tour, the former "American Idol" judge admitted she was starting to get nervous about the live run as they got closer.

Abdul was performing her 1991 hit "The Promise of a New Day". Hopefully, she'll be more careful the rest of the tour - the fall could have been so much worse!

"It's been decades since I've done my own tour, um, but I had a great taste of what it's like being on the road last summer with the New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men, and had a great time". Paula has had various injuries over the year but has never really been sidelined.
