Paula Abdul to debut new music video during Super Bowl pregame

By Christopher Rocchio, 01/14/2008 

Thirteen years after Paula Abdul last released an original album, the American Idol judge is apparently ready to launch her musical comeback on one of the biggest stages around.

Fox has announced Abdul's "Dance Like There's No Tomorrow" music video will premiere during the network's pregame coverage of Super Bowl XLII on Sunday, February 3, USA Today reported Monday. 

The song is the first single to be released off Abdul's upcoming "Abdulmatic" album -- which is produced by fellow Idol judge Randy Jackson, whom USA Today reported will also appear during the pregame show with Abdul.

Abdul's representative confirmed reports last week that Abdul was in talks to perform as part of Fox's coverage of Super Bowl XLII.  While Fox has yet to announce if the Idol judge will in fact sing, Fox Sports Chairman David Hill told USA Today that he's trying to "meld two television icons" by seemingly doubling the Super Bowl telecast as one giant Idol promotion.

Fox tapped Idol host Ryan Seacrest to serve as the master of ceremonies for Super Bowl XLII at Arizona's University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ -- which is the hometown of Idol sixth-season champ Jordin Sparks, who will sing the national anthem prior to the game.

"I wish [Idol judge] Simon Cowell had called and said he's doing, say, an audio book of poetry. Simon reading William Wordsworth. It'd probably sell," Hill joked to USA Today.

Super Bowl XLII will be Fox's first Super Bowl broadcast in three years (the game rotates annually among Fox, CBS, and NBC, the NFL's three broadcast network partners), and while Hill was the first to acknowledge Fox could be "overboard on entertainment," according to USA Today, he quickly added that it will be all about football following the kickoff.

"No personalities in the booth," he told USA Today.  "I disagree with that totally -- 200%."
