So I was born AFTER Paula Abdul was relevant, so I have NO IDEA why this thing called the MC Skat Kat is popular and/or a “thing.”
Well, it’s been brought to my attention that this is a BIG deal and I’m supposed to feel pangs of nostalgia that Paula Abdul performed on “Dancing With The Stars” and had a reunion dance off with the cartoon cat MC Skat Kat who originally appeared in her “Opposites Attract” music video.
Apparently MC Skat Kat is a cat that raps and dances. Who knew? Oh everyone did? Ok whatever, I listened to Janet Jackson!
Paula performed a medley of her greatest hits on “DWTS” which included “Cold Hearted Snake,” “Forever Your Girl,” and “Straight Up.”
Not only that, but the performances featured multi-media and video screens that broadcast cartoon images and pre-recorded footage of Paula so it looked like she was dancing with herself.
I would be lying if I said that this WASN’T a weird performance to witness. At one point, a cartoon dinosaur ran across the stage and a giant Maksim Chmerkovskiy showed up for a second.
“This is one of the greatest things that we’ve all pulled off [on this show]” according to the show’s host Tom Bergeron.
Well, that’s a loaded statement, but compared to the two-left-feet menagerie of “dancing” they usually churn out on the show, this WAS one of the “greatest things” they’ve done.
