The 2010 VMA show is now over and I must say, THE SHOW SUCKED!!! Let's go down memory lane and revisit Paula's 1989 VMA performance.
The big winner in 1989 was Paula Abdul. Maybe you're too young to know that Paula wasn't always a loopy American Idol judge. It's true! The one-time Laker Girl and choreographer to the stars was once America's sweetheart, churning out pop-friendly dance songs and charming the pants off of everyone. And in 1989, it was MTV's pants she took, along with four Moonmen. She danced out of there with the no-brainer Best Choreography award for her "Straight Up" video, as well as Best Female Video, Best Editing and the all new Best Dance Video award.
She also turned out the most notable performance of the night. Really! Paula Abdul commanded the VMA stage for a seven-minute medley of her #1 hits "Straight Up," "Cold Hearted" and "Forever Your Girl." She was truly our girl, and the style and execution of this display proved it.
