Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul
Paula Abdul went from being Janet Jackson's choreographer to achieving pop stardom with her string of hits from "Forever Your Girl." Her follow-up records did not perform as well, and she faded from the spotlight until 2002 when joined "American Idol." Abdul's quirky ways and bickering with fellow judge Simon Cowell often get more attention than the show's contestants. The show propelled Abdul back to stardom, and she's done several side projects, including her own reality show and jewelry collection.
