Paula Abdul is set to perform on the November 20 episode of "Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars," and the singer and dancer shared that her upcoming performance is a like a "dream sequence."
Abdul, 50, recently appeared on the dancing series on October 15 as a guest judge, bringing her unique energy to the judging panel for "opponent's choice" week. The performer is now set to grace the ballroom on November 20 with a performance of her own, which she describes as crazy and fun.
Paula Abdul has confirmed that she will not resume her job as a co-judge on the FOX series "The X Factor," while Steve Jones and Nicole Scherzinger have also left in a series shake-up made after lackluster ratings.
"Yes, it's true; I won't be returning to 'The X Factor' next season," the 49-year-old said in a statement to OnTheRedCarpet.com on Tuesday, January 31. "I've learned through my longevity in this industry that business decisions often times override personal considerations. Simon and I, along with Fox and Fremantle, have been communicating about this for a while now, and I have absolute understanding of the situation."
Paula Abdul and record label owner Jeff Bratton have broken up after a year and a half together.
"Paula and I split in November," Bratton told People magazine. "It was an amicable thing. But between the final months of X Factor and my responsibilities with [my label] Cascine, there was little time for us."
Melanie Amaro, who became the first person to win the U.S. version of "The X Factor," says she plans to use part of her $5 million prize money on a lifetime supply of chicken.

Simon Cowell's FOX singing contest series "The X Factor" is set to reveal its first winner on Thursday, December 22.
Wednesday's episode featured the top three finalists - Chris Rene, Melanie Amaro and Josh Krajcik - singing two songs each: A duet with a popular artist and a track they have sung on the show before.
Simon Cowell's FOX singing contest series "The X Factor" has been renewed for a second season, weeks after its debut.
The show features the ex-"American Idol" personality back on the judges' panel, along with former co-star Paula Abdul, "Pussycat Dolls" singer Nicole Scherzinger and music executive L.A. Reid.
After months of build up and promotions, Simon Cowell's latest television talent competition series kicked off on Wednesday, September 21 and the ratings are in.
The show received 12.4 million viewers for its premiere, according to The Hollywood Reporter, significantly less than the 10th season premiere of "American Idol" back in January with 26.2 million viewers.
Simon Cowell is gearing up for the launch of his new reality singing competition "The X Factor," and says that he brought former "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul on board because it's like "owning a dog."
"It's like owning a dog and the dog will only sit next to its master," Cowell, 51, told People magazine. "It's comfortable. If she's away from me, she pines. She's unhappy. She has to sit next to me."
Paula Abdul says she and fellow "X Factor" judge Simon Cowell are "back to our good old relationship" that the two shared on the panel of "American Idol."
FOX confirmed on Sunday, May 8, that Abdul, 48, will serve as the fourth judge of the U.S. version of "The X Factor," a singing contest series Cowell, 51, is launching in the fall. They will be joined by UK singer Cheryl Cole, 27, and American music mogul L.A. Reid, 54.
Paula Abdul might be back at the judging table with Simon Cowell, her former "American Idol" co-star, on Fox's "The X Factor," according to the Associated Press.
The report cites an unnamed source close to the situation, confirming that Abdul's joining the new singing contest was reportedly held up as negotiations continued until the day before the show's first taping.
Representatives for Abdul have not commented on the report.
Cheryl Cole has been confirmed as a judge for the U.S. version of the singing contest series "The X Factor," joining the acerbic Simon Cowell and music mogul L.A. Reid.
A fourth judge is also set to be announced ahead of the show's debut in the fall of 2011 on the FOX network, which also airs "American Idol," the hit series with a similar format that Cowell had left last year.
