    On Saturday, Paula Abdul tumbled off the stage during a performance in Biloxi, Mississippi. A fan happened to capture the moment on video and uploaded it to YouTube, where it went viral.

    At the time of the incident, the 56-year-old entertainer was singing her 1991 hit "The Promise of a New Day." While clapping and dancing near the edge of the stage at the Hard Rock Live, she accidentally dove headfirst into the crowd. Fans gasped and shouted in response to Abdul's mishap, but according to TMZ, she bounced back and finished her set without further incident.

    A rep for the singer told NBC News Abdul was not injured and "was able to continue the show."

    "She is excited to continue the tour!" the rep said.

    Abdul is currently on her first solo headlining tour in 25 years--the Straight Up Paula! 2018 Tour--which is meant to coincide with the 30th anniversary of her debut album, Forever Your Girl. Saturday's concert was the third date on the North American trek, which ends in March 2019. Her next show is scheduled for Oct. 25 in Ontario at The Colosseum at Caesars Windsor.
