A fan who posted video of the accident told People:
“She did not seem hurt at the time of the fall and still finished like a champ. She stated she was a dancer, and falls and drops she has gotten used to over the years.”
Some fans could be heard screaming as Abdul dropped off the stage with a thud.
Abdul, who churned out six No. 1 Billboard songs in the late ’80s and early ’90s, hadn’t addressed the tumble on social media as of Monday morning.
A rep for the performer later said in an email to HuffPost: “Paula is fortunately not injured and was able to continue the show. She is excited to continue the tour.”
Her Straight Up Paula! tour was scheduled to resume Thursday in Windsor, Ontario.
