2019 Billboard Music Awards - Show

Is Paula Abdul human? The pop icon held absolutely NOTHING back when she performed during the 2019 Billboard Music Awards and we found all the GIFs to prove it.

During her impressive choreography-packed performance, Abdul treated everyone watching to several of her biggest hits including "Straight Up," "Opposites Attract," and "Cold Hearted," while expertly executing the most jaw-dropping dance moves you've ever seen.

Abdul also made reference to her upcoming, just-announced Las Vegas residency, Paula Abdul: Forever Your Girl, which kicks off this August. She recently said of the forthcoming set of shows, "I love telling stories through music and dance, and engaging with the audience,” she says. “I'm taking the essence of the classic choreography that has become part of my legacy and I want to have a real experience with the audience so they leave knowing me a bit more."

No doubt Paula's Billboard Music Awards performance was a sneak peek at what fans can expect. Let's take a closer look at what went down (and up), shall we?

First of all, she got, shall we say, close with the audience.

She literally, accidentally hit Julianne Hough it the face with her hat ... and Julianne was ecstatic.

Second of all ... WHAT.

HOW IS SHE DOING THIS?!

SHE RECREATED ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC MUSIC VIDEOS OF ALL TIME.

She literally got dragged while on stage ... in the best way.

LEGEND.
