December 8, 2008 – American Idol judge Paula Abdul is taking on a new role. She is the creator, executive producer and host of “Paula Abdul’s RAH Cheerleading Bowl, ” a high-energy cheer squad competition program that will air on MTV January 3rd
The noted choreographer, and perhaps the most famous former “Laker Girl,” Abdul mastered cheerleading as a high schooler. This year, she celebrates the 20th anniversary of her debut album “Forever Your Girl” which hit the number one spot on the Billboard top 200 chart.
Collegiate cheerleaders from around the country sent in audition tapes to MTV and Abdul handpicked five squads to compete in the show. Whether or not you believe cheer is a “real” sport, the participants are all talented athletes who train as hard as many other competitors.
Check back in January for more cheer action.
