Do call it a comeback: Paula Abdul closed out the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday with a medley of her greatest hits, marking her first live performance at an award show in 29 years. Among the ear worms performed at the BBMAs were “Straight Up,” “Opposites Attract” and “Cold Hearted.”

This performance doubled as promotion for the former American Idol judge’s upcoming Las Vegas residency, Forever Your Girl, which begins Aug. 13 and is expected to run through Jan. 2020.

Hosted by Kelly Clarkson, this year’s Billboard Music Awards were held at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena, a fittingly lavish venue for the caliber of performers on deck. Along with Abdul and Clarkson, Wednesday’s ceremony featured live performances from the likes of BTS, Ciara, Dan + Shay, Halsey, the Jonas Brothers, Khalid, Madonna, Maluma, Mariah Carey, Lauren Daigle, Panic! At the Disco, Taylor Swift and Tori Kelly. We also got a taste of Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings,” but it was merely a pre-recorded performance from her Sweetener World Tour.
