Paula Abdul: 2009 American Music Awards

Holy crap! Petite former American Idol judge, Paula Abdul, is wearing a dress that is almost as big as she is! The pop star selected a strapless, black dress with a mermaid-tail that trailed behind her as she made her way down the red carpet.

While she kept it simple with her medium-length, wavy curls, she showed off a hand completely covered in sparkly bandles and rings. Is that actually a fingerless glove of jewels? Interesting.
