Another fan added, “You know what Paula Abdul will 1000% do?? She will perform the hell out of ‘Straight Up.’”
Was Paula Abdul lip-syncing? Obviously. Does it matter? Absolutely not. “I didn’t know I needed a lip-syncing Paula Abdul wearing a sequined jumpsuit tap dancing in front of a turkey float with Flava Flav cheering her on from the audience but here we are and I’m thankful,” another Twitter user pointed out.
Honestly, Flav really sold it for a lot of people. “Flava Flav enjoying Paula Abdul’s performance at the Thanksgiving Day Parade is art,” wrote Huffington Post editor Philip Lewis, who received over six thousand likes and one thousand retweets. Lewis considers it art, and Men’s Health culture editor Evan Romano described the entire ordeal as “cinema.”
