Wednesday’s season 14 finale of “America’s Got Talent” was a star-studded spectacle that included live performances from Macklemore, Kygo, Ozuna and Cher, to name a few. However, there was one special appearance that took everyone by surprise.
After the lights came up following an energetic performance from the amazing LED dance crew Light Balance Kids, one of the dancers took off their head gear to reveal herself as Paula Abdul.
The unexpected cameo came as a total shock to Abdul’s former “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell, who was blown away while sitting behind the judges panel.
“How did you get up there?” Simon asked, in shock.
“She’s been with the group the whole time” host Terry Crews quipped.
“That was brilliant,” Cowell said of the big surprise, giving her a thumbs up as she blew him kisses from the stage.
The surprising “American Idol” reunion came as a result of Abdul wanting to promote her Las Vegas residency at the Flamingo Hotel.
The “AGT” finale also included special appearances from Billy Ray Cyrus, “AGT” alum Brian King Joseph, world-famous concert pianist Lang Lang, and an absolutely amazing performance from host Julianne Hough, who also joined the acrobatic dance group V.Unbeatable for an epic original routine.
