Paula Abdul tumbled off a stage Saturday night in front of startled concertgoers in Biloxi, Mississippi, as she performed one of her hit songs.

Video captured by a fan shows the former "American Idol" judge walking toward the crowd while singing her popular 1991 song "The Promise of a New Day" at the Hard Rock Live. As Abdul inches closer toward the edge of the stage, she encourages the crowd to clap along.

Apparently unaware that she had already reached the edge, Abdul takes a step forward and falls directly into the crowd. The video abruptly ends as people scream.

A rep for the singer told NBC News Abdul was not injured and "was able to continue the show."

"She is excited to continue the tour!" the rep said.

Abdul, 56, is currently on her "Straight Up Paula! North American Tour 2018." Her next concert will be on Oct. 25 in Windsor, Ontario. She will travel to various cities across North America before wrapping the tour in March 2019 in Orillia, Ontario.
