Paula Abdul Attends Idol Rehearsal, Dinner Afterward, Idols are Off to Portland!

Paula Abdul attended American Idol tour rehearsal Friday, and took the Idols to dinner at Beso afterward.

After dinner, the Idols hit the dance floor, performing the Paula Abdul choreographed “Don’t Stop til You Get Enough” in the middle of the dance floor. And there was pole dancing. Yes there was!

Paula, Matt Giraud, Anoop Desai, Danny Gokey, Michael Sarver and Scott MacIntyre twittered the deets, plus pictures!

According to Matt, today’s rehearsal was the last in Los Angeles. They’ll be heading to Oregon to get ready for their first concert in Portland on July 5.

From Matt, “Were heading back to the hotel. It was our last day of work until Portland. Next..the big stage. There’s a whole new stage set up this year”
