Paula Abdul Choreographing 80's Janet Is Pure Gold
Paula Abdul- by way of Janet Jackson- invented video choreography. Until this point, the only other person to do a choreographed routine was Michael in the “Beat It” video, and that was only a few, repeated steps. It wasn’t until Paula Abdul began choreographing for Janet during her “Control” phase that full-on routines became a thing. And best believe, everyone, even Michael, followed suit soon after!
