When Paula Abdul returns to Dancing With the Stars during Tuesday's results show, she won't be alone.
The singer, dancer and recent guest judge says her performance of a four-song medley will include a familiar face: MC Skat Kat, the animated feline who co-starred in her 1989 music video for "Opposites Attract."
"Someone is coming out of retirement," Adbul teased backstage after Monday's episode. "I've been rehearsing with him, and I can't understand his dance moves. He's all over the place. I told him he needs to get some rhythm because I can't keep up."
Despite the notes of sarcasm, she's not joking. A rep for Abdul confirms that the cartoon cat will be making a "small" appearance during the show.
The performance coincides with the Tuesday iTunes release of Abdul's "Dream Medley," a mix of four of her biggest hits: “Straight Up," “Cold Hearted," “Forever Your Girl” and "Opposites Attract."

Adbul's return so quickly after her stint as a judge also sparks some questions about her interest in possibly joining the series on a more regular basis. (A veteran judge of American Idol and The X Factor, it wouldn't be outside her wheelhouse.) But when asked about the prospects of a full-time gig, she remained diplomatically coy.
"I've had so much fun on this show," said Abdul, "I'd help clean the dressing rooms."
