While still a member of the Laker Girls, Abdul got hired to choreograph the video to the Jacksons' song "Torture".
The attention the video got resulted in Abdul getting more work as a choreographer.
She got a deal with Virgin Records and released her debut album, Forever Your Girl, in 1988.
The album spawned the hit singles "Straight Up", "The Way That You Love Me", and "Opposites Attract".
Abdul left American Idol in 2009 after eight seasons.
