Paula Does Kylie

Paula Abdul gave Kylie Spinning Around and now it looks like it's Kylie's turn to return the favour!  Paula's next single is a cover of Kylie's track Boombox which was recorded for X but not used.  Kylie did perform the track on her X2008 tour and fans were hoping for a release of some sort but it looks like the track is now a Paula song.  Paula will be premiering the song on her new show Paula Abdul's Rah Cheerleeding Bowl which is starting in the US this week.  You can listen to a sneak peak on her website here
