Perhaps we don’t give Paula Abdul enough credit. When she left “American Idol,” we worried about what she could possibly do next to save her career, short of making a 2010 remix of “Forever Your Girl.” Well, the joke is on us. According to Entertainment Weekly, Paula is close to inking a new deal to be the host of “Star Search,” the classic ’80s singing/dancing/joking/spokesmodeling competition show rebooted.

I was a huge “Star Search” fan back in the day. Every Saturday night, I remember watching with my sister and our babysitter, Bonnie, while eating frozen pizza. At the time, I thought Ed McMahon was the coolest dude on the planet, and dreamed of learning to dance like “America’s Apple Pie.” I had no idea that many of the folks performing on the show would go on to be mega-stars. So, in honor of Paula’s possible new show, let’s look back at some classic “Star Search” performances from some very familiar faces.
