Kathy Hilton and Paula Abdul both looked as if they were having a blast when they sang a song for the crowd at Paris Hilton’s lavish Bel-Air wedding on Thursday.
Paris’ 62-year-old mother and the 59-year-old singer and choreographer took to the stage at the reception to belt out a tune together.
Although it wasn’t clear what song the old friends settled on, they both took turns sitting backward on a chair, which may have been a reference to the chair used in an early video for Paula’s hit song Straight Up from 1988.
