Former pop icon Paula Abdul was given an unusual treat when she appeared on Jay Leno's chat show last night (10MAY04) - a tribute performance from a trio of drag queens.

Abdul - who featured on Leno's show in Las Vegas with her fellow AMERICAN IDOL judges Simon Cowell and RANDY JACKSON - was treated to performances from three of her cross-dressing fans, who each mimed and danced their way through her hits Cold HEARTED, FOREVER YOUR GIRL and STRAIGHT UP.

A stunned Abdul said at the end of the bizarre tribute, "I'm speechless! I'm stealing those moves back. That was great."
