Adam Lambert was set to perform a couple of songs of “Good Morning America”, which was slated to air November 25, 2009. The show has pulled the plug on the appearance, after his racy performance at Sunday night’s American Music Awards.
The network said that it received over 1,500 complaints due to the content of the show, after Adam kissed a guy, shoved another’s head into his crotch and diddled a girl.
An ABC spokesperson said, “Given his controversial live performance on the AMAs we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning.”
So sad that people won’t just let Adam be Adam. Female entertainers have been doing the same thing for a long time, so why the double standard?
Update: Ryan Seacrest has just tweeted this, “just got off the phone with @adamlambert. He’s not taking @ABC’s decision personally. “they probably have a lot of pressure coming at them”. He’s a good sport, but it’s just silly for them to cancel his performance. Shame on NBC for being so closeminded. This is 2009, not 1889.
