ABC Cancels Adam Lambert Performance After AMA Controversy

adam_lambert_singing

The reception to Adam Lambert‘s performance Sunday on the American Music Awards show was a mixed bag with supporters on one side and the disappointed on the other. ABC has apparently decided it’s on the disappointed side and has canceled Lambert’s planned appearance and performance originally scheduled for Wednesday, November 23rd on Good Morning America:

An ABC News spokesperson tells Access [Hollywood], “Given his controversial live performance on the AMAs we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning.”

ABC received around 1,500 negative comments regarding Adam’s AMAs performance, which is considered “moderate.”

What do you think? Should Adam Lambert be blacklisted from appearing on GMA after his controversial performance at the AMAs? Share your opinion below!

  1. I will not be purchasing Adam’s CD although I was eagerly awaiting its release. His “artistic expression” translates to poor taste in my book.

  2. Yes, he should be banned from GMA and all daytime and prime time shows! I was a supporter of his talent during American Idol, but since then, his performances, and especially his performance at the AMA’s was down right vulgar and disgusting!! I’m VERY disappointed in him. I don’t want to see any more from him.

  3. I’m also glad I didn’t prepurchase his CD as I was thoroughly disgusted by his tasteless performance. It has nothing to do with him being gay……..I wanted to watch a great singer not a sexual performance. Shame on you Adam.

  4. I a so very disappointed in Adam. Loved him, didn’t care that he was gay. Thought he had tremendous talent. I can’t even remember what he sang on AMAs . My head just has that horrible performance in it. I was looking forward to buying he CD too, Now I won’t do it. What were you thinking, Adam? Shame on you… i think you threw away your fan base!
    I was very disappointed in almost all of the AMA performances. I don’t think I will be watching that show ever again if this is what they promote!
    SAD

  5. VERY TACKY!!! What happened to his voice?! AWEFUL!! I don’t like seeing the gay bondage “thing” to that detail on prime time T.V.! I’m very disappointed!! I WILL NOT buy his CD! I was voting for him on AI now I’m glad he didn’t win! TERRIBLE!!!!

  6. I WAS an avid fan of Adam until last monday …. it was not sexy, as he claimed it to be… it wascrass, disgusting, one you expect from a singer with no singing talant… and it came from adam …. i am no longer a fan…

  7. I was a fan. I still think he has the pipes, but I question his judgment and any “artistic” advisors he might now have. You simply don’t put a Vegas type show on TV (and in this case, a tacky Vegas show to boot!), unless it’s pay-per-view or on a paid for premium channel. In addition, this was tasteless and lacked artistic merit (IMO). I don’t like to judge, I really don’t, but in this case I will. My judgment is negative. He hurt himself with this performance.

  8. YES HE SHOULD BE CANCELED FROM GOOD MORNING AMERICA. I AM A HUGE FAN OF ADAMS. BUT, HE DROPPED THE BALL!!!! HIS PERFORMANCE ON AMA WAS DISGUSTING, NASTY. OVER THE TOP. AND WAS LIKE A BONDAGE SADOMASOCHISM PERFORMANCE!! AND HIS SAYING WOMEN CAN DO IT! MADONNA DOES IT. UGH NO, SHE HAS NEVER BEEN THAT VULGAR. AND ADAM IF YOU WANT TO TELL US IF WE DIDN’T LIKE IT WE DON’T WANT YOU. JUST KEEP IT UP AND YOU WILL NOT BE THE BIG STAR YOU COULD HAVE BEEN! SIMON SAID YOU WOULD BE WORLD KNOWN AND AN ICON. TONE IT DOWN OR YOU WILL JUST BE GONE BACK TO WHAT EVER IT WAS YOU DID BEFORE AMERICAN IDOL. LOVE YOU! BUT HATED YOUR PERFORMANCE ON AMERICAN IDOL. SHERRY K

  9. I know that type of peformance made by Adam in AMA’S is not required to an early show like GMA.But I still belive Adam knows that and He is responsible enough to know what to perform in that early show…Give him A chance.

  10. I love you Adam, but your performance was totally inappropriate. There is a time and place for everything and that was not the time nor the place!! We want to see your talent, NOT your sex life!!! Please shape up! I don’t want to see you ruine your career before it even starts!!

  11. I missed the performance, but from all I hear, find that I’m not sorry. Adam needs to understand that we don’t care about his sexual fantasies, his appetite (I did see the kiss on some site), or his perversions. He is not going to realize his potential if he stays on that track, and the arrogance has got to go. You aren’t that big, Adam.

  12. I thought Adam was disgusting. I was happy that I saw his performance before his CD went on sale. I had planned on buying it but now I don’t want my money supporting that trash. It is such a tragedy because Adam is so talented. He needs to understand that sexual fantasies (anyones) should stay in the privacy of one’s home. I agree with Sara ~ his arrogance has to go.

  13. I watched Adam Lambert’s performance on the music award show last night and was very dissapointed in it. He has an amazing voice, but would not want to watch it on a morning talk show, or ever again, actually. I was a big fan of his during American Idol and have all of his songs on my IPod, but I won’t listen to him and his band if that is any indication of what we can expect from him.

  14. WOW. Going back to “lets not see Elvis gyrating his hips”. There are so many horrific things we see on our TV – seeing Adam was entertaining. You can either find it funny and laugh, hate it and switch to another programme or sit back and be entertained.

  15. Ask yourself – Is this the American society you American want. It is definitely correct not to air his show. An Idol must be for the majority and not the minority.

  16. I am a huge adam fan. I followed him on AI and I also went to the concert. I saw the performance, and i couldn’t help but sort of shake my head. He’s such a great performer and singer, he doesn’t need all that stuff to back him up. I think all those dancers and weird stuff sort of took away from his great voice. His performance was innapropriate and he does need to tone it down a bit. I loved him for his uniqueness but this was too over the top. The reason why he stood out on idol was because he was different but in his own sort of way. He was himself, and took risks. This seems like It was sort of like a sad attempt at trying to be like lady gaga (whom I also love). I think he should still be able to go onto gma but he should maybe address it and maybe say his reasoning behind the performance? i don’t know. I liked him before cause he had that mellow sexy demenour, and that was what made him so appealing

  17. His performance show that he has not learn from his failure in the American Idol competition. If his performance allow to continue be aired, what will be the effect on the young American populatioon. Good luck Amercians.

  18. Kudos to CBS for picking up where ABC wimped out. CBS Early Show will air Adam live on 11/25 ! To those who are shocked at the AMA performance, boooo! Lord knows we get our fill on girl/girl contact on TV and no one says a word. It’s definitely a double standard going on.

  19. I was a true supporter of Adam on AI, and I still like him. However, his perfoemance on the AMA’s was absolutely inappropriate for that venue. Although I was not personally offended by his antics, I believe that this type of performance would be more appropriate for a Vegas ast or a pay-per-view show, or even a live concert – as long as the audience knew what to expect. People of all generations watch the AMA’s, and Adam knew better than to perform in the way that he did. He’s new to the business, and is badly in need of guidance – and soon!

  20. I think he tried to prove a point as people can’t leave his sexuality alone. Although I do not approve of his actions, I kind of understand why he did it. I still love him as he is a great singer and performer and I will buy his CD. Adam you rock, but please learn a lesson from this and start behaving yourself. You can still stay the unique wonderfull person you are without the added entertainment.

  21. Adam Lambert is a ‘sexy thing’. That being said his AMA performance was not ‘sexy’. It was comical. Too much crap going on at one time. Obviously, he tripped in the middle of that chaos. He needs to fire his choreographer. That being said the guy is a trooper, back today holding his head up, and taking all of the bad press. I saw the AI tour, voted for Adam and have bought both Adam’s and Kris’s CD. I’m surprised, so far I am liking Kris’s better, and it has nothing to do with the performance, however like the performance his CD just has too much ‘stuff’ going on. Come on, Adam, bring back the beautiful voice, and your lip curl.

  22. C’mon people, Adam was entertaining on an Awards show, look at the celebs that have come before him and this certainly is a double standard. I hope he is around for a long time. I will buy his CD and keep watching him, he has a fabulous voice, judge him on that!

  23. Have no problem with homosexuality–several friends and relatives.
    His conduct was overt and distasteful–
    Great voice and hope he continues to do well.

  24. I watched and thought it was sleazy. I did not think Adam needed the almost porn flick he gave. It is certainly not appropriate for the many young fans that watch his show.I will no longer bother to watch him.I WAS one of his fans.

  25. I love Adam from the first moment on Idol. I still love him and I always will. I’m very sadden by the reaction he received after AMA.
    People took it too seriously! Was suppoused to be just entertainment.Kudos to CBS and others who believe in him!

  26. The song was overshadowed by the actions on stage and, while it was not my favorite performance, it was only slightly more graphic than I expected from Adam. Doubt he would do some of what he did on that stage on other stages. The album itself is actually quite good with a mix of tame but beautiful songs mixed in.

  27. Well,what to say..Adam is great, but I think he’s over the top.What happen to his manager and choreographer?what’s there main responsibility being adams carrier’s caretaker?Are they just for money?Huh!!I felt bad for Adam

  28. Watching him on CBS morning show right now. Great performance! And CLEAN. Give this guy a chance. He’s a great talent.

  29. Look how success has gone to his head. Shame on you Adam, I thought you were better than that. You have screwed yourself big time.

  30. Get real people. It’s called entertainment. I’m so glad CBS picked him up for their morning show. There goes your ratings ABC, downhill.

  31. Please, release him, let him earn his money from his talent cos he can sing and really entertaining…I enjoy it..with his good look and his voice and stage performance. Thank you..

  32. I didn’t like his performance Sunday night–just too much going on, but this morning he was the Adam I came to love on AI. Nice going, Adam! Rock on!

  33. It is not ok to be gross and let your sexuality go on air and ,it is gross making human beings into sex slaves in concert.Adam your talent that was on American idol was great but you went over board and it was like having rope slaves and screwing them and doing gross things that was not exceptable.and so you like men or what eevr well thats your life but when you have to do what you have done then there is a stop to your sex acts on tv.and i belive you can be what you want to be but if its absene then its wrong.You went over board and take this stuff out and do whats right noone wants to see this crap

  34. Boycott him – he has no place in the entertainment world. Doing sex on air is not entainment unless for a pervert that needs that kinds of scenario to get his/her kicks. There are many more talented out there. We do not need A Lambert.

  35. love you no matter what you do, but…I want you to be the next megastar, and to do that you must appeal to all.I certainly wouldn’t judge you by one performance..Your CD is wonderful, and will buy anything and everything you do, but…hopefully when it comes to concert you will show us 80-90% of the Adam the world fell in love with on AI..and I mean ages 5-100..There is no one on the planet that can attract followers like you, but let’s see a lot of the cleaner cut “feelin’ good ” Adam.. Nothing wrong with seeing all sides of Adam in a 2 or 3 hour concert, but must do what you did to us with Mad World, Cryin,Feelin’Good,Black or White,Ring of Fire, etc…Would absolutely love a CD of all your AI perfomances…Talk about selling millions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I want to see it all, but YOUR people seem to have spoken..Keep the extreme to a minimum,maybe one out of 10 songs…When you have only one song to do for world viewing, touch us all..Bless you and thank you for all you do..

  36. Adam kept his sexuality hush while performing on AI which really does not matter to most people now days, but to display this type of moves in concert will not be appealing to the people that voted for him on AI. People of all ages and sexes and sexuality voted for him full well knowing he was gay but that did not matter because he had an amazing voice and talent which everyone waited to see every week. He really needs to conduct his performances for all people, not for the gay community alone (which probably did not mind the concert performance) but most did not see this appropriate.

  37. glory hallelujiah, you are so wrong..Adam has talent that only comes along once every fifty years or so if that..For you to judge him on one poor decision (in your eyes)is ridiculous.Altho the feedback is negative for this one perfomance,and understandably (to a degree)Give the man a break…anyone that “boycotts” him for one performance was never a fan,and doesn’t understand people or music..your loss

  38. ADAM’S PERFORMANCE ON AMA MIGHT HAVE BEEN OVER THE TOP BUT I SUSPECTED IT WOULD BE…..ALL YOU ADAM FANS OUT THERE WHO ARE NOT GOING TO BUY HIS CD ARE REALLY MISSING OUT ON A GREAT CD. TRACK 1 & 2 (2ND TRACT BEING FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT) ARE GREAT…I CAN’T STOP PLAYING IT…I ALSO BOUGHT KRIS ALLEN’S AND I WAS DEEPLY DISAPPOINTED….IT WAS BORDENLINE BORING….MAYBE ONE OR TWO TRACKS WERE JUST OK….BUT ADAM’S WAS GREAT….I CAN’T STOP DANCING IN THE CAR…..ADAM FANS GIVE IT A CHANCE…THE CD IS MUCH BETTER THAN HIS PERFORMANCE ON AMA……HE’S GOT TALENT, RARE TALENT AND HE IS GOING TO EXPLOIT IT…..I’M WAITING FOR HIM TO COME TO LAS VEGAS…..ITS A SHOW I WANT TO SEE…….ESPECIALLY BECAUSE HE IS DIFFERENT…….HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

  39. How many people would buy a CD that had all of his AI performances on it, or perhaps a DVD that showed all, including his original interview..Awesome! Push for that!!!!

  40. I personally want to see and feel eveything Adam feels, and if he gets caught up in the moment, so be it..Let him iron out the “kinks” 🙂 No pun intented,but this man has it all, let him evolve…

  41. Adam Lambert is a significant and impressive talent. His earlier works on stage before American Idol can be extoled and should be looked at. In my opinion he was the most talented performer of the last American Idol, but popularity and acceptability won. He professes that no one has the right to limit his artistic ability; however, given that he must except the consequences of what his audience considers is in poor taste and frankly beyond the limit of that audience’s acceptability. He wanted SHOCK and he got it, but then those of ABC had to deferr to their primary audience and not arbitrarily permit offense to those who watch their stations and network.

  42. Most difinately not cancel him. He is a great proformer. Don’t pentalize him for one show. His CD is awesome. I vote to have him on. I think by now, he knows he went a little over the top for some. But you are going to have these people everywhere. It sure kept the AMA interesting.He’s still working out the kinks. Give the guy a chance. He deserves a chance.

  43. Hi Babs and PHYLLIS,

    Nice to see your names again. I LOVE ADAM’S CD – can’t stop listening to it. I went to the American Idols Tour show in Hartford, Ct just to see Adam – he is spectacular and an amazing performer. I would go see him again anytime I could. As for the happenings in the show, I agree with his premise that women get away with a lot of sexy, sometimes raunchy moves and it is entertainment and he wants to have the same opportunity. However, the only thing I wasn’t thrilled with was the grinding on the dancer’s head at his crotch – he doesn’t need to shock us, his great vocals, looks, and performance are the best there is, and he will be talked about and loved no matter what he does. I think the performance was fine, because he is so sexy and even though I am older I am not a prude, others maybe won’t agree, and like Babs said, he knows he went over the top for some – I only think about preteens and what affect it would have on them. Still love him though.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all

  44. I LOVE ADAM LAMBERT!! I AM A MEMBER OF HIS FAN CLUB.He has the potential to be a world wide and well known star! He is super good looking! super talented!!! He just went a bit over the top on the AMA. I watched the video of the same song. It was GREAT! The singing in it was as ADAM’S USUAL~GREAT, WONDERFUL. He smiled. He winked! He was adorable!! Something was just a bit off at the AMA. I think he was nervous! He will be fine!! This man is very talented! He will calm down a bit with some time. AND THE ADAM HIS FANS LOVE WILL BE BACK AND DO JUST GREAT! I LOVE YOU ADAM. AND I AM PULLING FOR YOU ALWAY’S. Just go out there like Randy said and sing your face off. And everything will be cool. I remember how flabergasted people were at Madonna when she first came out!

  45. Adam had a great voice on American Idol, he can sing just about anything, but he chooses this style of song that does not let you hear his great vocals. As for his performance, I did not care for it, then again, I do not care for Madonna either and she did not go as far as Adam. Adam reminds me of Prince, that flashy style. I hope he learns that he is a musician and all the extra vulgarity will not help him sell music, I will not buy his CD’s till he grows up!

  46. Yeah, Adam’s performance was really quite shocking and inappropriate, especially since my whole family watched it, and the kids were scared half to death by all the sexual stuff(they were huge fans too).
    But I definitely do not think that one show can define how he’s going to perform for the rest of his career. Give him a chance!
    [I thought Adam’s CD was totally AWESOME, by the way]

  47. I am a 68 yr old woman living in Israel. Adam is the most talented and versatile performer since Sammy Davis Jr. Why was Michael Jackson permitted his provacative movements? Adam was performing to an adult audience in late evening. He should not be reprimanded for his actions This is ADAM. I also feel that he should have won american idol and not Mr. Allen

  48. GUYS!!!THINK OF SODOMA AND GOMORA!!!TRY TO READ THE BIBLE!!THAT’S WHAT MY PREMONITION OF ADAMS PERFORMANCE IN AMA. HE HAS ALL THE TALENT BEING A PERFORMER AND INTERTAINER NO QUESTION ASKED.BUT THAT PERFORMANCE WAS REALLY A VERY BIG AND HUGE GARBAGE FOR ME

  49. I THINK ADAM’S PERFORMANCE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PREVIEWED BEFORE HE PERFORMED AT THE AWARDS. HE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO PERFORM ON THE ABC SHOW BUT ALTER THE PERFORMANCE TO ONE THAT IS SUITABLE FOR ALL TO SEE ESPECIALLY YOUNG PEOPLE. YES I AGREE ADAM DIDN’T DO ANY WILD PERFORMANCES WHEN HE WAS AI, AND HE SHOULD HAVE KEPT HIS SEXUALITY ON THE DOWN LOW. HE SHOULD KEEP THIS IN MIND FOR HIMSELF IN THE FUTURE.

  50. Yes he should be banned! I really liked him on American Idol however after last weeks performance he certainly is not an American Idol! Kids look up to the American Idols and he portrays a bad role model at this stage in the game. He really could have probably made it in the entertainment industry he is extremely talented, however I think he made a BIG Mistake. As for the Producers/Directors of the AMA’s do they not review their performers or their dress rehearsals? That doesn’t look too good for them either!

  51. Adam is no more controversial than Madonna, Michael Jackson, EMnM, or any of the filthy rappers out there. There is a double standard because he is gay. Grow a pair ABC. Everyone that loved Adam knew he was going to be outrageous and ground breaking and that is why we loved him. He actually won American Idol, the “Faulty Voting” was the reason he did not get the title. Another case of “no nads” by a network. Give the guy his due, he is fabulous, he’s a hunk and he can sing anything. This is coming from a 100% heterosexual, happily married, very sexual, 58 year old woman.

  52. I have been a total supporter of Adam Lambert from the very beginning. I have no problem with him being gay, His talent has been amazing, I have likened him with some of the greats, including Elvis Presley. I believe he is that good. I am however totally disappointed with his performance on the AMA’S, Why did he do this? It only gave his critics ammunition, He himself confirmed some of their bigoted comments. He is great, He didn’t need this kind of attention. I don’t care whether it’s two women or two men, I don’t want to see you kissing, nor do I want to see animations of oral sex, and men on leashes. I watch and listen for his amazing talent, not some kind of unnecessary shock performance. Sure Adam, Madonna and Britney did it, I found that to be totally garbage as well. Please, stick to entertaining, singing your songs with the dignity they deserve. People don’t even remember the song of that night, all they remember is the sexual garbage. Keep sex in the bedroom, where it belongs, whether male or female. I just hope you haven’t already jeopardized your career.

  53. I love Adam Lambert, I have watched him from the begining of AI. God has given him a great gift, which he should concentrate on. I think Adam will go far, as for his performance on the AMA’s it was not what I expected from him. Let’s put the sexual crap aside, his voice was flat, not what he can do by far. He is new to this industry therefore he has to work harder than others. Now for the show, I don’t think Adam put the whole thing together by himself, doesn’t he have advisors to guide him on these types of things, where were they? You would think they would know better.
    This was huge mistake made on national television. I think he has learned from it especially if he wants a career in this industry. I think it safe to say his show on the Grammy’s would be fine, more low keyed. I love you Adam I think you will go far, just focus on your gift.

  54. Thank-You so much DR Robin Parkville! I am a huge fan of ADAM LAMBERT! I HOPE HE READS YOUR ADVISE AND TAKES IT TO HEART! God did give ADAM a wonderful voice. And it is a great gift he should concntrate on. I don’t know if ADAM put that whole silly thing together at the AMA’S. He is signed with RCA/JIVE records!! I love what you have said to ADAM and again I hope he reads it and takes it to heart! If he does just focus truly on his gift he will become a great star! Thanks again! Sherry K

  55. FIRST OF ALL, EVERYONE NEEDS TO GROW UP. HOW MANY ARTISTS IN THE PAST & PRESENT HAVE DONE THAT & MORE. C’MON, GIVE THE GUY A BREAK!

    ANOTHER THING, I DON’T THINK ADAM WOULD’VE DONE THE SAME TYPE OF PERFORMANCE ON GMA, SO I THINK ABC JUMPED THE GUN THERE. AFTER ALL, I DID HAVE THE PLEASURE OF SEEING HIM ON CBS MORNING SHOW & HE WAS JUST AS FABULOUS AS EVER. SO THIS WAS JUST ABC’S LOSS, AS I’M SURE CBS HAD MILLIONS OF VEIWERS THAT MORNING. LOL

  56. Very disappointed. Loved him on Idol. He is getting some very bad advice or someone needs to give him some advice. He has chosen the wrong path so he is history.

  57. Everyone deserves a second chance. Hopefully he learned from his mistake. I don’t care that you are gay, that was not the issue, it was the trashy behavior. Adam show us the classy guy that I know you are! I’m listening to your CD right now and am LOVING IT!!!

  58. I am a hugh fan of Adams and he is a very
    intelligent man. He said he got caught up in
    the moment and performed the lyrics to his song
    which for some was too risque. The song lyric
    states “can you handle what bout to do”.
    Obviously some people can’t. haha
    ABC’s statement to cx Adam because they were not sure what he would do in the morning show,
    was no more than a lie. As I said before, Adam
    is very intelligent and he was not planning on
    singing any RISQUE

  59. My finger slipped and I didn’t finish my
    comment. haha As i said before, Adam is very
    intelligent and he was not planning on singing
    any RISQUE songs. I lost respect for ABC at that time. Adam is the most talented singer/
    entertainer that has come along in years. I am
    not disappointed in Adam but I am in ABC. Their prejudice is very clear to me now especially with some of the other programs on
    ABC. Not that it is important but I am a 57
    year old straight female.

  60. I thought your performance was a disgrace, you not only shamed yourself you shamed your parents as well.I watched how proud they were of you Adam on American Idol You were a disgrace to the awards show,I had to pull my kids away from the TV. I will never ever buy or let my kids buy any recordiongs you make , you also made a mockery out of the gay public. Take a hike buddy you are a disgrace,and you are are a sick person.

  61. Why is it the gay community – has to come out of the closet. Actually most of us do not want to hear about anyone’s sexual preference!! If you are singer – sing -then shut up!

  62. Pleaseeople, grow up, no one seemed to be bothered by Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” on award shows. He is an incredable singer, let’s leave him alone and see what happens

  63. I AGREE WITH YOU JULIAN…….HE IS A GIFTED SINGER AND IF YOU PEOPLE GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE AND GO BUY HIS CD YOU WILL KNOW WHAT I MEAN….BEING ON THE AMA AT 11:00 SHOULD INSURE THAT THE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE IN BED AND IF YOU LET YOUR KIDS STAY UP THAT LATE ON A SUNDAY NIGHT THEN SHAME ON YOU!!!!!! YOU CHILDREN WILL NOT BECOME GAY AND RISQUE IF THEY ARE NOT ALREADY GAY AND RISQUE…..
    HE MIGHT HAVE BEEN OVER THE TOP BUT HE DOESN’T DESERVE TO BE BANNED FROM ABC…….I DON’T THINK HE WILL DO THAT AGAIN ON NATIONAL TV…..
    IF YOU ARE AN ADAM FAN GIVE YOURSELF A HOLDAY GIFT AND BUY HIS CD…..IT REALLY IS EXCELLENT AND THE MORE I PLAY IT THE MORE I LOVE IT…..ALL 14 NUMBERS….

  64. Hi Phyliss G. (Las Vegas,NV) It’s Sherry K from last year on american Idol.You know from North Little rock. About 30 miles from Kris Allens home town!! I emailed ABC and gave them a piece of my mind!! But, It didn’t do any good! They didn’t even respond! I belong to ADAM’S fan club at dreamsound. We are all excited about ADAM’S CD. I just LOVE IT!! We are all sending emails to ABC and we are really mad at how they are treating ADAM!!YOU ARE RIGHT. HE MAY HAVE BEEN A LITTLE OVER THE TOP. BUT THAT IS NO REASON TO BAN HIM. I AM REALLY MAD THAT THEY DID THAT TO ADAM. I AM LIKE YOU! I HAVE LISTENED TO THE CD OVER AND OVER. I JUST LOVE IT. WELL HAVE FUN WATCHING AMERICAN IDOL. I WILL PROBABLY WATCH IT A BIT BECAUSE MY HUSBAND LIKES IT.I do feel sorry for Kris Allen ! He is such a nice sweet christian young man. But his debut album only sold 80,000 copys AND ADAM’S SOLD 250,000. BYE SHERRY

  65. Adam is VERY talented, his number at the AMA wasn’t the best, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t great. As far as the homophic comments, they don’t belong here.
    For witty: YOU should read the bible: it’s Sodom and Gomorrah.
    And like it or not, there are gay people in the world and many in showbiz and more and more will come out.

  66. HI SHERRY,
    NICE TO HEAR FROM YOU……I KNEW WE WOULD BE ON THE SAME PAGE ABOUT ADAM……THE MORE I LISTEN TO HIS CD THE BETTER I LOVE IT….I ALSO BOUGHT KRIS ALLEN’S CD….THERE IS ONLY ONE SONG ON IT THAT I LIKE AND THAT IS “HEARTLESS”…I FEEL BAD FOR HIM BUT THAT AI LAST YEAR WAS A SHAM…..ADAM WAS THE BEST AND EVEN ALAN KNEW IT….OH WELL…..I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEW TALENT NEXT SEASON, I BELIEVE IT STARTS JAN. 12TH….ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS AND WE’LL TALK IN JANUARY……

  67. OK, first to Palo. Sorry about the caps! My son has told me it is screaming. Sometimes I forget to turn it off. So I do apologize for that! I don’t think I am the only one though! That said. Hi Phyllis! Thanks for the shout back! Yes we have always been on the same page about ADAM! I just love ADAM’S CD. It reminds me kind of like a young David Bowie. Poor Kris! I do feel sorry for him! And I have never wanted to bash him. He is a nice Christian young man. He just does not have near the talent of ADAM. Yes and Kris knew it. When he was called the winner he looked at ADAM (Kris ) and said ” He should have won”. Bless Kris’s heart. I wish him a happy and promising life.He is a sweet person. I hope he makes some money and hangs on to it. Because I don’t think he will be a star for a long time. It is always nice to talk to you Phyllis. You have a GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON TOO! Take care and we shall see what takes place on American Idol this new year.And can chat after that gets started! BYE! Sherry K

  68. The night he did this totally changed my view and what I had deveoped as far as appreciation for his great talent. Now I am so upset over this performance. It was not necessary to act that way to get attention. He already had peoples attention!!! It was so discussing of a performance that I can’t even think of him the same, nor the music I downloaded before this happen. I can’t even listen to it. I really wished he hadnt done what he done. Im sorry Adam,,, you DON’T have to act this way.

  69. cancel all of him.. What he choses to do in his life is his own busnisses but to flant it is wrong..if we allow him to get away with it what else is this world going to do.

  70. Ok. First I will say I LOVE Adam and always will! I dont quite think the performance was appropriate for all audiences but the fault is not squarely on his shoulders. SOMEONE had to help with the choreography Im sure, and it just wasnt the kiss and such that was too steamy. Also even without the “improvisons” shouldnt someone from the network have pre-watched the performance to see what he was kinda going to do? And People HELLO!!! HAs anyone actually LISTENED to the song itself!! Its actually one of my favorites on the album, and if you really listen to the song and think about what the meaning most likely is….the performace could have been so much worse….really. And frankly, even if it offended some people, Im just weird enough to think it was hot, except for maybe the part where he kissed the guy. Sadly I do think that this early in his carreer, with this and the appearance of his first album cover art….on the whole if he hasnt already, he is going to seriously hurt his carreer if he doesnt tow the line a little more. At least until he has been established for a little longer..I for one hope he wakes up because i love his voice and amazing talent.

    I personally thought it was a very interesting version of the song, and didnt he say someone else had already recorded it baisically the same way (except without the added Adam flare) Isnt that what we want to se in our Idols? Arent they suposed to be artistically creative and own the song and make it theirs? I think Adam did that the best out of everyone.

  72. TO KITTEN KITIA,
    I AGREE 100% WITH YOU….I JUST LOVE THIS GUY…HE CAN SING ANYTHING…..I TRULY LOVE THIS CD…ITS THE ONLY THING ON IN MY CAR….I KNOW ALL THE WORDS…YES, HE IS UNIQUE AND BECAUSE OF THAT HE IS BEING BASHED. NOT FAIR…I DON’T KNOW IF YOU SAW HIS APPEARANCE LAST NIGHT ON SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE BUT I GOT A LITTLE NERVOUS WHEN THE GUITAR PLAYER WENT OVER TO HIM…..THANK HEAVENS IT WAS NOTHING…I FEARED THAT WHAT HAVE PUT A NAIL IN HIS COFFIN (AS THE SAYING GOES)….BUT HE WAS WONDERFUL….SO TALENTED….

    SHERRY K…….DEFINITELY LOOKING FORWARD TO CHATTING WITH YOU NEXT IDOL SEASON..JAN 12TH..

    EVERYONE…..HAVE A WONDERFUL ANF SAFE HOLIDAY.

  73. Re: Phyllis G. 🙂 Thanks. lol funny thing is yep, since i got it Thats the only CD in my car also. At the moment I am currently playing it and Allisons on my blackberry where i saved them both. “Whataya Want From Me” is actually playing now lol. and just now “Aftermath” I dont think Ill ever get tired of listening to it. I hope his next album has some heavyer rock influence tho, because i think thats where those beautiful pipes truly shine, and im partial to rock myself lol. I melted into a hormonal female pool when he sang “Born to be Wild” OMG!!! I played it over and over and over again and was very sad when i lost everything saved on my dvr 🙁

  74. cant wait for the new season, but i wonder how anything could top the excitement Adam brought to the table this last season. we shall see

  75. I AGREE KITTENKITIA…..I REALLY DON’T THINK WE’LL SEE THE MAGNITUDE OF TALENT THAT ADAM HAS AGAIN….THE MAN’S VOICE IS AWESOME…ON HIS CD….ANYONE OF THOSE SONGS CAN BE A HIT SINGLE….I DANCE ALL THE WAY TO WORK….PEOPLE THINK I’M PROBABLY NUTS…..
    I WISH HE WOULD HAVE MADE A CD OF THE SONGS HE SANG ON AI…..I LOVED ALL OF THEM TOO…..LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ON BLOG NEXT SEASON….SHOULD BE FUN…

  76. LOL I loved them too, bought all of them on Itunes. and i mean all of them. Even bought “Born to be Wild” and a couple others as the video as well. Nothing compares to actually seeing his Finale performance though!! Even though they stick the freeby winners all the way in the nosebleed seats in the balcony behind the neon sign, I wouldnt trade the experience for the world. I managed to get all of the girls autographs and some amazing pics, but didnt get to meet the boys unfortunately. I did pass Matt Girrard on the street close enough to touch him though, gone before i realized it tho. lol. That was one wild trip. Hope they do soemthing similar here again this season. 🙂

  77. I KNOW ADAM IS GOING ON TOUR NEXT YEAR…I CAN ONLY HOPE HE STOPS IN VEGAS….I WILL HAVE FRONT ROW SEATS….OR THEREABOUTS…LOL

  78. it’s pretty bad that TV will show dead bodies and crime and hateful things as well as war! but people get all shocked by Adam’s actions! I MEAN COMMON he didn’t kill anyone and there was no wardrobe malfunction! This is just stupid……….

  79. For those of you who are boycotting Adam’s album, you are really missing something incredible. Never have I craved listening to anyone’s music the way I have this young man. I am 65 years old straight mom of 5, celebrating Christmas with our huge group with 8 1/2 grandchildren, and would play this album instead of Christmas music today, if I could get away with it. I think it would keep everyone up in spirit and dancing around all day. I was as shocked as anyone at the AMA’s, mostly because I knew he would be in trouble with his ott performance, but ABC had the 7 second button, everyone, remember that! They didn’t use it, even though they knew it was going to be OTT, they kept saying so as the program was advertised! The violent performance glorifying torture and dancers carrying guns that almost opened the show was the worst to me for the kids, and that was 8PM here on west coast, not almost 11PM like Adam’s. The kids should have been in bed! Gamma

  80. TO DIANE,
    I AGREE WITH YOU 100%…ITS THE ONLY THING I PLAY IN MY CAR SINCE HIS CD CAME OUT….IT IS AWESOME…..AND , I TOO, AM IN MY 60’S….
    YOUNGER PEOPLE…GET WITH THE PROGRAM….IT IS SUCH AN UP CD….EVERY SONG IS JUST GREAT.

  81. No. Anyone who has watched this highly talented and creative, Adam Lambert, in previous shows should have expected nothing less from showmanship to his raw unedited talent that should be embraced and not censured or criticized as he was. He is performing out the box that everyone wants until it happens then it’s said to be wrong. I believe America and the international world is ready will embrace Adam Lambert as well as Kris Allen to different but great performers.

    I’ve been around over 50yrs and the new talent of today is fantasic an cannot wait to see more…

  82. I am a 61 year old grandmother, have seen it all and heard it all. Adam is one of the most talented performers to come along in years. I don’t care if he is gay, I think his performance on AMA was entertainment value only.

    He is the Elvis of the milenium. He is also going to be an important role model for the gay community, although that isn’t his intention.

    I find it sad that society still thinks it is okay to watch violent movies, but let’s not watch anything to do with sexuality.

    As for Adam, there is no such thing as bad publicity in the entertainment world. He will rise above this and be around for a long time.

  83. I think you should let him sing because I think he’s an awesome singer. He rocks at everything, let him sing cause there’s nothing bad about him. I love his singing. Let him perform!

  84. Adam should not have been banned, he is an artist and extremely talented. Americans are always sensored. They should be trusted to make their own judgements. Let him perform and share his art and talent!

  85. let him sing on stage, good singer,but if he wants to be queer on stage-let it be one headed out of town,with all the other queers. spot light your talent, not your sickness.

  86. Phenominal singer. He’s just pushing the limits…whats up with ABC, didn’t they show Madonna and what’s her face kissing.

    HE’S AWESOME… ABC sucks!!!!

  87. I felt that it was a disgusting performance…I felt the same way a woman would feel if someone jump out at her and performed something unwanted……I recieved a a bad bad feeling to watch him…I wish I would of known I would of turned the tube off.

    I dont know if I can trust watching those types of shows anymore.

  88. I think he’s a loose canon and he wants to promote his homosexuality rather than his music. Which is sad.

  89. I think one of the reasons Simon is quitting American Idol…b/c obviously not only is Adam a loose cannon but others like him are going to be using the show..not only did he do something gross and offensive to the world at the AMA, he also, smeared Idol…instead of them fostering young unknown talent they are fostering well seasoned users…I am considering not watching Idol anymore depending upon this season and how they choose to select their prospective talent. Adam was not an unseasoned performer! he came with his deviant bag of goods to exploit the public with. He won!

  90. the proverbial big splash– gay party was held at the AMA. I never liked them (parties). I dont mind gays.I mind how they extremely flaunt there sexuality and their public over-the-top antics when it comes to sex. It is disgusting that Idol is have Ellen D. judge for Simon. As she saw nothing wrong with what Adam did. Why dont we just go to the “rest areas” on the side of the highways…you get the same shows there–nothing different, than what I saw on TV.

  91. I was for Adam Lambert all the way during the IDOL competition. I could not stop raving over this guy. Then he blew his performance on the AMA show. This is a good example of a novice celebrity becoming too self-assured too quickly. People say Madonna gets away with certain stage behavior, so, why can’t Adam? The answer to that question is because Madonna has earned the right to perform any way she pleases, due to her hard-earned, mega-stardom as a singer in the Industry. But Adam is new. He must be careful. He didn’t take his new celebrity-DOM with humble gratitude. Instead, he flaunted it in our faces. Also, his singing ability, which during IDOL was suberb, for the AMA show, leaped over the edge and became ‘hollaring’. The whole performance was what I’d call a mistake performance. Then Ellen gave him an opportunity to redeem himself, apologize to the world, and he did not. He said he was having a good time up there on the stage. So, he blew it twice. Here’s what needs to happen: Adam should make a statement to America, such as: “I apologize if I offended anyone, and I now see that my performance might have done so.” Then America needs to forgive him and get over this episode. And lastly, Adam Lambert should continue to perform, having learned many lessons. His destiny is to sing! Beryl Shaw, fiction writer. berylshaw.com.

  92. TO BERYL SHAW,
    IF YOU HAVE BEEN WATCHING ANY OF THE SHOWS AFTER THE AMA YOU WOULD HAVE HEARD HIS RESPONSES….I DON’T THINK HE WILL EVER PULL A STUNT LIKE THAT AGAIN ON NATIONAL TV BUT HE WASN’T GOING TO APOLOGIZE FOR WHO HE IS. IT WAS JUST ABOUT 11:00PM AND THEY WERE PUSHING HIS PERFORMANCE ON THE AMA ALL NIGHT. IT WAS ADAM LAMBERT…HE WAS DIFFERENT FROM DAY 1 IF YOU WERE WATCHING AI. HE DOES HAVE A TERRIFIC VOICE AND HIS CD IS AWESOME….. HE IS HIS OWN PERSON AND I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE HIM IN PERSON.
    REGARDING HIS VOICE THAT NIGHT, HE ADMITTED HE WAS VERY NERVOUS. CUT THE GUY SOME SLACK…PLEASE….

  93. I think he is a great singer. What did he do that Madonna has not done (even when she wasn’t well known back in the 80’s)? Just because he is gay means nothing. We are in 2010 people….live and let live.

  94. Not to be misunderstood, I continue to be an Adam Lambert fan. My message to him is to learn by his mistakes. We all make them. The world wants to see more of Adam Lambert, not less. I definitely think he should sing on the next award show, and I’ll bet his act will be a whole other performance. Absolutely over-the-top great! Beryl Shaw

  95. American Idol in my mind is an all american person, who is givin a chance to show their singing talent. Kids whatch them on TV and are inspired to try to reach their dream, even if it means making a fool of your self trying. Adam tarnishes it. Madonna would not have dressed or acted so risky if she was in American Idol. Cancel Adam till he can clean up his act.

  96. JAN S…..GET IN THE REAL WORLD…THIS IS 2010. YOUNG KIDS SHOULD NOT BE UP WATCHING TV AT 11:00 ON A SUNDAY NIGHT. HE WILL CLEAN UP HIS ACT. WHAT DID HE DO THAT WAS SOOOO WRONG…HE KISSED A GUY….SO WHAT HE’S GAY…..HE ACTED OUT HIS SONG…..BIG DEAL…..ELVIS GYRATED ON NATIONAL TV AND THEY CUT HIM OFF AT THE WASTE…..BIG DEAL…..HE WENT ON TO A GREAT CAREER AND SO WILL ADAM….

    • Whats wrong? He grind the dancers face and then kissed him. Yes, kids have the right to be up to watch decent television.

  97. I feel that Adam Lambert has a done nothing to deserve canceling his interview and he deserves a chance, personally I have seen worse on daytime TV or the music videos, i feel that yes maybe it offended some folks, but if you check out shows on today, lambert was mild. he didnt remove clothes, not like soaps, they are down right dirty at times.so should we banned them all from interviews, no turn it off, block it,change the channel. thanks rose

  98. rose here again, the games on video, our so violent, blood, guts, and the public is worried about ama show , come on, its ok to introduce the violents,but this is ok get real ,hearing some songs with lyrics that my mother would wash my mouth out for,its not music. well i think i got the point across. good night all..and thanks for reading. rose

  99. Definately. He got his fame and forture from the American Idol show. of which is voted on by mostly a teenage audience. Why make dirty gestures out of a good performance. Also feel Steven Tyler should watch his mouth, although he is bleeped, the kids still knows what he is saying. Why ruin a nice family show.

  100. No … Not appropriate for a morning office. the term idol holds with it a responsibility .. more than "I can do whatever I want" but I care about my audience so much that I will adjust to the audience … just because I am a responsible adult.

  101. Another important part is that if you are a senior citizen, travel insurance with regard to pensioners is something you should make sure you really consider. The old you are, the greater at risk you will be for having something terrible happen to you while in another country. If you are never covered by several comprehensive insurance coverage, you could have several serious issues. Thanks for giving your suggestions on this blog.

  102. Ban him! We need more encouraging and wholesome role models. I agree with ABC’s decision, too much to stomach first thing in the morning. There is enough of these outrageous shows and over the top short of pornagrphy series on night time TV. He may be talented, but not all talent is approprite for the majority.
