Good Morning America Cancels Adam Lambert Concert
TV Newser ^ | 11/24/09 | Chris Ariens

Posted on 11/24/2009 9:31:49 AM PST by raccoonradio

First on TVNewser: American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert won't be appearing on "Good Morning America" tomorrow.

TVNewser has learned ABC News canceled the concert after Lambert's sexually charged performance at the American Music Awards Sunday night. Lambert led men on leashes, dragged a woman by her foot, and smashed a man's head into his crotch, all while singing his new single "For Your Entertainment."

ABC, which aired the awards show, received about 1,500 phone calls from people complaining about the performance, a number ABC calls "moderate."

An ABC News spokesperson tells TVNewser, "given his controversial live performance on the AMAs we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning."

Lambert performed as part of GMA's summer concert series in August, and it was in a "20/20" interview that Lambert came out, telling Chris Connelly, "I am gay, and I'm very comfortable with it."

Given his behavior,maybe he and George Michael (of Wham! fame)
can tour together.....they seem to be cut from the same cloth.

Good. Get Kris Allen to replace him or Kelly Clarkston, Kellie Pickler, or Carrie Underwood. Any of them would be better. During the show I could not stand Kellie Pickler but she has completely changed 100 percent since leaving the show.

Yup, gotta be careful what you watch, my new flatscreen is too special to be “gay’d up” by watching that crap. I think the only thing I even watch on ABC nowadays is Jeopardy.

So it's not OK to put leashes on terrorists (torture) but it is OK to put them on gay performers on live TV....I see......

Usually it’s no-talent hacks who use shock and controversy to be in the news and sell whatever they’re selling. The sad thing is that Adam does have a great deal of talent, but his heart is so full of hatred for non-gay America, that he can’t help himself.

Notice how liberals tell everybody not to do or say anything “offensive” in order to shut up the opposition, then go out of their way to offend Christian America? What a bunch of hypocrites!

Gave up watching that kind of stuff years ago (what are they on, every week?) Friend of mine’s a movie buff and the Oscars are a must for him. I don’t really watch, other than poss. seeing a few seconds while switching channels (it usually winds up during the part when they’re paying tribute to
those who’ve passed on). Why, as I don’t like most of the movies out there now? Saw Cadillac Records in Feb., Pirate Radio a couple weeks back, and prob. Fantastic Mr Fox
next week, but other than that, what kind of movies are
worth it? And why watch the narcissism and politics the Oscars usually have?

Not that I approve of this sort of thing, but I’d almost have liked to have seen that. But not enough to look for it on youtube. It becomes harder and harder to shock, doesn’t it?

This is a shame because he is so talented he doesn’t need the schtick.
However, most of that performance was choreograhed. abc had to sign off on it so they are to blame as well. I hope Adam learns from this.

i disagree... i've seen GM in concert, and his performances were not like that... his private life--i suppose... but he's at least had success not only as a performer, but also as a songwriter... George Michael was smart enough to know that many of his fans were female...

Adam Lambert “acted stupidly.”

I watched it on YouTube (been pulled due to a copyright complaint) and it was debasing, juvenile garbage.

A more appropriate title would have been, “A Cry for Help.”

The most interesting thing about the Lambert AMA performance was that ABC didn’t edit it for the west-coast feed. That means approval.

We couldn't see Lucy pregnant because we might figure out that she had “SEX”. Now, on network TV, Adam Lambert can simulate getting a blow-job by other guys on stage, while another, sticking his tongue out, is about to poke him from behind. Then, performs a full mouthal deep kiss with another man...... I didn't watch it all, there might be more degenerate behavior. It's “just” another lifestyle.... right? It's “normal”, really it is. (sarc)

I thought it was about the actions of consenting adults in private. Yet here it is taught in public schools to children and litigated in the workplace and on ABC-Disney TV.

So the claim was nuthin’ but a big lie.

No biggie....Madonna has been doing these same things since the 80s.... ;)

Yes, if it presents Christianity in a positive light, condemns abortion, mentions a fetus has a heartbeat, or challenges Obama's policies.

Lambert’s prancing aside, the song, and the singing, was horrendous.

I'm a fan of singing and a long-time viewer of American Idol. It's been one of the few shows we could watch together with our kids without cringing at inappropriate language or actions.

Some of the singers over the years really are talented. Just think of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, etc. Watching the singers mature in style over the competition is big part of AI's appeal.

So last year I watched AI, and this guy Adam Lambert really was a special singer. Incredible range, creative interpretations of songs. Gay as a rainbow flag, but it never was an issue--he was not overtly gay, not in-your-face. If you're not familiar with Lambert, go to Youtube and watch him sing Tracks of My Tears by Smokey Robinson. It's a beautiful performance of a great song.

So with every intention of buying Lambert's CD for my wife for Christmas, I see his performance on the AMAs. It is APPALLING. He has two men on dog leashes. He pulls one of the men's faces into his crotch and moves his pelvis to simulate fellatio. He makes out with his male guitarist.

Totally over the top, totally queer, totally in-your-face. Now if Adam Lambert wants to sing in Gay Revues and nightclubs and S&M bars, he can knock himself out. But if he wants to appeal to straight, Christian folks who tolerate but do not approve of homosexuality, he needs a new manager. I don't refuse to listen to Elton John--or Cole Porter, for that matter--because of their sexual choices. But I won't have it thrown in my face.

And I will NOT buy the CD. Two cheers for GMA for pulling his act.

This was probably too long, but I've written it, so now I'll post it.

I was reading an interview of Adam, the name of the magazine escapes me, but the interviewer said Adam’s publicist told him to keep the questions about his career and not try to be “too gay”, almost that Adam doesn’t want to be seen as a fluky gay singer and wants his music to speak for itself. The interviewer was peeved about this, I’m assuming because bedroom discussion is far more entertaining and sells more magazines.

I never got the vibe from him that he wanted to be a gay icon. In fact, he went forever without officially “outing” himself. And he still never seemed comfortable as being the gay dude from American Idol.

Because of that article, I wonder if his performance had more to do with his handlers wanting him to be more gay after the gay mafia presented some backlash from the interview. Not to blame everyone BUT him. He clearly went overboard with his sexuality. But he doesn’t have the final say in the performance. There are others to blame in addition to him.

Don’t get me wrong...I think “Father Figure” was the best song George Michael ever did.But he has misbehaved in public
and was arrested more than once for lewd behavior while in men’s restrooms.Just sayin’.

Actually, he was being himself at the AMA awards. If one looks at his behavior in his personal life, one realizes, he is a degenerate with a lot of problems. He likely will end up like Boy George or Britney Spears.
