Adam Lambert‘s raunchy, crotch-grabbing, oral-sex-simulating performance on the Nov. 22 American Music Awards, has proven too much for the producers of Good Morning America. The racy American Idol runner-up’s highly anticipated appearance on the morning show has just been cancelled. “Given his controversial live performance on the AMAs, we were concerned about airing a similar performance so early in the morning,” an ABC news spokesperson told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
An insider tells HollywoodLife.com, “His performance was simply not appropriate for morning television; he has appeared on ABC many times before. He even came out on 20/20. Even so, this was not a hard decision [for ABC].”
And we’ve learned first that CBS’ Early Show has booked Lambert for tomorrow and Adam will be performing live on the show. Another TV insider tells us NBC’s Today show would be “interested in having Lambert on this week.” Fridays are traditionally Today‘s big music mornings and you might see him live there, too!
ABC has already taken considerable heat for Lambert’s shocking and impromptu performance — they’ve received over 1500 complaints, which the network has termed “a moderate response.” However, the Parents Television Council, a TV watchdog group, was hopping mad about Adam’s performance and issued a statement to HollywoodLife.com in which they slammed ABC for being “tasteless” and “vulgar,” for letting Adam simulate oral sex and bondage. “American teenagers — and especially teenage girls — are literally under siege by the entertainment media. It is outrageous that children today cannot watch a televised awards program.”
