Adam, you changed television history! But is it for the best?

Hey, Adam Lambert — your racy performance at the Nov. 22 “American Music Awards” didn’t just get people buzzing — it actually got ABC to change its policies when it comes to live performances! Disney will now be forcing performers to sign contracts to ensure that they don’t change their routines between rehearsal and their live televised performance. No more surprises!

“We certainly don’t want to suppress artistry at any level,” says Anne Sweeney, co-chairwoman of Disney Media Networks and president of the Disney-ABC Television Group. “But we also have to be very cognizant of who our audience is.”

Adam’s infamous performance — during which he simulated multiple sexual acts with his male and female backup dancers — got a lot of people pretty riled up, including the Parents Television Council. And the backlash continued, as ABC’s “Good Morning America” canceled one of Adam’s scheduled concerts. In response to the entire ordeal, Adam told CBS’ “Early Show”: “I’m not a babysitter!”

Get real like folks haven’t ever had or done fellatio before. What’s all the commotion about? The guy’s head is actually in Adam’s stomach, not his crotch anyway. And it isn’t like we haven’t seen that move done on live tv or even on night time shows or on live music awards. They are only on him because he is gay. Which is cowardly. I thought Adam Lambert’s performance was total edge and current and what happens in real life at clubs and undergrounds and parties. I bet the folks who had a problem are all ready uptight about sex anyway.
