Adam Lambert Turns Up for AMA Rehearsals
- Quote :
Gearing up to take his act to the big stage, Adam Lambert arrived at the Nokia theatre for the American Music Awards rehearsals on Thursday (November 19).
Decked out in his typical glammed-up garb, the "American Idol" alum is among the many stars on the docket for the AMAs - which air on Sunday night (November 22).
With his new album due out on November 23rd, it was just recently announced that “Good Morning America” has also nabbed Mr Lambert for “a live, free, intimate concert on November 25 as part of GMA’s Fall Concert Series.”
The gig comes two days after his much anticipated debut album, “For Your Entertainment,” hits store shelves on Monday, November 23.

LOS ANGELES (November 23, 2009) – The Parents Television Council® responded to last night’s broadcast of the “American Music Awards” on ABC calling the show “tasteless” and “vulgar” and asking members to contact ABC, Dick Clark Productions, and the show’s advertisers with complaints. In those areas where the explicit material aired before 10 pm, PTC members are being urged to contact the FCC.
While the costumes and profanity throughout the broadcast were enough to alarm any reasonable parent, the final performance by Adam Lambert of “American Idol” fame included everything from S&M bondage with the singer leading leather-clad male performers around on leashes to another dancer simulating oral sex on Lambert. The show aired live at 8 pm ET/7 pm CT and was given a TV-14 L rating. The oral sex scene was edited out of the West Coast broadcast.
Adam Lambert Says AMA Kiss Was 'In The Moment'

Just last week, the editor-in-chief of the gay magazine Out was lamenting that Adam Lambert's handlers were allegedly trying to ease the out-and-proud singer back into the closet a bit. While Lambert told the gay magazine to chill, he seemed intent on sending a strong message on Sunday night with his pan-sexually charged performance of the title track from his debut album, For Your Entertainment.
In addition to dragging a female dancer around by the ankles, pushing a male dancer's head into his crotch and simulating oral sex, walking a pair of male hoofers around like dogs on a leash, and furiously thrusting his hips at every opportunity, Lambert took a moment mid-song to fervently make out with (an allegedly straight) male keyboard player. After the jaw-dropping performance, Lambert told CNN that the forceful smooch was "in the moment" and was not a planned part of his routine.
Adam Lambert AMA performance: Why he struck a nerve where Madonna, Britney didn't

Last night, "American Idol's" designated shock star, Adam Lambert, did his best to steal the headlines at the "American Music Awards." And while Taylor Swift's big win may have given her the most ink in the more staid areas of the press, in the wild, wild west of the bloggosphere, it's all Adam, all the time.
Not that much of the talk is exactly encouraging.
"Caterwauling 101," cried one of the endless outraged viewers who've crammed the comment sites following Lambert's gyrating performance.
