Video: Adam Lambert's Controversial AMA Performance

Video: Adam Lambert's Controversial AMA Performance

By Robert Paul Reyes


Adam Lambert achieved fame in the family-friendly "American Idol" show. AI is one of the few programs that the whole family can watch together without embarrassing granny or exposing the kids to inappropriate material.
Last night Lambert  has his biggest post-Idol gig performing on the American Music Awards. The AMAs  is also family friendly fare, it`s must see TV for the whole family.
Lambert has maintained his wide appeal that cuts across all demographics in spite of coming out of the closet. But Lambert`s raunchy AMA performance has put his mainstream appeal into jeopardy. During last night`s performance Lambert kissed one of his male dancers and grabbed another male dancer and pressed his face into his crotch.
A guy kissing a guy should be no big deal, but the simulated oral sex stunt was raunchy, and completely out of place in a show that is viewed by children and teens.
I`m a big Adam Lambert fan, but one more of thes attention-grabbing stunts and I will kick him to the curb.
