Highly talented fellow, who may have just ruined his chances of super stardom.
I wasn't a fan BEFORE his performance. And he just ruined any chance of me ever becoming one. What an idiot.

"The View" mentioned Adam and Lady Ga GA in the first few minutes of the HOT TOPICS this morning and Barbra also mentioned he will be on her special which will be aired I believe on December 6th.

Two words: ugh and ich. Very sad for such a talented performer. His lack of maturity and wisdom very apparent with this terrible "performance". He did keep his clothes on, no stripping. And what were all those "things" slithering around on the floor in front of him? Anyway, the whole AMA show was trash, not watchable, so guess he fit right in apparently. Maybe we should have another look at Chris Allen. At least he is clean and decent.

That's what I thought too. Kids like to watch that awards show and the performance he gave was not for kids to see. There were other too, but this one stood out as being particularly offensive.

I'm tired of artists and musicians placing so much value on "shock." So the heck what? If I want to be shocked and disturbed, I can watch the nightly news. I turn to musicians for entertainment and that was not entertainment last night. The only performances of the entire evening that were not completely degenerate were Whitney Houston, Kelly Clarkson, and Keith Urban (the latter two, I don't even care for, but at least they were clean). I'm really sick to death of the humping and grunting. Is that what great music is in the minds of our youth. Disgusting.

People are shocked by Adam's performance and I was too, but when I stop and think about it in the context of the entire show, well, how much worse was he than the others? Not much.

I also feel betrayed by Adam's nice, sweet, let's-all-get-along demeanor, promoting mutual tolerance -- and then he does a performance that is so completely offensive to normal sensibilities. You can either shock or unite, Adam, but you can't do both. Grow up.

It's evidence of how far off track these kids are when they think a performance like that is okay to do in front of their mothers!

I have to agree with you on this one. Even though my kids they are not young children, they are my children 17, 20 and 23. It was offensive.
It was the shock factor alright.

True. I still love Adam, but he did cross a boundary with me last night. Like I said, 3 or so things of that performance could of been left out and it still would of been a good performance. There is a time and a place for it. Not on national t.v. Maybe in a club like he said....an x rated club


I agree that the whole music awards had more distasteful performances than tasteful

100% right on!

I kept wondering who's crotch was going to gyrate next. And what kind of funky, tacky, revealing-wardrobe-malfunctioning get-up, the next celeb would come out in.

Has it really come down to this? Where's the mystery? Where's the pure talent? Here's a newsflash for the "entertainers" out there who have become clueless. IT'S NO LONGER A TURN-ON!!!!!!!!! It (gyrating, etc.) has become a ridiculous cliche!!!!!!!!!

EW's Michael Slezak:

"But the bottom line is that Adam’s AMA performance felt less like a genuine expression of his high-octane sexuality (so playfully erotic when he fondled the mic stand during “Whole Lotta Love” this summer), and more like a carefully planned stab at dominating the post-AMA blogosphere/water-cooler discussion. I’m certainly no prude…the idea of saucy boy-on-boy/boy-on-girl/boy-on-not-quite-sure action does not rattle my cage — certainly not at 10:55 p.m. on a school night. And yet, what’s sad is that unlike, say, a J.Lo or even a Rihanna, Adam could’ve had tongues wagging just from his vocals alone. Instead, that golden voice took a backseat tonight at the AMAs, and I’m not sure exactly who was occupying the driver’s seat."

Adam Lambert at the AMAs: Simulated fellatio, bikini-area snapping, and makeout sessions. But what about the vocals? | EW.com

"I have to say, however, that as a TV viewer, I thought Lambert’s performance was a gas, a delight, a blast of brash vulgarity in the midst of merely ordinary vulgarity."

Was anyone else surprised at Carrie Underwood's performance as well? The dancers were behaving very similarly to Adam and his dancers. That surprised me given her usually very wholesome image. Also, was she wearing the dress that Carol Hannah on Project Runway designed for fashion week? I need to rewatch the finale and see, but it certainly looked like the same dress. I hope so because I really wanted Carol Hannah to win instead of Irina.

A real class act...! Maybe that's why he has been, will be a second place finisher for the remainder of his short career.

I find it interesting how some people can overlook his overt jestures on national television, however if he pulled the same crap in "public" he would be arrested....a role model....I think not !

He should return to Venice Beach....they lost their idiot !
