Adam Lambert at the AMA

I just watched Adam's performance, and I am under-impressed.
He did exactly what everybody expected him to do, emphasizing the shocking and the outrageous, instead of his voice.

I think he would have been better served to showcase his amazing pipes, instead of playing the Madonna card, as if he had nothing else to offer..

I was not slightly impressed with him. I don't keep up with AI really, so this is the first time I saw him perform. I was like WTF? and my BF asked me who the hell was screaming..

I was like this during his entire performance. I am actually surprised ABC would air Adam simulating oral sex with a guy. It was obscene. I was not impressed by his vocal performance either, but it was probably due to nerves.

What bugs me is that he has a ton of talent, more than half the people in the room; he does not need cheap tricks, or people to be talking about his act. They should be saying "wow, what a voice".
I think he had a huge opportunity, closing the AMAs, and he blew it (no pun intended).

No, she is actually trying to say Louboutin, but she is too new-money-gutter-trash-poseur to be able to pronounce it properly.

Won't someone please kill her!

I am sorry, she is just awful. The outfit, the music, her acting...

I saw her in person at a mall in Vegas - she looked like she slept in a ditch. She was wearing a short skirt, all wrinkled and stained (!!!), scuffed (double !!) white high heel pumps, and my personal pet peeve - she looked like she had not washed her hair in a month (for WHATEVER reason she seems to think this is a good look for her, as she sports it often).

Rant over.

Totally agree with this.

Jennifer Lopez is an idiot and yes, I saw her fall. I love watching people fall. HAHA!

He was the runner-up on the last season of American Idol.

Fail. Seriously.

When I think of gay performers I think of Elton John and all his greatness, but this guy just reminds me of another attention craving male version of Britney Spears.

Complain about the stereotypes that people have of you, but then reinforce them on national television by 1. Getting an "air" job, 2. Grabbing a girls vajahjah 3. Making out with someone in the middle of your act. Not to mention that the singing was D level.

My best friend is gay. I feel depressed just knowing how this media representation portrays him as part of that group.

Yeah I caught the part of the grabbing of the vajayjay. That was even more disgusting than the "air" job to me. Thats soft core porn. I'm not a prude either but seriously... Where do we draw the limit? Pretty soon on regular primetime tv it will just be people having straight out sex.
I watched it with no sound because I was at work, So I cant comment on the vocals. I was a fan of his and I was expecting something a little better.

He is young and flamey. I was not surprised, although it looked really contrived in a Madonna sort of way. IE, it appeared as if he had some sort of agenda to shock and that is boring, to me anyway. Perhaps he should save it for his own show rather than the Diznee network.

I was really unimpressed with his song, just boring and repetitive IMO...I was expecting better from him.

I didn't see the AMAs, but I absolutely LOVE his voice and he's an amazing talent. I'm bummed to read that he did such a shitty job, and didn't focus on his singing


ETA: Just watched a really crappy youtube vid of it.

I attended the AMA and was so shocked at his performance! His performance/song sucked and kinda offensive, IMO. Lady Gaga performance was AMMMAZZZING live!!! So was Whitney Houston- I almost cried watching her perform; it was very touching!! They could've used any of those two performances as the closing act.

I just watched Adam Lambert's performance on YouTube. I've never seen him perform before and, after that, I don't think I'll watch him again. He sucked.

His album is not what I was expecting for style at all! I loved his version of Mad World on american idol, I was hoping for more of that. There are a handful of good songs on it

That was incredibly awful, distasteful, and just plain awkward. The awkwardness of it reminds me a lot of that terrible Britney performance at the VMAs a few years ago - it is painful to watch.

I've never seen him before (I don't watch American idol or listen to the radio much) and I doubt I will again.

^This.

I LOVED him on AI and I'm just so sad that he's stooped to this! In his post performance interview, he said it was for "shock" and that he kindof just went with the moment. WTH. I think it's disrespectful to his performers to put them in that awkward position (whether they are gay or not...some may NOT have wanted to totally put that out there!) Not to mention that he is a performer who has been put in this position by HIS FANS...and I believe (IMO!) that he has totally shot himself in the foot with this. Parents whose children voted for him probably will not want their kids going to a show where they have no idea what their kids will see. (I wouldn't want to either for that matter!) Too racy too soon.

GMA cancelled his performance with them already. UPDATED: ABC 'Good Morning America' Cancels Adam Lambert's Performance - News - Yahoo! TV

Anyhoo...hopefully he'll get the appropriate professional advice with this & get it figured out. He's amazing.
