ABC should be ‘Lambert’asted for finale of American Music AwardsNov 23rd, 2009 | By Zach | Category: Blogs, Featured Articles, Opinions
I saw the performance “all of America will be talking about tomorrow” for the finale of the 2009 American Music Awards, and I think America will be talking about boycotting ABC advertisers because of the offensive and tasteless crotch-fondling (and faux-blow jobbing) performance of Adam Lambert. Somehow, I doubt that is the response they were looking for.
It is amazing how clueless some TV executives can be (and this was from Disney-owned ABC). Did they really think America wants to see a musical enactment of gay bondage? Out of all the classy performers featured during the evening, they decided to end it with Adam Lambert (who I had never heard of before, and frankly never hope to hear from again)? How about Whitney Houston? Or Green Day? Even Lady Gaga seemed classy in comparison to Lambert, and she performed in a light-up Halloween costume vest and athletic tape.
I was in total disgust throughout the performance, and I was happy to see the Los Angeles audience was just as horrified. A few people clapped, but it was very quiet for such a huge audience that had been so enthusiastic through the night.
Shame on you, ABC. That performance was a revoltingly disgusting choice. Here’s hoping some sponsors pull their ads from your programs. You deserve a good lambasting for that one.
