Openly Gay Singer Raises Brows with Performance

Ad Feedback

Good Morning America cancelled a concert with former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert after a risqué performance over the weekend.

Lambert was scheduled to appear on the show Wednesday, but complaints have poured into ABC over the singer's vulgar performance at Sunday night's American Music Awards.

During the nationally broadcast, Lambert-- who's openly gay-- simulated sex with a male backup dancer and kissed another male musician.

ABC edited the show for its west coast feed, but in other parts of the country thousands watched the live, unedited version.

So far, nearly 2,000 angry viewers have complained to the network.  In response to the controversy, Lambert responded, "It's 2009. It's time to take more risks."

"It's about entertainment. People want to be surprised," he added. "It's too bad that people are so scared."

CBN News spoke with Dan Isett of the Parents Television Council about Lambert's performance. Many in the homosexual community say Lambert is being held to a higher standard. But are the protests rooted in discrimination?
