ABC has called off Adam Lambert's Wednesday morning concert following his controversial performance on the ABC-aired American Music Awards Sunday night. CBS has picked him up, however.
During that Sunday performance, he simulated oral sex, had a dancer on a leash, flipped the bird and kissed a male band member. Lambert has since defended his act, while ABC has fielded thousands or angry calls.
A spokesperson for ABC said, "Given his controversial American Music Awards performance, we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning."
Meanwhile CBS announced that Lambert will perform Wednesday and sit for an interview on "The Early Show," which airs at the same time as GMA.
