Adam Lambert On The American Music Awards: The Most Controversial Television Performance Since Janet Jackson's Wardrobe Malfunction?

Was Adam Lambert's sexually graphic stage show on the American Music Awards the most controversial television performance since Janet Jackson's infamous wardrobe malfunction during the Super Bowl? During the performance, former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert absolutely shocked the American Music Awards audience by shoving the faces of his dance team members into his crotch, leading others around on dog leashes and delivering a passionate on-stage kiss to his male keyboard player. His performance was so unprecedented that is has had all of America talking for days. In fact, shortly after the performance it was the most trending topic on Twitter, and it has continued to light up the Twittersphere for days.


Just watch the video of his performance posted at the end of this article.

Some are even comparing his performance to a modern day "Sodom and Gomorrah".

So is Lambert apologetic for his graphic performance?

Apparently not.

Adam Lambert is saying that he got "carried away" but that he does not see "anything wrong" with his performance in front of the American Music Awards.

"I would sing it a little better," Lambert said in an interview about the performance. "It wasn't my best vocal performance."

ABC cancelled Adam Lambert's appearance on Wednesday's "Good Morning America" after complaints from viewers poured in to the network regarding Lambert's sexually graphic performance on the American Music Awards.

In explaining why Lambert's performance was cancelled, an ABC News spokeswoman said this: "Given his controversial live performance on the AMA's, we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning."

It appears that many Americans agree with ABC.

In fact, when a New York Daily News poll asked, "Do you think Adam went too far with his performance?" approximately two-thirds of the respondents agreed.

So what do you think?
