Holy cannoli, the Ministry of Gossip's comments are going wild over Adam Lambert's, ahem, unique performance of his tune "For Your Entertainment" on the 2009 American Music Awards.

Folks are either "What the??" or "Oh yeah!"

So the Ministry's Division of Absolutely Accurate Online Statistics is jumping into research mode.

What did you think of the number, which aired on prime-time network TV? If you didn't see it,and if the younger kids aren't still around, you might want to buckle your seat belt before voting and watch the video of the performance -- after the jump.

We're keeping it there so it doesn't bite any of the other posts.

Innappropriate for prime time.

SO wrong.

And, I am a gay marriage supporter.

if a straight male had done the same with a female, the world would be up in arms.

This was a calculated maneuver by Lambert to generate controversy.

agree with mikey d's comment.
Adam was definitely trying too hard and it came off a little silly - way too much.
he didn't have to go to those lengths to make an impact.
Performance did not highlight his voice.
Adam - be smarter about it next time.

I think Adam lambert just lost half of his fan's because what he did most normal people just do not want see his public display of gay kissing, he has talent and can sing and I think he is putting way too much focus on the gay stuff, ok if u want to be gay that's ur choice but don't force us to like it or watch it, people today just don't want to see two men slobbering all over each other no matter who u are, when me and my finacee' where watching amercian idol we both where wondering why Adam has not already been out and we both thought he should have already been a star and now we see why, he is gonna ruin his career before it ever gets started doing performances like that!!!!! Adam please tone it down on award shows!! U can sing let us hear that!!!!

Repulsive! This should have been screened and NOT ALLOWED. I waited all evening to see him perform and was extremely disgusted and disappointed.

Two words Train Wreck. The audience didn't even know what the heck to think. I sat with my hands over my mouth. I love edge....but that was just poop.

I love Adam Lambert. This performace though, was a mess. Whatever he was trying to accomplish failed. Not a good way to start out, pal. His crass attempt to "shock" people totally overshadowed his amazing artistry and vocals which were shaky at best. That last too long note he screamed out didin't to anything to redeem the performance either. Sad. I'm embarassed that I was such and advocate for Adam!

I agree with this posting:

"I was such an Adam Lambert fan until tonight. Tonight, I was embarrassed for him. Adam you are so much better than that! I can only hope this is a blip in your career." Posted by: Mel | Nov 22, 2009 at 10:22 PM

I watched the show last nite simply to see Adams performance and have to say that I was a little disappointed by it overall and not because of the theme or routine he chose, but because I felt that he didnt sing as well as I have heard him before. I also thought that the studio version of the song sounded much better than the live one did and even tho its an ok pop song I expected better from him for a debut single. It appeared to me that he was a little nervous and wasnt in the zone during that performance. His act didnt offend or shock me as it really wasnt any different than what alot of others are doing but really wasnt necessary. We all know you're gay Adam and nobody cares--just relax and SING please! dl

OMG Adam you just gave a huge FU to all the fans who loved you for being the sweet guy from Idol!!!! You are a fake and nothing more then a crude porn want to be!!!!
I was a HUGE fan, loved loved loved you!! Your voice is amazing (except for last night that is) why didn't you get out there and show the world how you can sing!!!!??????
I spent over $100 for my 14 yr old daughter to dress up as you for Halloween!!! She has worshiped you!!!! We have been counting down the days for your CD to come out and now neither one of us want it!!!!
And to you posters that want to know "what kind of parent lets a 12 yr old stay up that late on a school night".....a parent that has thought of Adam as a nice guy, maybe even a roll model, that he PRETENDED to be on Idol!!!!
Adam, I'm SO dissapointed!! And no it's not discrimination, I think when the girls like Britany and Madonna do this kind of stuff they are pigs too, it's supposed to be a SINGING show not a porn show! Adam knows how many little girls were huge fans and he just spit on them all!!!
Hoping this puts your career in the toilet!

All I can say is where are the morals today ??? Young or old we should not be accepting things like this on tv or anywhere. This country is changing for the worse and it needs to change. Its sad when people don't get shocked about things like that. Adam lambert's performance was definitely porn...

oh please, if this had been a girl on girl kiss no one would have batted an eye. It's funny how artists such as Brittany Spears, Maddonna, and other female artist can simulate sex and Katey Perry can sing about kissing a girl and likig it and the audience eats it up. In fact the sexier and sleazer female artist appear to be the more the public loves them, but when a guy gets rauchy or kisses a man it's all inappropriate. Seems like a double standard to me.
As far as the vocals go, just about every artist was off because the sound was sooo messed up.

I think his performance was offensive and crude. It was on ABC primetime with Young children watching. There is a place for that crude and nasty behavior and TV is not that place.

It was just as gross when Britney, Madonna, etc did the same thing. No one is saying it wasn't. Go back and look at posts from their performances.

He is tasteless and disgusting and he will not be famous for long. He is just another Clay Aiken. People don't like this kind of stuff and his name will be forgotten.

You actually have to become really famous before you throw one of these so called "shock" performances at the world. Way to go...your an embarrassment!

Uh, wow.

I think he was trying too hard to push the limit. He just took it too far, there was no need for all that, especially when he's usually such a fantastic singer without it.

His voice was totally off, and the performance crossed the line from provacative to trashy.

Sorry, Adam. :/

eh, the "outrageous" behaviour wasn't all that. i didn't think the choreography was good at all and adam lambert was very stiff doing it. that was disappointing. other than that, he kissed a guy. so? *yawn*

Too much screaming! I like it when he just sings slow ballads. That song seemed to have only had one line and a bunch of yelling.

Provocative.

@Becca--I believe he was probably flipping off the editor of OUT magazine. Long story.

As a mature creative adult I loved Adam's ability, at times, to be alluring, mysterious and thought provoking while proving his amazing musical talents. What happened last night was the sign of a pig using the stage in naughty boy fantasy in a raunchy performance that likely left most viewers cringing, nauseous and shaking their heads. I hope he has had his fill of this game to shock and can move on with an actual musical career.

Wow Adam - how disappointing - you are so much better than that. I felt sick after that performance last night - it's one thing to be gay but quite another to throw it in everyone's face - that performance belonged in a circus freakshow act! My 13 year old daughter is infatuated with you and after that performance I am worried about the backlash she will get at the school she attends. Kids were already making fun of her for being such a huge fan of yours - writing "gay" and "fag" on pictures of you which are plastered all over her notebooks. I'm so worried about what will happen today - thanks for being such a huge embarrassment - what does YOUR mother think?

Adam's performance was creepy at the AMA's, his voice sounded horrible. He needs people around him who will tell him the truth! That performance was a caberat act and should have been for adults only!

OMG WT??? I was such a huge Adam fan..... All I can say is, WHO IS YOUR MANAGER? I think he needs to step back from all the glam for a min and take a good look at what got him this far in the first place...your voice! I am sad that I mad my kids watch this with me last night...as they would say on American Idol..WHAT A TRAIN WRECK!!!! Sorry Adam, you blew it big time!!!

Loved the porn show last night, er I mean the AMA's. When did ABC become a pay-per-view channel? -remind me to block it.

Without a doubt, Adam Lambert has talent. I followed him through American Idol thinking he would be wonderful cast as Elvis. I loved Chris, too, and I knew that no matter who won, each would have a future. However, last night's performance was just plain raunchy, and the song seemed angry. What was he trying to prove? There's a difference between "sexy" and "disgusting". OK, Adam, so you're gay. Who cares? I'm all for equal rights, and I will defend your sexual preferences to the end. With all your talent, I think this one was just "not your best".

That performance was positively at the bottom of the barrel for something in prime time with millions of little kids watching. For God's sake, grow up, man and take some responsibility for what you do. I was disgusted both by him and by the AMA's for letting that happen. If I'd been on the cameras, the tv aucience would have immediately been watching the floor or the crowd----ANYTHING but that performance. Unbelievably irresponsible on both Lambert's and the AMA's parts

Also---all you people saying it's ok because Brittany and Madonna have done the same? It's not ok. It wasn't ok when they did it and it's not OK now. No wonder society is in so much trouble, if y'all think this is ok.

Too bad Adam chose this performance as his post idol prime time debut. The song is really weak, his vocals flat as ice, and honestly I was expecting something much better from him. It was not exciting, it was ridiculously over the top...I was not grossed out by it, but it was just immature, I have to wonder what was he thinking and who advised him? Reminded me of Madonna, and who needs another one of her! I was a big fan, if this kind imitative stuff keeps up, I will have to leave the Glambert fold....

Sorry Adam, did not work..

This performance might be great for Vegas or other Clubs but not Prime Time with children and old ladies tuned in to see Taylor and all the fashion statements.

In all seriousness, he just lost me as a fan and I have been on board since he showed up on Idol. I know he has been around awhile but not in my neighborhood.

Sorry you felt you had to be so offensive Adam.
