Adam Lambert to appear on 'The View' next Thursday [Updated]
Adam Lambert just tweeted that he's going to be appearing on "The View," which ABC confirms.
"Hey friends! I will be performing and hanging w the ladies of ABC's The View Thursday the 10th!" he tweeted.
ABC declined to comment about the decision but sent out a release confirming that Lambert will appear on Thursday's show.
Lambert will be interviewed by "The View" hosts and will perform. Both will be pre-taped because Lambert has a scheduling conflict and cannot be in New York on Thursday, sources said.
The appearance follows Lambert's sit-down interview with Barbara Walters for her "10 Most Fascinating People" special on Dec. 9.
[Updated at 6:41 p.m.: The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which in the last two days has issued three statements regarding its position on this issue, has now issued a statement from its president, Jarrett Barrios: "ABC has taken a step towards fairness by inviting Adam Lambert to perform on 'The View.'" GLAAD has been advocating against the double standards that have been applied to Lambert as an openly gay performer. We thank community members and allies for voicing their concerns with ABC so that entertainers like Adam have the opportunity to be broadcast into living rooms across America."]
[Updated at 10:09 p.m.: An earlier version of this post misspelled Barbara Walters' first name as Babara.]
