For the second time in as many weeks, the network has pulled the plug on an Adam Lambert appearance.
First, the singer was scheduled to appear on Good Morning America the day after his controversial American Music Awards performance. In a movie that reeked of homophobia and a double standard, Lambert was axed from the show.
Instead, he performed a perfectly clean routine on Today and has gone on to admit his AMA act "went too far."
Case closed, right? Not for ABC.
Lambert's was scheduled to put on an outdoor concert on the December 17 installment of Jimmy Kimmel Live! - but an an ABC spokesperson confirmed today:
“We decided not to move forward with the booking at this time."
No reason was given for the cancelation, but the gig had been booked prior to the AMAs. Lambert will now perform on The Jay Leno Show on December 21.
By the way: woman-beating Chris Brown will still appear on 20/20 next week. That show airs on ABC.
