Will ABC Let Adam Lambert Into the Oscars?

The Adam Lambert/ABC controversy is one of those things that makes zero sense to me. If you recall, after Lambert kissed a dude and briefly simulated oral sex with someone in his band on the American Music Awards, ABC freaked out and started banning him from their shows. The network canceled appearances on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' and 'Good Morning America,' apparently fearing that the 'American Idol' runner-up wouldn't be able to refrain from nibbling George Stephanopoulos' ear at 7:30 AM. What I don't get is why this is such a big deal: it's as if ABC is operating in a world in which Lady Gaga and her antics don't exist.

Now the big Lambert news is that he may be attending the Oscars, which is airing March 7 on ABC. As Lambert isn't in the film industry, this makes little sense-- except that he may be attending the ceremony with longtime friend Anna Kendrick, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her turn in the George Clooney film, 'Up In The Air.'

While Lambert has been allowed on ABC since the AMA incident, it has only been on pre-recorded segments. If he attends The Oscars with Kendrick, it will mark his first live appearance on the network since his controversial performance. As Lambert would just be attending as a guest, I doubt that there's very little ABC would want or be able to do about his appearance. Likewise, there's probably very little that Lambert himself would want or be able to do in order to court further controversy. However, I'm personally holding out for an assless tux.

They're big fat bigots if they don't.

DO NOT get me started on Pink and JLO doing exactly the same crotch move at the SAME ceremony and Network. And Eminem and Janet doing WORSE. Do not.

Adam is a mega star and should be invited with open arms to be at the Oscars, especially since one day he will probably earn one.

ABC should let Adam perform on the Oscars or present. FOR ONE SIMPLE REASON. Ratings. Do you really think ABC gives a you-know-what about a measly 1500 complaints out of 14 MILLION viewers? They'd kill for that kind of viewership. That's where the money is, in the advertisers and viewership. If ADAM was on the OSCARS, it would be the MOST HIGHLY RATED show ever. They could ask for the moon from advertisers. Are you kidding me? ABC would be making a huge mistake to never have Adam on again live. Boy, those CEOs are stupid Disney shills.

LOL! Perhaps the assless tux is asking a bit much, but since Adam has such amazing legs, perhaps a pair of glitter edged Armani hotpants to complement the D&G tux would suffice? Loved the article.

ABC is a senseless network. If they really want to be consistent they need to do something about Brenda Hampton on ABC FAMILY network. The last few weeks of Secret Life of the American Teenager has been a sex manual of how to ...... ABC can go blow and take their politically slanted news with them.

this is truly just another silly Adam Lambert article designed to keep his name out there so all these silly star struck females can write how much they love him and how much he makes their little hearts go pitter pat and their privates get all tingly. Adam will never have to worry about his career as he has all these women that want to mother him and smother him and just love him to death ! And they could care less if his music is good or it stinks....

In reply to Common Sense's comment: Try using some real common sense and some manners too. You are INCORRECT. Not all of Adam Lambert's fans "tingle in their panties" over him. Some of us think his vocal abilities are fresh and unique. Some of us think he is a genuine and a caring individual. Some of think he is NICE and find our pleasure in supporting his rise to fame, which he richly deserves. It's MY right to spend my hard earned money however I choose. That statement is pretty far on the other side of the mentality you are displaying here. Please refrain from generalizing on a subject you are not knowledgeable about. If you want to expound on rudeness prevalent on the internet, Im sure you are quite the expert on that subject given your great contribution to this article.

So far, America is still a free country. Im free to admire and support Adam Lambert and his career. People like you, who clearly don't have much of a life, or consideration for others, remind me of the warning my grandpa used to tell me. He said " never kick a turd on a hot summer day. You ARE that turd, so I will have mercy and won't stomp your ass verbally.

Of course, Adam deserves to be at the Oscars! Adam Lambert is a very talented singer and performer. I love his music, his style and his generosity!! He makes every performance an experience fro EVERYONE and I hope he DOES PERFORM, not just attend, at the Oscars! The way he sang Time For Miracles" was phenomenal. Only Celine Dion could have done that song as much justice as Mr. Lambert did. Enjoy the Oscars, Adam! YOU ROCK!!!
