It looks like ABC has decided that they do want Adam Lambert to entertain them. After canceling the singer's performance on Good Morning America due to his controversial showing at the American Music Awards, the network has back-pedaled and asked the "For Your Entertainment" singer to make an appearance on The View.
Fans and gay activists were outraged when Adam's ABC gigs were canceled, claiming that the openly gay singer was being discriminated against because of his sexuality. Now that Adam's been invited back, everyone seems to be appeased.
"ABC has taken a step towards fairness by inviting Adam Lambert to perform on The View," Jarrett Barrios, President of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), told Usmagazine.com in a statement. "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."
Adam's appearance on The View is set for Dec. 10, which is one day after he will be featured on Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009.
