Adam Lambert’s racy performance on the American Music Awards has led ABC to scrap his scheduled concert tomorrow on Good Morning America. “Given his controversial live performance on the AMAs we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning,” an ABC spokesperson told Rolling Stone while confirming news of the Lambert cancellation.

It’s not all bad news for the Wild Idol, however: Lambert will instead perform on tomorrow’s episode of CBS’ The Early Show. It’ll be a double dose of Lambert on CBS tomorrow, as he also recorded a performance yesterday at New York’s Ed Sullivan Theatre that will be broadcast tomorrow night on The Late Show With David Letterman. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Lambert indicated he wasn’t taking ABC’s decision to nix his morning appearance personally, adding, “Obviously I respect their decision, they gotta do what they gotta do. It’s too bad, I think there were a lot of fans who were excited to come see me. They probably had a lot of pressure coming at them from certain people who weren’t happy about it. I don’t necessarily agree with it, but they need to do what they need to do.”

In a Twitter post, keyboardist Tommy Joe Ratliff, Lambert’s make-out partner at the AMAs, wrote, “Ok I’m REALLY sorry for the mix up!!! I JUST found out that we are not playing GMA. We ARE playing The Early Show!” Rolling Stone reached out to The Early Show for comment but have not heard back as of press time.
