Petition: Keep Adam Lambert at New Year’s Rockin’ Eve

Just read this tweet from @SadaoTurner, Ryan Seacrest’s assistant:

- No clue. Those decisions at much higher level than me lol. RT @stlouis1gal: @SadaoTurner rumors that @AdamLambert’s cancelled frm NYE, true?

I think it’s time we do a pre-emtive strike and let Dick Clark Productions and ABC know that we want to see Adam Lambert on New Year’s Rockin’ Eve before they make any announcement. There’s going to some good news in the coming days that will take focus away from the AMA scandal — namely that Adam doubled the sales of Kris Allen and beat Lady GaGa in the charts. We can use that as leverage right? Scandal was good for sales? People still love him?

So what do you guys say? Let’s trend: #AdamRockinEve

I will not be watching if Adam isn't on it. I did not like the AMA performance, sorry, Adam, but I don't think he should be black listed and I intend to watch every thing that Adam is on. I can decide on my own if I like it or not, but I can hardly forget the most exciting performer to come off of American Idol. His concert performance on the Idol tour was awesome! He deserves another chance.

anita, I agree with you and I am a great grandmother and I love listening to him..he is fantastic...I won't watch if Adam isn't on there, cause it will not be worth watching...I know kris won't make me watch it...he can't sing like Adam....as far as Allison and Adam rocking they were great at the concert in Kansas City.....I agree that his personal life should be his, but the news won't leave it alone...still love him and his music...so handsome.....

Without Adam it's not worth watching..Give the
guy another chance, make him sign a contract that
if broken he pays through the nose. He's the best
singing voice since Elvis. I'm a great grandma, talent means more than personal life, which he should keep to himself. But please find a way that
we can continue to hear this beautiful voice. What a waste if you continue to punish him .

No, no.. all this noise not about Adam Lambert being gay and multiple cancellations not about of this.. THIS IS ABOUT ADAM LAMBERT'S IS OUT OF TV EXEC'S TRUST. LAMBERT WILL GREATLY FIT SOME NIGHT CLUB. NOT HIGHER FOR NOW IF HE WILL NOT ACCEPT
THE LESSON. HE ABUSED AND INSULTED NOT ONLY TV EXEC'S TRUST, HE ABUSED AND INSULTED THE AUDIENCE THAT BROUGHT HIM ON TV STAGE. NYE WITH HIM?
I DO NOT WANT TO SEE HIS DIRTY ON-STAGE ACTION AND HIS FINGER. YOU, LAMBERT, HAVE NO APOLOGY? OK,FINE. ENJOY BY WHAT YOU GOT.

ABC should let Adam perform on New Years Eve.
He is an excellent singer. I don't see JLo and Janet Jackson getting black balled for their bad behavior, so why should Adam be? What is the big deal with asking him to tone down his performance if they are concerned with improper behavior? He is a flamboyant performer, so what?
Again, the problem can easily be solved by asking him to tone it down.

@justfacts....I respect your opinion, but feel you have it wrong. Adam's latest appearances on Letterman, CBS's Morning Show, and Ellen, show that Adam is all about his music. If the gay topic is brought up, it is by the host, and Adam has no choice but to comment on their question, otherwise, he doesn't bring up any gay issues. I think Adam is a great role model for the gay community. He is unapologetic for being who he is, and well he should be. Would you want to apologize for who you are? We should all be true to ourselves, like Adam is to himself.

Adam gives gays a bad name.He can't even sing a song without declaring his choice of bedpartners.
Who even heard his voice on the ama's? His need for approval overshadowed any performance.Everytime he appears on tv it's all about his right to be gay.It may be your choice but not for everyone.Seriously keep it to yourself and keep it in your pants too.

I can't wait for the day when ABC will be begging Adam to appear on their network!!! Also, can we move on from the AMA performance? I hope Adam appears on other networks and we'll see how their ratings soar.

I absolutely love Adam Lambert and his music. Please keep him on ABC's Rocking New Years Eve.
I don't understand why Adam is being punished for
adults whose "young kids" should have been in bed at 10:50 at night!! The AMA'S are highly sexual and provacative anyway. Janet Jackson grabbing her crotch, Lady GaGa dressed like an alian, smashing whiskey bottles on a firey piano, or eninem going to rape/kill someone!! If you allow other artist to do what they want then you have to let Adam Lambert do what he wants too!

if you did not like the ama performance( which was not my cup of tea) but i am still a lambert fan....YOU COULD TURN THE CHANNEL for heavens sake!Now abc...make it a major deal by canceling everything ! yes, i do want to watch the guy, and WILL on another channel if need be.We do still have freedom to choose our channels...stop with the scam abc!!!

hey, if you dont like adam, dont pay attention to him...easy and if you like him (actually I adore him and I'm straight and mother and i married and all the apparently " normal things" accepted by this society. He did a mistake.. thats it.. you never did one? ok..so WE ARE WAITING FOR ADAM IN NYE!! and all my family are going to watch the station where he is going to be singing!!!!!

Forget about ABC. I'm going to watch him perform on a different station on New Year's Eve. Too bad for ABC.

The main thing is that entertainment productions that are live are going to be hesitant to book Adam. He rehearsed the AMA performance numerous times on observed by the production staff of ABC and AMA and what did Adam do, he changed it once the song started. The kiss did not bother me and I am not homophobic. But, the gyrations while pressing the dancer to his crotch were OTT. Why can't Adam's fans admit that. The very angry face and giving the finger to the audience was just too unbelievable. He looked bad and sounded even worse. Where was that great voice he has? I was a big fan of Adam's on AI and saw him on the AI tour. How a person could sabotage his own career like he did, makes me wonder what he is really all about. I'm just not impressed with him anymore, sorry. Still think he has a fantastic voice. Remember, he said in 2006 he used a lot of drugs that included cocaine. Let's hope he has not started using again. That crossed my mind after his performance on the AMAs. I hope I am wrong, but his face was red and puffy at the end of the song and why would he give the finger to the audience if he was thinking straight?

I concur @Wicked Glitter: "I hope CBS gives Adam his own New Years Eve show. We really need someone new, gorgeous, and talented to start the new year. Start a new tradition."

You said it!

Easy to imagine what a great show that would have been. He would have looked gorjus & sung splendidly particularly after what has transpired over the past week, etc. He would have upped his game with the vocals, like the Letterman appearance.

I would have watched Dick Clark's New Years production due to Adam Lambert. But, no Adam - no me.

Wicked Glitter
Wicked Glitter

If Dick Clark wouldn't of had that stroke there would be no way that he would go along with this. What did ABC do with him anyway? Did he die, and they put some kind of Stepford host in his place? Come on Dick ! Shake that rat off! If Adam isn't on, then I won't be watching. I hope CBS gives Adam his own New Years Eve show. We really need someone new, gorgeous, and talented to start the new year. Start a new tradition. from now on .If Adam isn't on, then I'm not watching!

Alright the otherdude Ruben outsold Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert.

Kris is ahead on itunes with his single LLWD on an upward trend while Adam/ single is on a downward trend...

Kris won American Idol because he represented the popular genre which at the same time Matt Giraud, Danny represented. so he picked up their vote.

It was to be expected that Adam sold more in the beginning but the popular genre will in the end prevail and so does Kris.

Oh and I repeat Ruben outsold Adam.He is the American Idol winner with the most sales after the first week and sold more then Carrie and Kelly Clarkson.

Who sold more in the end?

The other dude

"Scandal was good for sales"??? What the fudge does that mean? Maybe Adam outsold Kris 3 to 1 because he is that much better. Maybe Adam sold nearly 200K because people actually enjoy listening to him! The so-called "scandle" palyed no part and if anything, harmed his numbers. Please feel free to post something realistic about Kris, like his dismal sales figures--- and note that he is the lowest selling Idol winner ever for a debut. Jeesh--why on earth would any Adam fans come here??

OBJECTIVITY is your friend!

I didn't know that DJ Jaito. I was just glad that I saw Kris in those charts. Thanks for the extra information.

Adam can kiss and stimulate blow jobs with whoever he wants to.

What pissed me off that he gave the bird after the performance in the camera like the people who brought him there meant nothing to him.

If you go to Adam's myspace page he doesn't even border to update his comments as of last week but wants for everyone to change their avatar to his CD cover.

When a guy just wants and doesn't care why should I sign a petition to allow him on a show...

It's a waste of time. Really..

Well, Adam's audience at the AMA were Americans & not Europeans. That's why he got a different reaction. Sure, everybody commits mistakes & entitled for a second chance. But with committing a mistake comes a price you have to reap. And Adam Lambert is reaping that now.

Oh... also for the prudes among you who... wag their fingers and say Adam should have known better... He has nothing to apologize for. He did not do anything wrong. I am with him in wishing he was better in terms of the vocals but his performance KILLED! Everybody, especially you prudes, were talking about it. LOVED every minute of it. My jaw hit the floor and that is a hard thing to accomplish. Keep up the good work if you are driving the K K K Kristians K K K Krazy you are doing something right!

Sure are some people on here wanting to be the moral police. Europeans wouldn't even have raised an eyebrow at Adam's AMA performance. Adam said as of lately that it was not his intention to offend anyone, he simply got carried away trying to interpret his song and put on a good show. He vows to tone it way down from here on. So what would it hurt you people to give him another chance. Have you acted "perfectly" all your life with no mistakes or no poor judgment? Let he with no sin cast the first stone.... Adam is a very loving, kind and humble guy, even urging over and over for his followers to go out and buy Allison's and Kris's new cd's. If you don't believe me, follow him on twitter.

OH COME ON! . . . THERE WILL BE LESS VIEWERS IF ADAM LAMBERT IS NOT ON NYRE? OH, SO NOW TV PROGRAMS REVOLVE AROUND ADAM LAMBERT? THE WHOLE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY IS NOT ABOUT HIM. IN FACT, IT WOULD BE BETTER IF ADAM LAMBERT DOESN'T GET INVITED TO NYRE. I DON'T LIKE TO SEE ANOTHER SHOW BEING USED BY ADAM SO THAT PEOPLE WILL GET TO GOSSIP ABOUT HIM & NOTICE HIM MORE.

Adam should have known better. He's an adult (at least in age). I think he should be shunned from tv at least for a while. He couldn't even admit right away that he was wrong. Now he's rethinking it. He really did alienate a lot of his fans (I'm one of them). I don't like Madonna anymore for the same reason. And btw, I think Lady Ga Ga is talented, but I also think she goes too far. Britney lost me as a fan years ago with her need to be naked on her videos. She knows very well that children idolized her and wanted to be like her. She is a good example for a whore or slut, but not for our children to idolize. Adam needs to man up or he will never get his fans back. He sounded bad on the AMA's, too. So for those who have never seen him perform before, they probably think he has no talent at all. Very bad performance on AMA's in my opinion.

the network/disney is between a rock and a hard place. Having Adam on is dangerous however NOT having him on is dangerous too - loss of viewers. I think he learned his lesson and will tone it down but God knows what he will do in his
own shows on tour. Lock up your daughters (ooops, and sons)....

I could go on and on with intelligent support for Adam Lambert, but with respect to New Year's Rockin Eve I can be very brief - I would watch if AL was on it, and I won't if he isn't...not a threat, as little 'ole me holds no power obviously, but just the humble truth. And as someone who takes some me-time and reads the blogs, I sorta suspect many feel the same way. If the mouse wants to exercise it's business savvy, it would book Lambert for NYE! And if ABC wants to concern themselves with sickening displays - have them watch any one of their Bachelor/Bachelorette series episodes... truly sending a bad message and so very off-putting! The tide is turning ABC - Adam Lambert IS the boy next door too, and for that I say Hurray.

The only reason I'd watch New Year's Rockin Eve is to see Adam Lambert. Otherwise, I won't watch.

Adam should definitely be left off the show. He has to pay his dues for dissing the entire industry with his stunt. If they let him on, he'll never learn and never grow to be a better person!

I don't care if he's on NYRE. I can't stand the host so wouldn't watch no matter the 'guest' but what people should know is that many of the performers are *NOT* live. Any performance could be pre-recorded and edited for content.

Sandra is right - First week sales ONLY mean something in terms of trying to debut at #1 on the Top 200 chart. They don't mean much - in the light of Taylor Hicks... when you can't even ACTUALLY go platinum when Billboard certifies his CD platinum solely based upon first week sales figures. CAN YOU SAY OOPSIE!? THey won't be making that mistake again, I bet! Total CD sales is based upon having hit after hit. Lady Gaga (with the initial release to her CD) is the BEST example of total vs initial sales. She peaked on the Top 200 chart nearly a half a year after the CD was released - maybe even longer. I don't know the exact week, but it wasn't following the JUST DANCE single or any of the lesser songs. When POKER FACE hit #1, the CD peaked.

DJ Jayito

For your information - if you don't participate in the VH1 Top 20. They FORCE FEED you what they want on the chart. Sure, we vote, but they don't give you much selection on what to vote for. I ALWAYS WRITE IN an additional selection, but it NEVER works. I don't think too many people (1) know you can write in... and (2) care enough to take that initiative. It's an awful show with little to no meaning.

BILLBOARD - might be one of the best charts, but that's still a bit about pay-ola - like they claim ("it once was"). Nope. Still is. Just ask the reporters for the Billboard CLUB PLAY chart. IT's all about pay-ola (FAVORS).

Getting songs on the radio is also about pay-ola - a lot of times. Lesser starts have less money to push a song, so they end up never hitting radio.

This all said... I do go by the Billboard charts, but to a much higher degree, I go by the itunes and amazon charts, because it's strictly about popularity and ACTUAL sales figures.

One other thing to note... Kris can likely hit a bigger variety of radio stations (versus Adam) - given their debut singles. Whataya Want From Me would've had a bigger range of stations, but then he wouldn't be telling his story. Releasing Entertainment first was planned - and following it with Whataya Want From Me was also planned. He's an artist trying to tell a story with his CD / CD releases. IT doesn't make his CD better... It just shows he cares about telling an overall story.

BTW - Allison's CD is very cute and is getting the best reviews of the 3 - on an overall basis.

I don't have the FINAL (ADAM) figures, but 80,000 x3 = 240,000. I know he was approaching that 240,000 figure.

ABC - I sort of WROTE THEM OFF my "I care" list, but for ADAM...

I SIGN THIS PETITION, if it indeed is one.

RICKEY... go to one of those online petition sites and START ONE! They are usually pretty darn good!

How many of Adam's sales figures are from ppl like me? I couldn't cancel my damn pre-order.

Last year was Kathy Griffin, the oddest New Year's Eve I ever saw. That was enough. Adam would only try to top her. (That's a figure of speech only.)

Sandra

Oops my comment was cut off. Meant to say "with" all the promotion instead of "will"

And my last sentence should mean:" Do you really think that debut album sales in the first week still matter after knowing how the other Idol winners did in comparison.

Sandra
Sandra

Check the Billboard charts 100 PHDude. Adam's single isn't even there while Kris is resting on 41. Adams FYE dropped out the first week and that will all the advertising.

On itunes Adam's single is now 35 where Kris single is 39. Kris is on the upward trend while Adams single is going on the downwards trend.

Ruben Studdard sold 225000 albums in the first week and is the most selling American idol winner after the first week. He beat Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood but yet where is he now? Underwood and Clarkson are megastars. Taylor Hicks is in front of Kelly Clarksons debut album sales after the first week. Where is he now?

Knowing all the figures I have to say that Kris is right where he should be. ONly time will tell if he has staying power and I think he does.

Do you really think

Adam outsold Kris by almost 3x and thankfully radio stations have started spinning Adam's songs! For Your Entertainment has remained higher than Kris's album on Itunes and Amazon and FYE, the single, is higher on Itunes than whatever Kris's single is... Can't remember the title or I would list it here. If Adam is on New Years Rockin Eve I will Tivo it if he is not I will skip it.

Of course he beat Kris Allen in Sales. Glamberts bought 6 copies lol I kid I kid. I am anxious to see Adam's 2nd and 3rd week sales personally. For me it was expected no? Lady Gaga outsells Jason Mraz for example but guess whose cd is in my collection and who is not.
