Adam Lambert may not have won American Idol, but after his insane performance at the American Music Awards last night, we’re surprised anyone can remember who did. Lambert was an equal opportunity offender throughout, leading dancers on a leash (male), grinding his crotch in their faces (male and female), wedging his hand up a pole dancer’s underwear (female), frenching his keyboard player (male) and making ears bleed (male and female) with his trademark shrieking. Aren’t you glad show producer Dick Clark lived to see this?
Lambert was defiant when discussing the potential uproar with the LA Times. “If it’s gonna be edited, then in a way that’s discrimination. I don’t mean to get political, but Madonna, Britney and Christina weren’t edited. It’s a shame. Female entertainers have been risqué for years. Honestly, there’s a huge double standard…I’m just trying to have a good time onstage. It’s a sexy song. It’s 2009, it’s time to take more risks. It’s about entertainment. People want to be surprised. It’s too bad that people are so scared.” Watch Adam hump and sing “For Your Entertainment” after the jump.
