Fox will be throwing a coming-home party for last year’s American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert. Fox has stayed away from the fracas regarding Lambert’s controversial performance during the American Music Awards.
Adam Lambert is confirmed to make a live appearance on the result show of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance finale on December 16th. He will perform his single Whataya Want From Me which is taken from his debut album For Your Entertainment.
It will mark the controversial performer’s first appearance on the network since he was announced as the No. 2 finalist in last season’s American Idol last May. The dance contest is produced jointly by 19 Entertainment, which also produces American Idol, and Dick Clark Productions, which, along with ABC, yanked Lambert from an appearance on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve show scheduled to air on December 31st.
ABC received around 1,500 complaints about Lambert’s “sexually-charged performance” at this year’s American Music Awards. During the performance millions of viewers saw Lambert “simulate oral sex with a back-up dancer, plant a passionate kiss on the mouth of a male keyboard player and gesture to the audience with his middle finger during the closing act of the live music awards show.”
Adam will not be the only American Idol alum who rocks the reality dancing show. This week, Idol winner Kris Allen is also set to perform on the live results show, performing Live Like We’re Dying on December 9th.
Before singing on SYTYCD, Adam Lambert has to visit ABC’s The View first. Instead of having a live stage act like he did at the 2009 American Music Awards which cost him Good Morning America and Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearances, he is scheduled to tape his performance and interview with the hosts. The episode will be aired this coming Thursday, December 10th.
Two days after appearing on The View, he will take the stage of the Atlantic Bank Center in Miami, FL. for a hosting gig with Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester.
