The backlash from Adam Lambert’s controversial performance at the American Music Awards continues.

On Tuesday, Good Morning America cancelled on Lambert, who was set to perform on the network show on Wednesday.

An ABC spokeswoman said, “Given his controversial American Music Awards performance, we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning.”

As reported, the American Idol runner-up received support from various gay and lesbian groups on Monday following ABC’s decision to cut portions of his AMA performance during which Lambert kissed a guy on stage and simulated oral sex.

“It’s unfortunate that ABC and Dick Clark Productions censored the performance for west coast audiences, highlighting the double standard that still exists for gay entertainers,” Jeremy Kinser, senior editor of The Advocate, told

Lambert last appeared on Good Morning America in August.
