Adam Lambert wrapped up the 2009 American Music Awards with a racy rendition of his new single, the title track from For Your Entertainment. His steamy choreography, heavily laced with sexual overtones, will likely be the hottest topic of the day.
He kissed a male dancer, and engaged in simulated gratification moves with both male and female performers. After the performance he seemed offended by suggestions that the act was too risque and vigorously defended his moves.
Lambert told Rolling Stone, “It’s a shame because I think that there’s a double standard going on in the entertainment community right now. Female performers have been doing this for years — pushing the envelope about sexuality — and the minute a man does it, everybody freaks out. It’s time to take risks, be a little more brave, time to open people’s eyes and if it offends them, then maybe I’m not for them.”
According to Lambert, there were several unscripted and spontaneous moments during the performance, including a misstep that caused him to fall to the floor.
