Pop idol Adam Lambert kissed a man on national television on Sunday night. Now ABC has given Lambert the kiss-off, and CBS has embraced him. Apparently responding to hundreds of viewer complaints following Lambert's racy performance during Sunday's "American Music Awards" telecast on ABC, the network canceled its plans for a Lambert-headlined concert that would have aired on ABC's "Good Morning America" program today. The network reported on Monday that it had received about 1,500 complaints about Lambert's number, in which he kissed a male keyboard player and another dancer placed his face in Lambert's crotch during a performance of his song "For Your Entertainment" (the latter bit was edited out for the West Coast broadcast)

Kicking off another typical seven-day work week in the offices of his management company 19 Entertainment, Adam Lambert fixed his gaze on his own pretty face. Scattered across his publicist's desk were proof sheets from a photo session with the singer, who will release his debut album on RCA Records, "For Your Entertainment," Nov. 23. The shots captured Lambert in typical glam-god poses: peacock, street tough, space oddity, freaky adventurer in the boudoir of the damned. Lambert, who in person is none of those things but rather a startlingly grounded 27-year-old radiating Southern Californian optimism, took up a red pencil and circled a frame.

Dancers outfitted in crystal jumpsuits dangled from oversized outdoor chandeliers. Silver-gloved fans sang along to "Billy Jean" and "The Way You Make Me Feel." The time was finally here. This was it. Celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Paula Abdul, Adam Lambert and JC Chasez gathered at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday for the world premiere of "Michael Jackson's This Is It," the highly anticipated feature-length documentary detailing the late pop idol's planned comeback concerts.

Tonight's "So You Think You Can Dance" celebrates the dance competition's 100th episode, a fact that executive producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe is still digesting. "Who would've thought?" said Lythgoe in an interview this week. "When [co-creator] Simon Fuller said, 'We've been successful with 'American Idol,' do you think this would work with dancing?' I said, 'No!' " After this season, its fifth, ends early next month, Fox will be, for the first time, segueing directly into a fall run.

The days of "don't ask, don't tell" are over for Adam Lambert. Rolling Stone magazine has posted a preview of the cover story in which Lambert unabashedly confirms his homosexuality, and the excerpts online indicate that, from this day forward, this season's groundbreaking "Idol" expects the media and his fans to accept him for who he is, with neither scandalized whispers nor rainbow flag-waving rallies of support.
