Singer Lambert to appear on 'The View'

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Singer Adam Lambert will be a guest on ABC's "The View" following the U.S. network's decision to cancel his appearances on two other shows, ABC said.

ABC confirmed the former "American Idol" contestant will appear on the daytime talk show Thursday, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

Lambert's scheduled appearances on ABC's "Good Morning America" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live" were canceled after the 27-year-old singer's provocative performance at the American Music Awards in November.

The cancellations, along with ABC's decision to not consider Lambert for "New Year's Rockin' Eve," prompted outrage from fans of the openly gay singer.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation also criticized ABC for canceling Lambert's appearances, but applauded the network's decision to offer Lambert a "View" guest spot.

"ABC has taken a step toward fairness by inviting Adam Lambert to perform on 'The View,'" GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios said. "GLAAD has been advocating against the double standards that have been applied to Lambert as an openly gay performer."

The Times said Lambert will be interviewed and will perform on the daytime talk show.
