Adam Lambert at the AMAs

November 23, 2009

This was a truly legendary performance.

First of all, American Idol is all-powerful, as the neophyte Adam Lambert was the grand finale of the American Music Awards last night. I was laughing and crying all at once as his performance kicked in and he jammed one of his male dancers’ face into his crotch – or was it vice-versa? Anyway very quickly they cut away to a shot of the audience but there was more crotch-face action (both male and female) to be had and soon the camera gave up and just went along with the shenanigans.

I was pleased to see such “outrageous behavior” but then Lambert raised the stakes by tripping, falling, rolling around and then going straight back to sexual-menace mode. He even grabbed one of the “musicians” and mashed face with him.

There’s something ridiculous about the “tough” sexual approach and yet it is ubiquitous, so much so that when Shakira is shaking her ass and smiling it’s somewhat unnerving. But Lambert’s raunchiness and gayness and falling on his faceness really took it to a welcome new level of ridiculousness.
