Adam Lambert not invited to AMA’s, doing just fine Even though the controversial pop star was not invited to last night’s American Music Awards, he seems to be doing just fine given that E! news has just debuted an edition of True Hollywood Story featuring the star. For fans of Lambert, this special covers the essentials; from Lambert’s awkward adolesence, to his early love of theater, and all the way up to his notorious performance at last year’s AMAs and subsequent Glam Nation Tour.

Check out a preview of the special over at E! News

    The True Hollywood Story was great…showed what a great artist and person he is.Hopefully soon he will make it on awards shows because his tour was outstanding this year.

    I love Adam lambert and his True Hollywood Story was the best they had! I just wish it would have been another couple of hours because you can never get enough of Adam! Also Love that the ratings dropped bigtime on the AMAs this year, hmm, sure went up last year when Adam was on them! Karma?

    The true Hollywood story was great, Adam Lambert is very talented, sweet person. He is loved by his fans but also he was love by his coworkers and teachers when he was just a child not yet discovered. He has that quality about him, it is out of this world, he is honest to a fault and nothing fake about him. His talent is like no other. American Idol is not the same after Adam Lambert, I was American Idol fenatic but now that show has lost its charm and every contestant looks pale in coparrision. Adam Lambert is the worldwide superstar.

    I think ABC really blew it by caving into the hoopla by a small minority after last years AMA show. They hyped Adam Lambert all week and all night, and that might have helped account for the higher ratings. This year was a total bore. They did not respond to write ins, as they said they would. Adam’s tour has been such a colossal success — across the USA, Asia and now Europe. Nearly non-stop and nearly all sold out. Have we read about that? In any major media outlet? No — because the entire media business if focussed on selling and touting the most easily digestible artists to the most gullible fans. Bieber and Taylor Swift is about all we’ll get from the AMA’s (and probably radio) for years to come, if they keep this up.

    I loved Adam and loved watching him on E. Good job, E!! I did not watch the AMAs because of them not inviting Adam or nominating him. Do you really think Michael Blube is known to the kids or do you think Bieber can outsing Adam? I also did not watch the PeoplesChoice Awards because he wasn’t even on the list for newcomer. We all wrote him in and tweeted them, but he still wasn’t included. Definitely snubbing going on.

    I didn’t expect him to be at the awards again, but I am still frustrated at how he continues to be snubbed by the industry. Bieber is a joke and I knew he would win anyway. I didn’t watch the awards and didn’t hear much about them. I don’t intend to ever watch them again. America’s music tastes are terrible. I’ll watch the Tony Awards, thank you.

    His E! THS was great and I will watch it again. Better viewing than the AMAs.

    I was among the MULTITUDE of fans who watched ADAM’s E! True Hollywood Story last night ‘n skipped that snooze fest AMAs. It was a joy following ADAM’s journey from childhood through teen angst into world exploration at an early age then returning home ‘n discovering himself which finally led to the WORLD’s discovery of ADAM. Such a well told ‘n interesting story about such an amazing young man with a GLORIOUS voice that has the power to mesmerize you ‘n keep you asking for more. I am dedicated to follow ADAM on his journey for as long as I am able and will support him all the way!! SUPERSTAR!!

    Yep! The 22% drop in AMA viewership was due to the fact that 22% of the country was watching the Adam Lambert E story instead. The AMAs were purposely boycotted because of the backlash against Adam lambert. And the 22% only accounts for the USA. Thousands across the world were streaming into the the Hollywood Story or watching Adam Lambert’s tour on Youtube. Stranger is the fact that Adam Lambert is getting awards and more recognition in other countries – even Malaysia.

    The fact that Adam was snubbed from the AMAs, just proves how anachronistic and obsolete that awards show is. Like “People’s Choice”, it has little if anything to do with the actual artist’s popularity, and more to do with the politics of media. The fact that Adam is winning awards world wide just proves this. Adam, you go boy! ROCK AND ROLL!

    Perhaps more than 1500 people did not like that Adam Lambert has been bullied by ABC. I would have never thought that ABC would have actually held anything against Adam. There are so many sexual innuendos on that t elevision station in so many programs. It has been a year and it’s time for the FCC to close the case, if it is indeed still pending. May we all act like adults here and stop letting 1500 obvious prejudice people dictate what we can view or not view. Obviously there are more that would like to see a true talent like Adam Lambert at the very least be invited to this show about music. A young man got carried away trying to outdo the outlandish things that had already happened that night A YEAR AGO. He has learned a lesson from this on television. He has been on several shows since then. His American Idol guest appearance last year was absolutely breathtaking. It is very unbecoming to witness McCarthism in 2010. Many of us viewers enjoy talent and Mr. Lambert is second to none!

    I watched Adam THS of course but got to see some of the performances at the AMA, I must say I was totally captivated by the lovely story of Adam’s life as told by him, his family , friends and colleagues. He is a very sincere person and totally dedicated to his art. The AMA performances I caught glimpses of were so boring and same old that I couldn tbear to waste my time. it is ironic that AMA got Adam to perform last year to up the ratings (and it did) and then invited Bieber this year (in retaliation and perhaps thinking will up the ratings once more) well guess what? It didn’t happen. AMA bet on the wrong horse this year.!

    I didn’t watched the AMA’s but watched Adam on E instead. It was a really fantastic show, my only complaint it was not long enough. I am not surprised that the ratings for the AMA’s were down, I think they underestimated the passion and loyalty of Adam Lambert fans. It was a joke that he was not invited or nominated and I won’t be watching the AMA’s or any other award show that doesn’t recognize him for the tremendous talent that he is.

    I must ask the author a question. How do you know he wasn’t invited to the AMA’s? Adam has been out of the country since the very beginning of October. He had his Worldwide tour set months ago well before the AMA’s had their line-up. He was booked in Germany months ago. So how do you know whether or not he was invited? If he was he would have had to say no. Do you have insider info you could share? I’m dying of curiosity here.

    I did not watch the AMA or anything on ABC since Adam last year. I watched his wonderful Estory. The AMA is a farce and they make themselves look more ridiuclous by snubbing one of their brightest if not the brightest star. What kind of message does this send out to young people there. That you are crucified and no mistakes as others see them are tolerated. From a country that likes to spout off of the land of equal opportunity and all men are created equal, they keep digging their hypocritacal grave ever deeper.

    Adam is a superstar. ABC can not stop him in his way to the stardom and can not stop a millions of people all over the world from LOVING HIM HEAT AND SOUL.

    ABC, you were pathetic.

  • November 23, 2010 | Permalink |

    I watched Adam on E and it was a wonderful journey through Adam’s life. I also skipped the AMA’s deliberately. No increase of their ratings by Adams fans we are devoted to our idol!

    Loving all the support for Adam Lambert. he so so totally deserves it. Adam’s fans and supporters are savvy, appreciate true and real rock/pop music and talent, exercise integrity and express themselves passionately and articularly. ABC bullied Adam, and the fans and other viewers responded with love by boycotting hate. This has made me smile non-stop for the past two days.

    Adam is an absolute inspiration to his loyal fans. Loved the special…would have sat through many more hours. Like those who have also posted here, have been smiling non-stop knowing that his fans (me included) were able counteract ABC’s ignorance with our love and support.

    We love Adam Lambert and ABC and their parent company, Disney are BANNED in our home. This will continue until they treat Adam right!

  • November 27, 2010 | Permalink |

    I wish Adam had taken advantage of his 2009 AMA and sang his heart out. Instead he hid behind a lot of flash and didn’t even use his voice much. He is so talented and he really needs to make it big with his voice and not his “drag queen” persona. In a few years that makeup will look like a drag queen hag and we won’t even recognize him if he tries to continue without it.

    The women who do this kind of act like lady gaga can get away with it for longer.

    Use your voice Adam… people would have loved you if you’d just sang at the 2009 AMA. Now what they saw was //// wth?

    The True Hollywood story on Adam Lambert was fantastic. Of course the AMA viiewership went down. They proved they aren’t about musical freedom but bias and ABC proved they are full of the same kind of double standard as the AMA. Where is the spirit of rock n’ roll?? AMAs made their program a 12 year old program – way to go!!!
