Is Idol Really Concerned Adam Lambert Might Go Rogue?

On AOL’s PopEater, Rob Shuter, the one-time flack to Jessica Simpson, claims American Idol warned Adam Lambert about repeating his mock fellatio stunt from the American Music Awards when her performs on the show tonight. “The producers are confident that Adam will stick to their rules, however, they are taking no chances and making sure they have a 3-second delay on the live show, just in case Mr. Lambert goes rogue,” he says. We just checked in with a knowledgeable Idol source, and Shuter’s item was met with an eye roll. “While [producers] probably wouldn’t want [Lambert] to get sucked off by anyone on stage, we haven’t even discussed it. And a brief live-to-air delay is pretty normal.”

      Is “Pretty Normal” the same as “Normal”? Did they have a dealy when Gwen Stefani performed, or Lady GaGa? Or Diddy? etc…

      @Cam: this is live television post-Janet Jackson Nipplegate + a heavily watched program. srsly, why wouldn’t they have a few second delay every episode?

      Don’t ask me, ask them, They are the ones that said it is “Pretty Normal” not “Always done” not “Normal”. I asked a simple question, did they have the dealy when Gwen Stefani played? If yes, then it’s normal, if no, then why do it just for Lambert?

      that is a REALLY clear, not fuzzy/pixelated shot of Adam and his band member.

      @Cam: I think it’s just a matter of semantics. Although, it could be referring to the fact that it is normal, but not always done, for live programs to have the delay.

      I just saw Adam’s performance on American Idol, and it was family-friendly as promised. After it was over, Ryan Seacrest came up on stage and congratulated Adam, then gave him a discreet kiss on his right cheek.

      In the same FAIL post about the Idol producers being nervous about Adam’s performance, Shuter also wrote that Madonna didn’t know what GLEE was and would rather they sing Elton John songs instead of butchering her songs. Then he went on to make this ludicrous statement, “It’s true that artists have no control over who sings their songs on TV” …

      According to Entertainment Weekly’s blogger Michael Slezak, all the celebrity performers are pre-taped in front of the audience an hour or so before showtime. (Their “on the scene” reporter has also stated this each week)

      In fact, EW.com revealed Gwen had to redo her performance because of an audio problem.

      Only the Tuesday contest show is live-live.
      (And the Results Show group number is lipsynched, how’s that for gossip?)
