It looks like the real fallout from Adam Lambert’s absurdly over-the-top (and poorly sung) “American Music Awards” performance on Sunday has begun. ABC has axed the singer’s “Good Morning America” appearance scheduled for Wednesday.

A spokesperson for GMA told Rolling Stone, “Given [Lambert’s] controversial live performance on the AMAs we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning.”

No kidding. Most people prefer their cartoon S&M and simulated oral sex after 5 p.m. The 1,500 complaints the network received following Sunday night’s AMA broadcast probably also helped them come to that decision. (I’m betting Adam’s “Sesame Street” and “Yo Gabba Gabba!” invites are on hold too.)

The singer gives keyboard player Tommy Joe Ratliff his Thanksgiving bonus live on national television.

The cancellation is good news for CBS, which quickly swooped in to pick up Lambert for “The Early Show.” The Tiffany network will also air a performance the singer recorded Monday at the Ed Sullivan Theatre in NYC on tomorrow night’s “Late Show with David Letterman.”

While there’s been no word from “The Early Show” or Lambert about the switch, Rolling Stone reports the singer’s AMA tonsil-hockey partner, straight keyboardist Tommy Joe Ratliff, posted this Twitter missive earlier today: “Ok I’m REALLY sorry for the mix up! I JUST found out that we are not playing GMA. We ARE playing The Early Show!”
