On the same day that Good Morning America announces that they’re canceling Adam Lambert’s appearance on their show after an American Music Awards performance apparently so shocking I couldn’t find an embeddable version (commenters?), CW Nevius tells us that

Fans of ABC’s morning happy chat show, “Good Morning America,” may want to be in Union Square at 4 a.m. Dec. 3. “GMA” will broadcast a tree-lighting that morning for an estimated 4.5 million viewers.

Are y’all thinking what I’m thinking?

    Seems like a great way to finally get some good use out of the candy-cane-red lip-gloss I’ve been waiting to use. Funny, though, I was at Union Square last night and the tree was already lit…must have been a test. Or maybe it was a pre-tape to prevent the display of militant homosexuals kissing in public? All this tada about a kiss. You’d think Janet Jackson flashed her tits again!

    Dick Clark Prod. pulled all of the clips on YouTube yesterday.

    I wasn’t offended by kiss or the pole dancing. What I was shocked by was the simulated oral sex part, and it would have had the same effect on me had it been a woman/guy or a woman/woman. In any combination, it wouldn’t seem right for the event, especially since it’s watched by so many kids.

    I missed the AMA awards, thinking it had something to do with doctors, so I have no idea what the controversy is. But giving GMA a hard time once in a while can’t be too bad if done with enough humor.

    The most shocking thing about his performance was how awful–AWFUL–the song was.

    SO BAD.

    Isn’t the official Union Square tree lighting this Friday? Are they going to turn the lights off and pretend for GMA on the 3rd or something? Or is GMA broadcasting THEIR tree lighting to a big screen in Union Square? And filming that, for some reason?
