NEW YORK (AP) — ABC's "Good Morning America" is saying "no thanks" to Adam Lambert.

The morning show canceled the glam rocker's scheduled performance on Wednesday's show because of Lambert's racy appearance on the "American Music Awards" on Sunday night. ABC said it doesn't think Lambert's performance would be appropriate for a morning audience.

While singing his new song "For Your Entertainment" at the awards program, Lambert kissed a male dancer, fondled another and had a dancer briefly stuff his face in Lambert's crotch. It prompted many complaints to ABC.

But CBS quickly announced Tuesday that Lambert would appear on "The Early Show" Wednesday morning both to perform and discuss the reaction to Sunday's appearance.

The "Good Morning America" cancellation was first reported on TVNewser and Hollywood Life Web sites.
