‘GMA’ cancels Lambert

NEW YORK — ABC’s “Good Morning America” canceled an appearance by Adam Lambert after his racy American Music Awards performance, and he was quickly snapped up by ABC’s morning rivals on CBS. Lambert was to sing this morning on “GMA,” but the network said Tuesday that “we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning.”

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

Boyle documentary to air

NEW YORK — TV Guide Network says it will air a special program starring singing sensation Susan Boyle next month.

The one-hour documentary, “I Dreamed a Dream: The Susan Boyle Story,” will feature performances by Boyle, plus interviews with her as well as friends and celebrities including Simon Cowell, a producer of the special.

It was last January that the shy, dowdy 47-year-old Boyle stepped on stage to audition for “Britain’s Got Talent.” She electrified everyone with her soaring rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream.”

The documentary, premiering Dec. 13 at 8 p.m., promises to track her journey from an obscure village in rural Scotland to that breakout performance and the global fame that has embraced her since.
