Lambert goes to the extreme

Leave it to Adam Lambert to shake up the traditionally drab American Music Awards. After the late Michael Jackson and award-queen Taylor Swift traded off victories and medley performances from the likes of Janet Jackson and Black Eyed Peas dominated the evening, Lambert showed the country his own type of domination. If you know what we mean.

During his show-closing performance of "For Your Entertainment" a male dancer simulated oral sex on the "American Idol" alum. Moments later, Lambert grabbed one of his backing musicians by the nape of the neck and gave him an open-mouthed kiss, all while a gaggle of scantily clad dancers in S&M get-ups writhed behind him. I was at Survivor Series at Verizon Center last night and it was downright tame compared to all that!

Chris Richards has the rundown on Lambert's performance and reactions; here's a photo gallery from Sunday's show.
