Lambert still frozen out by ABC

A week after getting dumped from “Good Morning America,” glam-rocker Adam Lambert is still in hot water with ABC for his racy performance a couple of days earlier on its “American Music Awards” telecast.

Now Lambert says he's been dropped from ABC's “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and its “New Year's Rockin' Eve.”

The network “decided not to move forward” with booking Lambert on Kimmel's Dec. 17 show, ABC said in a statement.

ABC spokeswoman Patrick Preblick said the talent lineup for the New Year's Eve special has not been announced.

Lambert addressed the two bookings on his Twitter account on Wednesday.

“Yes, sadly, friends, ABC has cancelled my appearances on Kimmel and NYE,” wrote Lambert. He added, “Let's focus on being positive!”

In the meantime, all is not lost. NBC says he'll be a guest on “The Jay Leno Show” on Dec 21. And he's interviewed by Barbara Walters on her “Most Fascinating People of 2009” special — airing next Wednesday on ABC.
