ABC is not totally shutting down Adam Lambert after all. The singer has personally announced that he would be appearing on "The View", tweeting "Hey friends! I will be performing and hanging w the ladies of ABC's The View Thursday the 10th!"

During the visit, Lambert will be both performing and sitting down with the ladies for an interview. He will talk about the inclusion of him in Barbara Walters' "Most Fascinating People" which airs a day before "The View". Unlike American Music Awards which sparked the first conflict between Lambert and ABC though, Lambert's appearance will be pre-taped.

Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation which has been on Lambert's back since ABC canceled a couple of his scheduled gigs, issued their third statement that expressed satisfaction. "ABC has taken a step towards fairness by inviting Adam Lambert to perform on 'The View'," said Jarrett Barrios, President of the organization. "GLAAD has been advocating against the double standards that have been applied to Lambert as an openly gay performer. We thank community members and allies for voicing their concerns with ABC so that entertainers like Adam have the opportunity to be broadcast into living rooms across America."

Beside "The View", Adam Lambert is heading to NBC for an appearance on "The Jay Leno Show" on December 21.

I agree with you Jenn. Maybe we can press ABC and show Adam is a fantastic singer and a fantastic person. Please ask ABC to put Adam back on Kimmel.

Personally I'm sorry ABC caved. Lambert deserved to be banned after that disgusting performance on the AMAs.

Yes! Thanks to Barbara Walters and to the people that make America special and not let special interest group run the country. We need to fight for justice at all times. ABC really should let Adam Lambert have his other engagements back. So many are behind Adam. He is new at this and learning the hard way what to far out there. Yes Adam has many special talents. No more witch burning.

I believe Barbara Walters' clout pushed ABC to have ADAM on The View. The 10 Most Fascinating People has been taped after which we learn of ADAM appearing on The View for a taped interview and performance due to schedule conflict. Has Ryan Seacrest no clout to do the same to have ADAM on the New Year show?

Adam certainly proved he is calm under fire and I hope his gracious attitude helped ABC realize they were totally over reacting. I hope ABC will recant on the other programs they removed Adam from and just work with him to meet their needs and allow him to perform for his fans.
