ABC to Adam Lambert: Enjoy ‘The View’

He might be “banned” from “Jimmy Kimmel” and “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” but the singer will sit down with the ladies of “The View” next week

ABC’s Adam Lambert "ban" is over.

From a release just issued by ABC:

Adam Lambert will appear on “The View” Thursday, December 10. His visit with the hosts includes a taped interview and performance. “The View” episode airs the morning after Barbara Walters includes Lambert as on of the year’s “Most Fascinating People” in her primetime special, which airs Wednesday, December 9 at 10:01 p.m., ET on ABC.

The network previously had de-invited the former "American Idol" star from "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve." That prompted an angry backlash from Glambert fans, especially on Twitter.
