CBS Explains Why They Blurred Adam Lambert's Kiss

Adam Lambert kissed his straight keyboardist Tommy Ratliff during his sexually charged American Music Awards performance on Sunday.

On a Wednesday segment during the CBS Early Show, the kiss was blurred out before showing unedited footage of Madonna and Britney Spears making out.

A rep for CBS finally has spoken up, telling Extra: “We gave this some real thought. The Madonna image is very familiar and has appeared countless times including many times on morning television. The Adam Lambert image is a subject of great current controversy, has not been nearly as widely disseminated, and for all we know, may still lead to legal consequences.”
