According to ABC, more than 1,500 people have called so far to complain about Adam Lambert's performance at last night's American Music AwardsMTV referred to  the "American Idol" runner-up's  performance as  "what might be the most NSFW performance in the history of the AMAs, one that frequently crossed the border from sexy to rather graphic, and which put some previous provocative awards-show appearances by Madonna to shame."

The network characterized the response as "moderate." Before his performance, Lambert said that he wanted to break down a double standard that existed where female performers are often sexually provocative while men don't do it that often.
