A group of "concerned citizens" have created a petition to stop the "American Idol" runner-up from his 2016 countdown concert on News Year's Eve, because of his "promotion of LGBT rights" and "sexualised" performances.

"...On the basis of inclusion of the young and the often cited silent majority in Singapore who continue to uphold values that appear contrary to the liberal west."
Lambert, who is an LGBT activist and "Idol" to many here in the states (and around the world), has responded to this petition with some words of his own. He says his performance will be "an entirely new show experience for my fans that is kicking off in Singapore."
