adam lambert 320 rolling st 'American Idol': Adam Lambert tweets New Year's Eve Gridlock event not televisedIf you are hoping to ring in the New Year with “American Idol” finalist Adam Lambert, you’d better book that ticket to Los Angeles.

Adam Lambert is performing live at the Times Square Stage on a Hollywood backlot for Gridlock 2009 New Year’s Eve, hosted by Pamela Anderson.

But he tweeted Sunday morning, Dec. 27, “unfortunately Gridlocked NYE will NOT be filmed/televised/streamed. It’s a LIVE event only. Hope to see you there!!

Bummer. After getting bumped from Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on ABC, now we can’t watch Adam Lambert at all! Take heart, though — you can watch fellow “American Idol” season eight finalists Kris Allen and Allison Iraheta on Billboard’s New Year’s Eve on FOX performing live from the Las Vegas strip.

UPDATE: We previously said the Gridlock event was in New York City. It is actually in Los Angeles. We were thrown by the “Times Square Stage.” We have corrected the error.
