While ABC can't seem to make up its mind on Adam Lambert, Fox has no problem bringing the scandalous, smooch-happy Idol runner-up back to the network that launched him.

The glam rocker is set to take the stage for the two-night season finale of So You Think You Can Dance airing Dec. 15-16. He'll sing "Whataya Want From Me," the latest track off his debut album, For Your Entertainment.

Fox announced the performance this morning, days after ABC struggled over what to do with Lambert following his racy American Music Awards antics.

At first, ABC issued a full-on Lambert ban, pulling the plug on a scheduled appearance on Good Morning America and a New Year's Eve gig on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Glambert and GLAAD called the move evidence of a "double standard," and ABC backtracked a bit. Lambert has since been booked to perform this Thursday on The View and will also be featured on Barbara Walters 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009 special.

Meanwhile, his upcoming SYTYCD slot will be the envelope-pushing showman's first time on Fox since he placed second on American Idol's finale last May.
