A petition in support of Adam Lambert headlining a New Year's Eve concert in Singapore surpassed a separate petition calling for him to be removed.

The iPetitions.com petition in support of Lambert received 24,742 signatures, surpassing the original petition which attracted 20,067.

Opponents of Lambert's inclusion objected to his “active promotion of a highly sexualized lifestyle and LGBT rights,” saying that both “are contrary to mainstream Singaporean values.”

Lambert supporters in their petition “denounced” and “condemned the obvious sexual orientation discrimination demonstrated by the other petition on this site that is against Adam Lambert performing in Countdown 2016.”

Lambert fans also claimed in their petition that the original petition was being promoted by Christian conservative groups Singaporeans United for Family and the local chapter of Focus on the Family.

“We think it's time these groups truly respect all people living in Singapore and confirm they will help stop LGBT discrimination by working towards accepting and loving our LGBT family members and their natural and normal sexual orientation,” the petition reads.

Event organizer MediaCorp has confirmed that Lambert will headline the show.
