The X Factor‘s racy final involving Christina Aguilera will be investigated by UK broadcasting watchdog Ofcom. The US star performed a suggestive routine with scantily clad dancers on the UK finale, while Rihanna also gave a raunchy performance when she stripped off her gown to parade around the stage in a bikini.
The live show was watched by nearly 18 million people – the UK’s biggest television audience of the year, pipping the World Cup broadcast of England vs Germany.
Ofcom received around 2750 complaints about the pre-watershed scenes and broadcaster ITV had more than 1000.
3000+ complaints over this. Surely they could have complained about the lack of talent, lack of substance, lack of anything remotely entertaining. But for being too sexy? What a bunch of prudes.
