Rihanna & Christina Aguilera Under Investigation For Sexy Performances (VIDEO)
The show’s finale – which aired on Saturday night – is currenly being investigated by a watchdog group over scantily-clad performances by RiRi and Xtina.
ITV, the British network which airs The X Factor, reports that it received about 1,000 complaints from finale viewers. Ofcom, a British media watchdog, announced on Monday that it would be investigating the 2,750 complaints they received about the finale.
Ofcom will asses to see whether the show broke section 1.3 of British broadcasting code, which states that “children must be protected by appropriate scheduling from material that is unsuitable for them.”
Although the pop stars’ outfits have caused an uproar, they aren’t exactly out of the ordinary when it comes to on-stage costumes. Rihanna wore a similarly skimpy outfit when she performed live on MTV’s The Seven earlier this year. Christina is also no stranger to sexy costumes and recently performed at the MTV Movie Awards in a leotard with a light-up heart over her crotch.
An ITV1 spokesperson says that they stand behind the show and the performances.
