The Pussycat Dolls are the most notorious burlesque troupe in history – yet their performance on X Factor: Celebrity was still hit with a mega 419 complains to Ofcom on Saturday night.
The girl band confirmed they were reuniting for a huge arena tour in 2020 and gave their first performance in 10 years on Saturday night to a mixed response from viewers.
While Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Carmit Bachar and Jessica Sutta undoubtedly slayed their highly-anticipated comeback, there were thousands calling the girls out for their outfits, which, TBH, is really tiresome.
At the very most, the five-piece showed off a bit of leg but some audience members felt the looks went too far.
One concerned mother tweeted: ‘I had to cover the eyes of my 6 year old daughter when they appeared with these horrendous and provocative dresses on the screen. Shame on you pussy cat dolls.’
Another asked: ‘What’s happening on ITV, have I switched on an xrated channel?’
Others were more in tune to the nature of a Pussycat Dolls performance.
‘All these people going off at Pussycat Dolls on X Factor with their performance, you do realise they’re the mf pussycat dolls right?’ one fan retorted. ‘They’re sexy and raunchy. Don’t insult the performance just because it was before 9pm. They killed it so pipe down, it’s bedtime boomer.’
Regardless, Scherzy seemed to ignore the haters and immediately shared her excitement over the epic medley on Instagram, posting: ‘It‘s so good to be back with my girls 💪🏽🖤 Watch the full @pussycatdolls performance on the @itv hub at the link in my story! #PCDReunion #XFactorCelebrity.’
Even Jason Momoa gave the performance a big thumbs up so at this point, what is 400 complaints to Ofcom?
You can catch the performance in full and the rest of The X Factor: Celebrity final on ITV Hub.
