London: Rihanna and Christina Aguilera’s raunchy performances on X Factor 2010 final have been cleared by the media watchdog despite nearly 3,000 complaints.

Both stars wore skimpy clothing and performed racy dance moves, reports a newspaper.

Ofcom said Aguilera, who sang Express, from the movie ‘Burlesque’, was "at the very margin of acceptability" before the 9pm watershed.

It said: "The overtly sexual nature of the burlesque-style routine of the dancers was clearly capable of causing offence."

But it rejected the 2,868 complaints about Rihanna and Aguilera, who sang What`s My Name.

Ofcom said broadcasters of family shows "should recognize the potential for causing offence".
