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".
