Ofcom has announced this week that, despite a large number of complaints, the celebrity performances from last year's X Factor final were appropriate.
The dance routines included a burlesque performance by Christina Aguilera featuring backing dancers wearing fishnet tights
, as well as a raunchy performance by Rihanna.
Some 2,800 viewers complained that the final show was too sexually explicit to be seen by children, and aired before the watershed of 21:00 BST.
The regulator Ofcom has claimed that the show was "at the very margin of acceptability for broadcast before the 21:00 BST watershed."
ITV claimed that the Aguilera performance was appropriate as it was promoting the singer's new film Burlesque.
Christina and her dancers wore fishnet tights
, corsets and silk underwear
while performing seductive dance sequences live in December 2010.
