Pussycat Dolls' steamy performance is slammed by 'disgusted' viewers
If you ever attended a school disco in the naughties, you'll be happy to know that the Pussycat Dolls have reunited and are releasing new music.
On Saturday night, X-Factor UK judge Nicole Scherzinger took to the stage with bandmates Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Carmit Bachar, and Jessica Sutta for the first time in a decade to put on a jaw-dropped performance of some PCD classics, along with a taster of their new single 'React'.
However, many viewers have branded the raunchy performance "disgusting" as a result of the band's sheer bodysuits and steamy dance moves.
Check out the performance below. Is this too hot for TV?
Unhappy viewers quickly took to social media to share their displeasure at the highly-anticipated reunion.
One Twitter user wrote: "Disgusting, disrespectful and shameful and all before the watershed. X-Factor is a family show and I enjoy it with my 7 year old daughter who was shocked and disgusted as was I. Call yourself a role model, put some clothes on and grow up. [sic]"
Another viewer said: "Disgusted with Pussycats dolls on X factor tonight. I’m sorry but I am there are millions of young girls watching this and thinking that they have to look that thin to get recognised. This is a family programme and it’s a disgrace! [sic]"
A third wrote: "The outfits the #pussycatdolls are wearing on #XFactorCelebrity are totally inappropriate for 8.15pm on a family show. Not good role models for girls. You don't have to take your clothes to be successful. [sic]"
Another raged: "What time is this sh**ty 'family' show on? I wouldn't want kids watching this....looks like a trashy strip show! Gees there's a time + place for it! How sad that these women feel the need to dress like that when they know kids watch the show [sic]"
Speaking to the Daily Mail about their reunion, 41-year-old Nicole Scherzinger said: "It was so great to be back together again. The energy from the crowd was amazing and spurred us on."
