Last night, Jennifer Lopez performed her new single “Live It Up” on Britain’s Got Talent. Though judge Simon Cowell called the number “world class,” some viewers disagreed: Lopez’s performance incited a flurry of angry tweets as well as a string of calls to British regulator Ofcom complaining that her outfit was inappropriate for a family program.
Did Lopez show too much of her bottom half or was this a below-the-belt attack? Click on to see more photos and a video clip of Lopez’s sexy song and dance.
Lopez performed in over-the-knee boots, a pair of feathered sleeves, and a very high-cut black leotard. In the course of her five-minute set, the former American Idol judge gave the audience a view of her barely-covered backside and executed a dance move involving a forward-facing pelvic thrust. The overall effect was revealing, but was it inappropriate?
In a statement to EW, an ITV spokesperson says, “We do not believe that Jennifer Lopez’s performance would have exceeded the expectations of the vast majority of the audience for this long-established entertainment program.” If it’s any consolation, JLo seems to be having a lot of fun here.
