Lady Gaga’s racy performance on 'The X Factor' will not be investigated by UK communications watchdog Ofcom despite more than 300 people complaining about it.
A total of 317 people complained about the act which featured the US star in a skimpy outfit made of shells and flesh-coloured underwear.
Speaking after the performance on the Sunday night results show on October 27, an ITV spokeswoman said the broadcaster did “not believe Lady Gaga’s performance was inappropriate for the family audience of 'The X Factor' results show”.
Ofcom also received 122 complaints about Robin Thicke’s performance of his controversial hit 'Blurred Lines' on the show a week earlier, but again decided not to take action.
A spokesman for the watchdog said: “We assessed the complaints and concluded there were no grounds to investigate.”
It is not the first time the hit ITV show has run into trouble.
The 2010 final, which featured Christina Aguilera and her backing dancers in a racy routine, was described as being ”at the very margin of acceptability” by Ofcom.
A report said the ”sexualised” pre-watershed scenes sparked 2,868 complaints to the media regulator after Aguilera donned a short black dress while her female dancers, who were bent over chairs, wore suspenders, bra tops, fishnet stockings and basques in the raunchy routine.
