Nothing X-rated please! X Factor's teenage contestants say no to raunchy costumes

The outfits on the X Factor live shows are often as talked about as some of the performances.

But this year’s teenage contestants have said no to any x-rated ensembles.

Young hopeful Amelia Lily, 16, admitted her outfit for the first live show this Saturday was changed as she felt it was inappropriate and too sexy for her young age.


Clean-cut: Amelia Lily, 16, and Misha Bryan, 18, say they don't want a repeat of last year's controversy after a provocative performance by Rihanna

She told the Daily Mail this week: ‘There have been a few things going on with me, they have been dressing me in outfits and they have had to take me out of some of them because they were too revealing because of my age. That is just them experimenting, little things. It's better to be careful.’

The teenager from Middlesbrough said she didn’t want a repeat of last year’s controversy after provocative performances by popstars Rihanna and Christina Aguilera’s last year.


She said: ‘Because it was a family television show it was a little bit raunchy.’

Misha Bryan, 18, from Manchester added: ‘Rihanna is from Barbados and that kind of dancing is cultural in Caribbean islands. But on national TV when there are millions of people watching and little kids watching, it is too much.’


Big change: Janet Devlin, 16, has already been given a dramatic makeover with her blonde hair being dyed red

The risqué pre-watershed performances on last year’s final, which was watched live by more than a million young children, led to ITV being flooded with complaints from shocked viewers. and media regulator Ofcom received 2,868 complaints.

When asked if he would be taking the complaints into consideration for the series this year, X Factor supremo Simon Cowell, 51, said: ‘I think based on the reaction we’d have to tone it down a bit.’

Ofcom said: ‘We have been holding talks over the summer ramming home the point that we don’t want to see things like this again. We want to make sure that during family primetime shows, people are very much in safe territory and sticking to the rules.’


In it to win it: Kelly's four finalsist in the girls category are Janet, Sophie Habibis, Amelia and Misha

While the wardrobe may be tame, the style transformations have already proved shocking in the run-up to this Saturday’s ITV1 show.

All of the 16 final acts were given makeovers ahead of the live shows.

Bookmakers favourite Janet Devlin, 16, was given one of the most dramatic style overhauls with her mousy brain tresses dyed bright red.

She confessed her striking new look was sprung on her by X Factor stylists: ‘I heard all these guys talking about the makeovers and stuff and I said I bet you they are gonna dye my hair ginger and when they told me.. I was like....I was cool.’
