Jennifer Lopez is living it up with her sexy self. The 43-year-old singer gave a very provocative performance of her new single “Live It Up” on Tuesday night’s episode of “Britain’s Got Talent” — and it’s causing quite a commotion.

Lopez’s overtly sexual appearance has sparked outrage among viewers and is being blasted as “inappropriate” for a family-friendly program.

Wearing black thigh-high boots and a very high-cut, skin-tight black bodysuit that barely covered her booty and featured outrageous black bolero feather sleeves, J.Lo tore up the stage. Some of her suggestive dance moves are also getting some, uh, heat, after the camera captured some eyebrow-raising crotch shots while she was writhing on the floor, in addition to Lopez shaking her backside at the camera, and oh yes, there was also a pole involved at one point.

Ofcom, the agency that regulates broadcasting in the U.K. (similar to the FCC), says that it was inundated with complaints following Lopez’s number on “BGT.”

“Ofcom can confirm that it has received complaints about the ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ broadcast last night, which we are assessing but not currently investigating,” a spokesperson said in a statement, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

“BGT” judge Simon Cowell, on the other hand, had a different point of view, calling J.Lo’s performance “seriously world class.” He also Tweeted, “Jo lo incredible on the show tonight. A total superstar.” Then he corrected himself, “Oops I meant j lo.”

So far, Lopez has not commented on the controversy. But after the racy rendition, Lopez posted an image on Instagram showing her male back-up dancers holding her up backstage with the message: “Thanks @GotTalent for a great night #liveitup”!
