Nicole Scherzinger, Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta and Carmit Bachar left Parents outraged on Friday morning after their racy live performance on Channel Seven breakfast show, ‘sunrise’ as they sing their biggest hits in Sydney’s Martin Place while dressed in latex outfits and fishnet stockings.
In scathing comments left on Sunrise’s Facebook page, several viewers claimed the performance was not appropriate for 8 am with one wondering Why they were chosen to be on a family-friendly show while another one claimed it was uncomfortable explaining to kids why a singing strip show is on. Others went ahead and slammed the group’s talent claiming they weren’t good performers and wouldn’t last five minutes on one of Australia’s talent shows while one critic accused them of lip syncing.
However this isn’t the first time The Pussycat Dolls have been criticized for pushing a worse performance on stage. The group was condemned for their recent performance on Britain’s Saturday Night Takeaway which received dozens of viewer complaints in February. They also received hundreds of complaints for their comeback performance on The X Factor UK in late November.
Pussycat Dolls star Kimberly Wyatt has hit back at critics saying they were misunderstood but luckily they have a presence online now and they can help people understand them, understand their dance and understand what intention means as a performer.
The band has also received support from their fan base as some of their fans praising them for their thrilling performance and slamming parents for criticizing the group as people still wear less clothes at the beach and more revealing at the gym.
They were the hot girl group of the Noughties who took the world by storm with their sexy burlesque inspire dance routines and they are currently Down Under promoting their latest single, React, a song which is the group’s first new release in a decade and has been praised by critics but has so far failed to achieve chart success.
