arisxandra-libantino-one-night-onlyArisxandra Libantino's audition in "Britain's Got Talent" aired on Saturday night drew flak from some people.

According to UnrealityTV, bosses of the ITV network had to speak in defense of their show and Libantino.

Having an 11-year-old girl sing an adult song like this is simply sexualising children. It’s incredibly damaging because this show is marketed at primary school children," Mediawatch UK director Vivienne Pattison told The Daily Mail tabloid, apparently unhappy with Libantino's mature version of the Hudson song.

"ITV appear to have completely ignored the Ofcom guidelines – I don’t even know why they put the guidelines out. This kind of thing is not what families want to see," she added.

ITV, meanwhile, is unfazed.

"In its seventh series, Britain’s Got Talent celebrates variety and showcases a wide range of different acts. Mindful of our family audience, the performance was carefully edited to ensure it was suitably inexplicit," the network said in a statement.

ITV is a commercial public service TV network in the United Kingdom. Launched in 1955 under the auspices of the Independent Television Authority (ITA) to provide competition to the BBC,it is also the oldest commercial network in the UK. -report from ABS-CBN; Wikipedia
