The majority of complaints were made regarding the raunchiness of the dance moves and costumes worn by the girl group.
Some viewers took issue with their costumes and moves being broadcast before watershed.
The performance received more than 10 times the amount of complaints as Little Mix’s performance on the show three years ago, which was branded “too sexy” by critics.
Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Carmit Bachar and Jessica Sutta have reunited without sixth member Melody Thornton.
The band are embarking on a UK and Ireland tour in the new year.
