The X Factor
Rita Ora made a statement wearing a bold, see-through dress on The X FactorITV

Rita Ora stole the attention away from the acts on this week's X Factor, thanks to a daring, sheer dress that ensured all eyes were on her. The Hot Right Now singer lived up to the title of her own song, as she took her place on the judging panel in a very distracting dress.

Going bra-less for the night, the 24-year-old seemed dangerously close to exposing herself on live TV, but the singer seemed unconcerned by her rather racy sartorial display. The pop star clearly hasn't learnt her lesson after having been told to cover up after an appearance on The One Show in January, when she was still a judge on the BBC's rival talent show The Voice.

Ora appeared in a white Ermanno Scervino trouser suit, again going bra-less underneath her blazer. The BBC received over 400 complaints about the singer's plunging neckline, while Ofcom confirmed it was assessing 28 complaints and would decide whether to investigate.

At the time she vowed to dress more conservatively in future telling The Sun: "I thought to myself, 'Well, I have to be a bit appropriate if I'm going to be on TV every Saturday'."

The bold star had seemingly forgotten her last brazen outing, as she arrived for the second live show of The X Factor in the scanty, floor-skimming number. And her latest fashion statement certainly didn't go unnoticed on social media. Writing on Twitter one unimpressed viewer wrote: "Rita Ora's dress is terrible and btw it's a family entertainment show not porno"

For those who managed to keep their eyes on the performances, it was hit or miss for Reinvention Week, as some of the acts rose to the occasion while others lost their way.

Cheryl's act 4th Power opened the show with a high-energy mash-up of their mentor's first track with Girls Aloud The Sound of the Underground and Clap Clap. While Simon Cowell dismissed the song choice as an act of narcissism even he couldn't fault the performance.

Lauren Murphy took it to church with a powerful performance supported by a choir, while, Che Chesterman and Louisa Johnson raised the bar yet again with show-stopping performances. Che's soulful version of Phil Collins You Can't Hurry Love had "turned the competition upside down" said Simon, while Louisa's take on Michael Jackson's Billie Jean had the judge's in raptures. "This is the reason why I do this show. To find talent like you. You have the potential, Louisa, to be someone very, very special" said Simon, as the judges gave her a standing ovation.

Max Stone's reinvention didn't quite work, when he appeared in a beach setting, playing a ukele, singing a reggae style version of Over the Rainbow that fell foul of the judges.

Monica Michaels, the wildcard entry, had a similarly mixed reaction, after she ditched her trademark street style and glammed up for her performance of Crazy In Love. The aspiring singer also had a touch of the Rita Ora's about her, as she took to the stage in a cleavage baring dress.

"Monica Michaels that was the XX Factor," said a stunned Cheryl. Simon didn't hesitate to criticize her new look saying. "I didn't love it, I hated it. This is not you."

The surprise hit of the night was Cheryl's act Reggie N' Bollie, who had the audience and the judges on their feet for their version of One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful. While the double act had the crowd on their side, they also received a thumbs up from none other than Liam Payne, who was watching in the audience.

"On paper that shouldn't have worked," said Simon, "but I absolutely loved it!"

The singers will regroup on Sunday to find out who will be the next act to go home. Meanwhile, Rita Ora might want to find the rest of her dress.

The X Factor continues on ITV on Sunday 8 November at 8pm.
