*Janelle Monae left some fans of “The Voice” upset and taking to Twitter with complaints that her performance on Monday’s show was too raunchy for the 8 o’clock hour.

Monae performed her latest single “Make Me Feel,” a sexual song that has been dubbed an anthem for the LGBTQ community. The choreography involved a lot of pelvic thrusting and sliding around the stage.

“You got me right here in your jean pocket/ Laying your body on a shag carpet,” Monae sang while gliding on her hands and knees.

Twitter quickly filled with complaints form viewers, with many asking how NBC let it slide, especially since the show had an 8 p.m. time slot, (traditionally a safe space for family viewings). Others had a problem with her back-ups dancers being scantily clad.
