LMFAO: 'Speedos prevented us getting X Factor gig'

Dance-pop duo LMFAO think the skimpy choice of underwear in their new video for 'Sexy And I Know It' put producers of The X Factor off booking them for a live performance. 

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, Redfoo and Sky Blu admitted their penchant for speedos probably cost them the gig and they were even asked "not to wear them" during the taping of a different U.S. television talent show:

"You’d be surprised how many people don’t like our Speedos. We were asked not to wear them on US TV show Dancing With The Stars and I think they may have prevented us getting a gig on X Factor."

“The Australians love them though.”

Watch their risqué video for 'Sexy And I Know It', along with an interview in which they discuss their skimpy look, here:
