Temperatures shot through the roof on Sunday night's X Factor show when Ellie Goulding took to the stage practically half-naked in a dress that gave 'cutout' a whole new meaning.

While Julien Macdonald scraped through to the next round of Strictly by the skin of his teeth, one of his creations was almost the star of the show over on ITV as Ellie stepped onto the stage to sing her hit Burn in the VERY revealing glittering gold gown, which appeared to be missing half its material.

A nude body suit underneath maintained Ellie's modesty and she paired the frock with a sheeny pair of metallic silver trainers.

Unfortunately for Ellie, however, Beyonce had worn this dress in promo pics for her Mrs Carter world tour - leaving some to suggest she couldn't live up to Queen B in the fringed number.

And users took to Twitter to share their views on the dress, with some not-so-kind comments being shared. According to the Daily Mail, one wrote: : "I don't know what's worse between Ellie Goulding's singing or that dress she's wearing."
