The show said it will not air a taped segment featuring the California Gurls singer and Elmo.

The pop star - who is engaged to British actor Russell Brand and is known for her risque outfits - wore a gold bustier top as she sang a version of her hit Hot & Cold. But some felt it was too revealing for the children's show.

In a statement, Sesame Street said that in light of the "feedback we've received" after the excerpt was aired on YouTube, they will not include it on the show.

Perry's representative did not comment.
