Gary Barlow has described being shocked by the 'moves' performed by some girls auditioning for 'The X Factor' -- saying they have been influenced by the sexual content of today's music videos.

'The X Factor' judge (40) also revealed that he had to switch off the TV when his children were watching, because of a music video, and that he had been aghast to hear nine-year-olds singing rude lyrics from a Black Eyed Peas song.

Barlow said that the "so sexual" content of music videos had "filtered down" to youngsters performing when they auditioned for 'The X Factor'.

He told 'OK! magazine': "Music videos these days are so sexual.

"The other day, I wanted some music in the kitchen and put on one of the music TV channels and a video came on which was so rude that I had to turn it off because my nine-year-old was with me."

He said he was not a "prude" but did not want his children -- aged 11, nine and two -- seeing the videos.
