Surprise! Surprise!

Not everyone was a fan of Beyoncé and Jay Z's super-sexy 2014 Grammys performance of "Drunk in Love."

According to documents obtained by the Smoking Gun, Bey and J's awards show opener offended enough viewers that a handful of peeved people filed written complaints to the FCC in regards to their steamy number. So which parts of the chair-dancing, booty-grinding performance did viewers take umbrage with?

One non-fan labeled Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love" performance a "lip-synch soft porn dance on a chair" and called it "grossly inappropriate." "Her spread eagle poses barely covered her vulva and the smoke machine didn't solve the problem," they wrote. "Grinding against her husband ala stripper style is hardly an acceptable way to demonstrate marital love in front of children" (how does this person think children are made?).

Another penned, "This was supposed to be a family show but was anything but trash," (since when are the Grammys on the same level as 7th Heaven?). The added, "As an adult, after that performance was over with I felt like I should be taking antibiotics for something it was that trashy."

"I did not appreciate seeing the opening act of a woman putting her naked butt in the camera lens, spreading her legs in front of the camera, behaving in a pornographic manner, then her husband JayZ comes on, they minus well have had sex with one another on stage," another complained. "Where is the class? I want to ask Beyoncé if it's ok if I stick my butt in her childs face like she did mine?" (somewhere, Blue Ivy is shaking her head).

Finally, one parents with a very mature teenager wrote, "This program aired at 7:00 PM and was filled with obscene dancing and language. My 16 year old daughter was viewing the show with me and she had the good sense to say ‘this is totally inappropriate.'"

Do you agree? Was it too much or just right? Sound off in the comments.
