'X Factor' Contestant Drops Pants During Performance, Disgusts Judges (VIDEO)

'The X Factor' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) premiere was filled with inspirational stories and impressive vocal performances, but also featured one moment that was considerably less uplifting. A male performer unexpectedly dropped his pants in the middle of a song, disgusting Paula Abdul and everyone else in attendance.

As the flasher, who claimed to be a classically trained musician, sang "Let's get nude, don't be a prude," he pulled down his pants. The judges and live audience shrieked in horror, and Paula Abdul walked to a bathroom backstage, feeling sick to her stomach. Simon Cowell could only sit there stone-faced, looking disgusted, as the man sang, "I'm a stud," repeatedly.

After the performance, L.A. Reid chastised the flasher. "That was offensive, disgusting, distasteful, upsetting ... get him out of the building, please."
