The pair were interviewed on the popular US chat show in advance of the live phase of the show - and Britney clearly doesn't agree with the old adage of showing cleavage or legs but not both.
The pop star-turned-talent show judge had to cross her legs to preserve her modesty in her skimpy dress as she and SiCo shared their anecdotes about Britters' start on the show.
SiCo explained that he had needed to reassure the 30-year-old after the audience booed her on her first day.
"She looked at me like what have I signed up for here, after two hours we had a conversation and it was like I'm not sure I should be doing this they all hate me, they're booing me," he said.
"I said you're doing a brilliant job get used to it."
And Britney herself added: "You're just like 'cringe,' you're just like 'oh my god'"
US magazine Lucky decided to apologise to readers this week after publishing a cover photo of Britney looking heavily airbrushed and wearing a wig.
The publication tweeted: "Thank-you all for sharing your thoughts on our cover! As always, we will share with our team and we're sorry to have let some of you down."
