NBC censored a steamy pole dance Pamela Anderson performed while Elton John sang "The Bitch is Back" during his primetime special.
The entire number was cut out of the Monday night broadcast of John's concert in Las Vegas, E! Online reported Wednesday.
The routine was included in preview copies of "Elton John: The Red Piano" that were sent out to critics.
Neither John nor Anderson had commented on the edit as of Wednesday, E! said.
