New Zealand’s The X Factor judges, Natalia Kills and Willy Moon, were let go from the show after bullying contestant Joe Irvine on the show Sunday night. Wow did Natalia Kills really disappointed me with her actions but her husband not so much you can tell he has an ego. Yes I called him out because its true. She must be blindly in love. Who would have thought such a beautiful talented singer would be so dark, evil, and a bully?
Joe performed “Cry Me A River” on the show looked super handsome and delivered a beautiful performance. But not everyone’s likes apparently as the British singer Natalia called him a doppelganger of her husband Willy and attacking the contestant with her words as I quote:
“As an artist who respects creative integrity and intellectual property, I am disgusted at how much you have copied my husband, from the hair to the suit,” she said. “Do you not have any value or respect for originality? You’re a laughingstock. It’s cheesy, it’s disgusting. I personally found it absolutely artistically atrocious I am embarrassed to be sitting here having to even dignify you with an answer of my opinion”
Meanwhile her husband and fellow judge also joined in adding fuel to the fire with comments like “To me it feels a little bit cheap and absurd. I mean you’re like Norman Bates dressing up in his mother’s clothing its just a little bit creepy and I feel like you’re going to stitch someone skin to your face and the kill everybody in the audience BUT do you!
Where to Natalia added “I am going to say it it was absolutely disgusting. You have no identity I’m ashamed to be here”
” I think you look good because you’re dressed like my husband” to which by this point Mel another one of the judges was the only one to intervene and defend Joe. Joe on the other hand received support from famous superstars Lorde, Ed Sheeran, and many more. Of course his amount of supporters throughout the world also escalated quite quickly. Later Natalia apologized for her actions blaming the production staff for making up controversy and dialogue for ratings. The couple fled New Zealand right after the show and leaving everyone to wonder who would replace them. Due to the amount of controversy aroused MediaWorks who is the broadcaster that airs X Factor and its Chief Executive Mark Weldon announced the two’s departure from the show Monday in a statement to New Zealand’s The Hits.
The statement released reads:
“Contestants put their all into this competition and they should expect to receive feedback and criticism that is professional and constructive,” he said. “We no longer have confidence that Kills and Moon are the right people to perform the role of X Factor judges and they will leave the show, effective immediately.”
The new judges added to the panel are Australian recording artist, actress, and television personality Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Shelton Woolright drummer of British rock band I AM GIANT. Here is to wishing the best of luck to both judges, all of the contestants, and may the best one win. Remember to have ZERO tolerance for bullies they can come in all shapes, sizes, and apparently in singers who are so talented but so ugly inside.
