Okay, now that you're caught up let me start by saying that their comments were completely unnecessary, and a desperate cry for attention. Natalia goes on to accuse contestant Joe Irvine of copying her husband's style, because he was wearing a suit, and had his hair combed back. Willy Moon, Natalia's husband, went on to say that it was "like Norman Bates dressing up in his mother's clothing," and that he felt like Joe would murder the crowd. Thankfully the other judges stepped in to defend Irvine, but not until after the damage had been done.
I've watched this video a few times and cannot even begin understand what would prompt these two judges to verbally attack a contestant because of an outfit choice. It was disgusting behavior, and shows just why these two "artists" are virtually unknown to the majority of the music world.
Celebrities like Ed Sheeran, Lorde, and Ellie Goulding, all rose to the defense of Joe, sending out supportive tweets, and bashing Natalia and Willy for their hateful words. XFactorNZ released a statement later that night informing the public that Natalia and Willy would no longer be returning to the show as judges, effective immediately. In addition, Natalia lost her record deal with Cherrytree Records months ago, and the two have left New Zealand and fled to Los Angeles.
As far as Natalia Kills being an artist that "respects creative integrity and intellectual property," I'll leave this here...
