Lorde sends cupcakes to harassed X Factor contestant
Natalia Kills and Willy Moon
Joe Irvine has had a rough week
— but the X Factor NZ star has
had a boost after getting cupcakes
and a personalised message from
The Devonport pop star sent
Irvine a box with a note and
a dozen cupcakes after the
Christchurch competitor was
harassed by judges Natalia Kills
and Willy Moon after performing
in Sunday night’s TV3 show.
Lorde’s note read: “Hi Joe, Just
wanted to say : Your individuality,
positive energy and spirit are
infectious! I think you’re doing an
awesome job on the show so far.
“I’m a performer too and I
wanted to say that no matter how
many people make fun of me for
how I dress, move and act, I’m
being me — and that ’s what ’s
important. Good luck and lots of
love, L orde. ”
Irvine thanked Lorde on Twitter,
saying he hoped to one day meet
Wills and Moon were removed
as X Factor judges after a tirade of
insults towards Irvine following his
Kills had accused Irvine of
copying her husband, fellow judge
Willy Moon, “from the hair to the
suit”, and said he was a “laughing
stock” and made her “sick”.
Moon added that Irvine
reminded him of a creepy killer
and found his performance “cheap
Both Moon and Kills were
heavily criticised on social media
for their treatment of Irvine, with
Blatt and Walker chiding Kills
and saying the situation was out of
Ed Sheeran has added his voice
to the growing amount of support
for the young singer, tweeting to
tell Irvine: “Don’t worry about
what anyone else says man. Enjoy
yourself with it, that ’s what singing
is about, not what other people
Media Works, the owners of
TV3, confirmed it had fired Kills
and Moon just hours before the
pair were due to feature on the live
It is understood the media
company had come under extreme
pressure from sponsors and fellow
judges Stan Walker and Melanie
Blatt to take action.
In a statement, Media Works
chief executive Mark Weldon said:
“Last night on X Factor both Kills
and Moon made comments that
were completely unacceptable.
“ While the judges on X Factor
are expected to provide critiques
of the performances, we will not
tolerate such destructive tirades
from any of the judges,” he said.
“Contestants put their all into
this competition and they should
expect to receive feedback and
criticism that is professional and
constructive. 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
