Natalia Kills & Willy Moon Fired From X Factor New Zealand For Bullying A Contestant!

Move over Simon Cowell, there’s a new mean singing competition judge in town…

Or at least, there was!

On Sunday’s episode of X Factor New Zealand, Natalia Kills and her husband Willy went off on a contestant who bared some resemblance to the latter judge.

And when we say they went off, that’s just an understatement!

laid into Joe Irvine after he performed Cry Me A River on the live episode of the Top 13 for copying her hubby and lacking creativity.

It’s seriously mean… but this isn’t even her first controversy of the season: She had to issue an apology after admonishing the audience with swears during the audition rounds!

To the reality TV show’s credit, Natalia and Willy were ahead of Monday’s elimination, so it’s pretty clear Joe got the last laugh.

Plus, Willy isn’t even that famous, if anything, Joe was copying Sam Smith!

Ch-ch-check out the insensitive outburst (below)!!!

Simon Cowell Lowers The Age Limit On X Factor In Hopes Of Finding The Next Best Thing — A.K.A, Another One Direction!

It’s pretty much safe to say Simon Cowell is the driving force behind One Direction‘s success!

He did pick those boys and grouped them together when they appeared on X Factor the very first time. But even though they placed third in the competition, they’re certainly number one in every tween’s heart at the moment!

So, it’s no surprise that the X judge to recreate that success with , younger band, that’s why he lowered the age from 16 to 14!

A source close to the situation is claiming:

knows that young people make the best pop stars. He desperately wants another One or Cher Lloyd and they were very young when they appeared on the show.”

Young people may make the best pop stars, but 14 might be a little too young for a competition show!

Think of the emotional distress these kids could go through when they’re rejected!

So Perezilicious readers, do U think the new age limit is appropriate?!

She said:

“Of course I want to see Cheryl back on The X Factor – who doesn’t right? Simon don’t be mean – just pay her what it takes – The British Public want her back on their TV!”

So, what do you say, Simon? Is that enough for you to Cheryl back?

If that wasn’t compelling enough, maybe KatyKat can convince you some more!

The Unconditionally singer added:

“Cheryl is absolutely adorable – and if I perform on The UK X Factor next season and Cheryl isn’t one of the judges – then Simon you are going to have me to answer to.”

Yikes! We wouldn’t want to be in that line of fire!
