Singer Ellie Goulding has also tweeted about X Factor NZ;
She also tweeted "You sort of have to be, you know, vaguely relevant to have your style stolen just saying", in reference to Willy Moon's suits, but quickly deleted the tweet. 
 
Meanwhile no official announcement has been made on who the new judges for The X Factor NZ will be following Natalia Kills and Willy Moon's axing from the show. Popular favourites for the role appear to be in favour of singers Ginny Blackmore, Anika Moa, Opshop singer Jason Kerrison, Blindspott and I Am Giant drummer Shelton Woolright, or X Factor NZ alumni Benny Tipene.
